JAR publishes artistic research from all arts disciplines, with
or without academic affiliation, and includes the work of artistic research
practitioners and theorists. Rethinking the traditional journal format, JAR
offers its contributors a free-to-use online space called the Research
Catalogue (RC) where text can be woven together with image, audio
and video material allowing for creative modes of presenting and documenting
artistic work. The Journal is specifically interested in contributions that
reflect upon and expose artistic practice as research, and welcomes submissions
from artists interested in exchanging ideas and opening up the processes and
