land art, embodiment, nutrition and exhaustion.

'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.
Š 'Artistic' understood through this lens directs 
attention away from the results of singular human 
activity and its outcomes towards 
quasi-autonomous creative and epistemic 

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.

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
