Journal for Artistic Research (JAR)
Submission deadline: 15 July 2019
JAR is an internationally recognized Open Access journal that publishes artistic research from all arts disciplines including (but not limited to) the visual arts, architecture, dance, design, film, literature, music, painting, performance, photography, poetry, sculpture, theatre, video art, urban planning, etc. The journal seeks submissions of artists and theorists focusing on artistic research, with or without academic affiliation, and at all stages of their research curriculum.
Rethinking the traditional journal format, JAR offers its contributors a free-to-use online space called the Research Catalogue (RC) where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material allowing for creative modes of presenting and documenting artistic work. We are specifically interested in contributions that reflect upon and expose artistic practice as research, and welcome submissions from artists interested in opening up the processes that underlie their practice. Please view our archive to get a sense of what we publish.
JAR now also accepts submissions in Spanish, Portuguese and German as well as English. We are in the process of expanding our editor and peer reviewer base.
To be accepted for peer review, the Editorial Board considers the degree to which the exposition is conceptually and artistically strong, considered, and significant to the field, and whether the submission exposes artistic practice as research. This last aspect engages with questions and claims about knowledges within practice. For more information about the notion of ‘exposition’ please read the editorial to JAR0.
Please register for a free account on the RC and use the online space to design and submit your research. JAR provides editorial and technical guidance with these processes.
