J for Artistic Research, Issue 2 (Feb 2012)

Deadline for submissions: 15 February 2012
Website: http://www.jar-online.net

Artistic research is a newly emergent and rapidly evolving field, whose status is still hotly debated. The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) has been launched to provide an influential voice in this debate, conceived as a platform for the re-negotiation of the relationship between art and academia, and the role and function of research in artistic practice.

Supporting JAR’s publishing activities is the innovative repository for the documentation of artistic research, the Research Catalogue (RC). An upgraded version of this free-to-use software and database will be online on the occasion of JAR 1. Through RC, we welcome submissions to the second issue of JAR by 15th February 2012. Please visit our website for further information.

JAR embraces research practices across disciplines, inviting exchange that enhances artistic research methodologies across the arts, sciences and humanities, emphasizing the transdisciplinary character of much artistic research.

Unlike the traditional journal article format, JAR offers its contributors a dynamic online canvas where text can be woven together with image, audio and video. This new approach displays research practice in a manner that respects artists’ modes of presentation and will incorporate web-enabled possibilities for collaboration, debate and discussion.

Working with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers the journal offers a unique reading experience while fulfilling the expectations of scholarly dissemination. As particular feature, JAR makes final review reports public. The reports are available on http://www.researchcatalogue.net  and can directly be accessed through the menu item ‘About this research’ in the HOME menu of each research exposition. We invite further comments to be left with the research, which is possible after login.

JAR 1 is online NOW with contributions by Sarah Alford (Canada), Sarah Breen Lovett (Australia), Nell Breyer (USA), Laura F. Gibellini (USA), Laura Maes (Belgium), Vincent Meelberg (The Netherlands), David Overend (UK), Martin Tröndle et al. (Germany).

Editor in chief: Michael Schwab

Editorial board: Annette Arlander, Henk Borgdorff, Barnaby Drabble, Mika Elo, Nicola Foster and Julian Klein.

Associate editors: Adam Broinowski, Michel van Dartel, Ana Garcia-Lopez, Raimi Gbadamosi, Rachel Mader, Siobhan Murphy, Joey Orr, Peter Peters, Sofie van Loo and Johan Verbeke.
