Journal for Artistic Research

Call for Submissions

The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR), published by the Society for Artistic Research, invites submissions to its third issue. The Journal is a peer-reviewed, biannual publication, whose goal is to publish original research from artists of all disciplines, and promote the renegotiation of art's relationship to academia by coupling an innovative approach to publishing with peer-reviewing and scholarly rigour. A free, online resource, the journal attracts an international readership.

For its third issue, JAR invites original submissions from artists worldwide, with or without academic affiliation, who wish to reflect on and expose artistic practice, processes and research in exchange with a group of engaged peers and, thus, contribute to the ongoing debate about research in the arts.

With the aim of displaying and documenting practice in a manner that respects artistic modes of presentation, JAR uses the Research Catalogue (www.researchcatalogue.net), which provides a free-to-use online writing space where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. The Research Catalogue also enables collaboration, allowing multiple authors to work on the same document simultaneously. The result is a journal that promotes experimental approaches to 'writing up' and provides a unique 'reading' experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal.

It is the aim of the journal to makes use of the multi-media and social capabilities of the web to draw attention to the activities of a growing community of artistic researchers worldwide.

JAR issues are non-thematic; submissions are assessed by the editorial board, in a rolling fashion, as they are submitted. While JAR2 is in preparation, the editor invites submissions for JAR3 until the end of September 2012.
