Currently, JAR does not accept proposals for special or thematic issues. Our publisher, the Society for Artistic Research (SAR), granted this possibility to its Special Interest Groups (SIG) only. If you are interested in setting up a SIG, please contact SAR directly.

For those interested in special issues, you may want to consider approaching Ruukku. Studies in Artistic ResearchVIS. Nordic Journal for Artistic Research or HUB. Journal for Research in Art, Design and Society three of the other journals that engage with the rich-media capabilities of the Research Catalogue.

As an alternative to special issues, JAR creates its Network channels, a space for thematic points of entry into artistic research or for encounters in non-English languages. Please refer to this page for further information.
