With the aim of displaying and documenting practice in a manner that
respects the artist's modes of presentation, JAR abandons the
traditional journal article format and offers its contributors a dynamic
online canvas where text can be woven together with image, audio and
video material. The result is a journal which provides a unique
'reading' experience while fulfilling the expectations of scholarly
Artistic research is a newly emergent and rapidly evolving field, whose
status is still hotly debated. Until now there have only been limited
publication channels making it difficult to stay informed about the
development of the many topics pertinent to artistic research. JAR aims
to provide a focal point that brings together different voices,
facilitates discourse and adds to the artistic research community.
Part of JAR's mission is to re-negotiate art's relationship to academia
and the role and function of research in artistic practice. JAR embraces
research practices across disciplines, thereby emphasising the
transdisciplinary character of much artistic research.
JAR is guided by an Editorial Board that works with a large panel of
international peer reviewers from the field of artistic research. JAR is
published by the Society for Artistic Research.We welcome submissions for future issues through our Research Catalogue, which will be launched in March 2011.
The inaugural issue of JAR is released on February 17, 2011
