The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is a new international,  
online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal for the identification,  
publication and dissemination of artistic research and its  

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

unique �reading� experience while fulfilling the
expectations of  
scholarly dissemination.

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.
