The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is a peer-reviewed journal, publishing original research from artists of all disciplines. Published twice a year, with currently three issues accessible online, the journal is unique in its field, marrying the rich-media and social networking capabilities of online publishing to peer-review and scholarly rigour.
JAR invites original submissions for future issues from artists worldwide, with or without academic affiliation. The journal is open to submission from all artists who wish to reflect on and expose artistic practice as research, who are interested in exchanging ideas and processes with a group of engaged peers and thus willing to contribute to the ongoing debate about research in the arts.
With the aim of displaying and documenting practice in a manner that respects artistic modes of presentation, the journal uses the Research Catalogue, a free-to-use online tool that allows the weaving together of text, image, audio and video material. JAR is open to all possible approaches to the publication of research, including those that use little or no text. The Research Catalogue also enables collaboration, allowing multiple authors to work on the same document simultaneously and submit to the journal as a team. Articles that are not accepted for publication in JAR can be self-published, free of charge in the Research Catalogue.
JAR is a free, open-access resource, with an international readership and a growing pool of renowned artistic and academic reviewers. The journal's issues are non-thematic and submissions are considered by an experienced editorial board, in a rolling fashion, as they are submitted. To submit an article, contributors are required to register for an account on the Research Catalogue, 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 acquaint themselves with previous issues at www.jar-online.net (the inaugural issue, JAR0, is a good place to start) and then contact the journal to discuss the suitability of their material and receive advice on progressing towards submission.
