JAR is published by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR). SAR was established in March 2010 as an independent, non-profit organisation for the purpose of publishing the Journal. The Society for Artistic Research (SAR) is a non-profit organisation that nurtures, connects and disseminates artistic research as specific practices of creating knowledge and insight. SAR facilitates a range of encounters for its community of artistic practitioners in the pursuit of transformative understanding that impacts on political and societal processes as well as on cultures of research and learning.

SAR is comprised of both individual and institutional members from around the globe who support SAR through the payment of a membership fee, sponsorship, and the gifting of their time and expertise.

SAR is an international organisation, based in Switzerland and seated in Zurich.
