Journal for Artistic Research Call for Submissions

Journal for Artistic Research

Call for Submissions: JAR Issue 15 – Winter 2017

The deadline for consideration is 7 July 2017

JAR publishes artistic research from all arts disciplines, with or without academic affiliation, and includes the work of artistic research practitioners and theorists. Rethinking the traditional journal format, JAR offers its contributors a free-to-use online space called the Research Catalogue (RC) where media can be woven together, whether it be text, image, audio and/or video material. JAR promotes experimental approaches to the writing up of research and provides a unique reading experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal. While JAR’s remit is broad, 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. Please view our archive to get a sense of what we publish.

To be considered for Peer Review, the editorial board considers:

  1. Whether the exposition exposes artistic practice as research. This goes beyond simply documenting, describing, or writing about work. It engages with questions and claims about knowledge within practice. For a detailed articulation of this please read the editorial to JAR0.
  2. The degree to which the exposition is conceptually and artistically strong, considered, and significant to the field. 
  3. Whether the multimedia and design capacities of the RC have been used effectively and meaningfully to support the argument or understanding of the research.

To submit an article, contributors are required to register for an account on the RC and use the online writing space to layout and expose their research. JAR provides editorial and technical guidance with these processes.
