JAR has been increasingly successful in engaging the most diverse communities of researchers, who—despite our status as an academic publication—are often activists at the fringes of or outside academia. Our communications with these researchers reveal that, while definitions of ‘research’ remain concerns, the adjective ‘artistic’ in our title perhaps introduces more unnecessary complications than we may initially have anticipated… ‘Artistic,’ understood through this lens, directs attention away from the results of singular human activity and its outcomes towards quasi-autonomous creative and epistemic processes.”

Read the full editorial.

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.

The forthcoming deadline for submissions is February 29. Click here for more information on the submission process. Send your correspondence to Barnaby Drabble, Managing Editor, Journal for Artistic Research (JAR), [email protected].

JAR works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer reviewers.

Editor-in-Chief: Michael Schwab
Editorial Board: Annette Arlander, Sher Doruff, Barnaby Drabble, Mika Elo, Julian Klein, and Isidro López-Aparicio
