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.
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/
