An international initiative group from the academic realm has established a bi-annual scientific journal, whose profile is focused on the theory of art and visual communication. We publish articles written in English, French, Spanish. Articles submitted for publication are subject to a peer-review process of evaluation.
The mission of “Studies in Visual Arts and Communication – an international journal” is to endorse and promote the scholarly research in the academic fields related to Arts and Communication, as reported by academics, scholars, researchers, scientists from around the world. The Journal welcomes original high-quality papers, theoretical articles/studies, research reports and review articles which debate erudite and contemporaneous ideas, topics and issues of academic relevance, to be published and disseminated. “Studies in Visual Arts and Communication – an international journal” encourages research perspectives which result in either deeply specialised contributions or engage research across the entire range of the (classical) academic domains, but notably with a focus on Visual Arts and Communication.
Research published by the Journal encompasses (but not limited to) topics from:
* visual arts theory, criticism, history, curatorship;
* visual studies;
* hermeneutics of visual arts;
* artistic research in visual arts (reports on visual art-based research);
* aesthetic theory;
* critical theory;
* visual arts and (hard / soft) science;
* issues on creativity in the arts;
* arts related communication studies, communication theory, media theory,
seeking congruence between the traditional (disciplinary) approaches and the contingent methods of academic investigation.
The papers should be 4000 – 6000 words in length. We accept submissions in English, French and Spanish. Papers are solicited under the stated aims and scope of the Journal. Citations and references: Chicago (MLA and APA also accepted). Bibliography is a separate final section. However, we reserve the right to decline articles, if no prior agreements have been made.
