Editorial

Welcome to JAR1, the first open submission and peer-reviewed issue of the Journal for Artistic Research. JAR remains a work-in-progress, and with this issue we introduce two major enhancements to the journal: a dedicated and open peer-reviewing process and an upgraded publication platform (the Research Catalogue) that is easier to use than its predecessor and enhanced with an initial set of social media functions. With these developments JAR builds on its interest in improving the artistic and intellectual value of research publications, by strengthening the link to the community of artists and researchers. The publication of JAR 1 is a particularly important occasion for us, because, over the past months we have been looking at the key problem of how best to peer-review artistic research. We have come up with a solution we are tentatively proud of, aware that the peer-reviewing we propose is vital for the journal’s credibility, artistic or otherwise. We are interested to hear what you think.Click here to Read More
