JAR supports the exposition of practice as research. …Expositions in JAR are journal articles but they are also reflexive objects in their own right. Over the course of the now 7+1 issues, we have seen a wide variety of approaches to a degree that makes even comparisons difficult. It may be the various layers of choices and their implications that result in a tendency towards uniqueness and locality, which may not have been what we had in mind when we started but which we appreciate all the more.”

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.
