“The role of ‘process’ in artistic research is not necessarily clear. There is a general tendency to believe that a research process starts with a set of questions to which over time answers are given…
Let us consider a thought experiment and assume for the moment that the point of output was moved forward towards the beginning of a research project. This move would decouple ‘output’ from ‘result’ presenting something provisional, perhaps, or a work-in-progress…
Thus, my thought experiment from above where the point at which a JAR submission is made is moved into the research process may suggest a different relationship to practice…”

JAR publishes research in a manner that respects artists’ modes of presentation and incorporates web-enabled possibilities for a mix of media, collaboration, debate, and discussion. The journal promotes experimental approaches to both ‘writing’ and ‘reading’ research, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal. We welcome submissions from across and between disciplines, from artists worldwide, with or without academic affiliation.
Call for submissions: As interest in the Journal is growing, we have moved to three issues a year. JAR7 is currently in review and we are now seeking submissions for JAR8. The forthcoming deadlines for submissions are 15 October 2014 and 16 January 2015.
