Call for submissions:
As interest in the Journal is growing, we have moved to three issues a year. JAR5 is currently in review and we are now seeking submissions for JAR6. The deadline for submissions is the 28th of February 2014.

Unlike the traditional journal article format, JAR offers its contributors a free-to-use online writing space where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. This new approach displays research practice in a manner that respects artists’ modes of presentation and incorporates web-enabled possibilities for collaboration, debate and discussion. The result is a journal that promotes experimental approaches to ‘writing up’ and provides a unique ‘reading’ experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal. We embrace research practices across and between disciplines, from artists worldwide, with or without academic affiliation.

JAR uses the Research Catalogue, an innovative repository for the documentation of artistic research. To submit an article, contributors are required to register for an account and use the writing space to layout and expose their research. JAR provides editorial guidance and technical help with these processes. Interested contributors should first contact the journal to discuss the suitability of their material.
