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.

Call for submissions
As interest in the Journal is growing, we have 
moved to three issues a year. JAR9 is currently 
in review and we are now seeking submissions for 
our 10th issue. The forthcoming deadline for 
submissions is October 15, 2015.
