The online, peer-reviewed journal for the publication and discussion of artistic research.
Call for Submission: JAR Issue 8 - Summer 2015
The deadline for consideration is the 28th of February 2015. Interested contributors should first contact the managing editor to discuss the suitability of their material.
The Journal for Artistic Research 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 has over 5000 registered users.
Rethinking the traditional journal format, JAR offers its contributors a free-to-use online writing space where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. Developed over the last five years, the writing space is continually being updated with new functionality and the last months have seen the introduction of automated slide shows, new audio and video tools and a 3d object viewer. This approach displays research practice in a manner that respects artists' modes of presentation and incorporates web-enabled possibilities for collaboration, debate and discussion. The journal aims to promote experimental approaches to the 'writing up' of research and provide a unique 'reading' experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal.
JAR publishes research from artists of all disciplines, worldwide, with or without academic affiliation. The Journal is specifically interested in contributions that reflect upon and expose artistic practice as research, and welcomes submissions from artists 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 Research Catalogue writing space to layout and expose their research. JAR provides editorial guidance and technical help with these processes.
