Journal for Artistic Research
The online, peer-reviewed journal for the publication and discussion of artistic research.
The deadline for consideration for the Spring issue is the 30th of November 2015.
The Journal for Artistic Research is now in its 5th year and is looking for submissions from artists of all disciplines, worldwide, with or without academic affiliation, to contribute to its 10th issue. During this time, JAR published over 60 often media-rich and experimental expositions of artistic research covering all areas of interest including but not limited to fine art, music, design, architecture, philosophy and social science.
JAR is the publishing space for a growing community of artistic researchers interested in archiving, disseminating and discussing their work. It uses the Research Catalogue, an innovative repository for the documentation of artistic research, which currently has over 6000 registered users.
Rethinking the traditional journal format, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal, JAR offers its contributors a free-to-use online writing space where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. The writing space is continually being updated with new functionality and displays research practice in a manner that respects artists' modes of presentation, while incorporating web-enabled possibilities for collaboration, debate and discussion.
JAR is specifically interested in contributions that reflect upon and expose practice as research, and welcomes submissions from visual artists, architects, designers, film-makers, musicians, theatre directors, writers, choreographers, poets, performers, scientists, thinkers and doers of all kinds, interested in exchanging ideas and opening up the processes and methodologies that underlie their practice.
To submit an article, contributors are required to register for an account and use the writing space to layout and expose their research. JAR provides editorial guidance and technical help with these processes.
JAR works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers.
Editor in Chief: Michael Schwab
Editorial Board: Annette Arlander, Sher Doruff, Barnaby Drabble, Mika Elo, Julian Klein and Isidro López-Aparicio
