If you are an editor of any other journal or book series that you’d like to advertise as a possible forum for the participants of this and future Winter Schools, please add your title/link as a post in the News section of this blog. We’d particularly welcome online/open access possibilities, even ‘academic hypertext‘.

Forum is a University of Edinburgh Postgraduate Journal of Culture and the Arts and a good way to gain first experience with publication. Every submission will be constructively reviewed by two postgrad students. The next issue on “Sacred and Sacrilegious” might not be immediately relevant for many of us, I’m afraid, but it might be worth keeping an eye on the next call for paper.

Forum is a peer-reviewed journal for postgraduate students working in culture and the arts. The journal takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the realm of arts and culture and considers contributions from across the spectrum of the humanities. Published biannually, each edition focuses on a selected theme, provoking discussion and debate whilst maintaining an overall coherency. Forum provides a platform for the exchange of intellectual ideas, encouraging postgraduate participation in contemporary critical debates. Our objective is to create and foster a network for the exchange and circulation of ideas within the wider postgraduate community. We seek submissions that take innovative approaches and challenge the boundaries of conventional disciplines.

Journal for Artistic Research
JAR is a free online journal that focuses on artistic practice as research, re-negotiates art’s relationship to academia and couples the multi-media and social capabilities of the web with peer-reviewing and scholarly rigour.

We invite original submissions from artists with or without academic affiliation who wish to contribute to the ongoing debate about research in the arts, and reflect on artistic practice, processes and research in exchange with a group of engaged peers.

Whether you see yourself as an artist, a designer, a musician or a performer, who works outside traditional academic research environments or an academic working on arts related research, we invite you to explore the possibilities of adopting alternative, experimental and more artistic modes of presenting research than a classic journal format may support.

With the aim of displaying and documenting practice in a manner that respects artists’ modes of presentation, JAR provides its contributors with a free to use online writing space, a dynamic online canvas where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. The result is a journal that promotes experimental approaches to ‘writing’ and provides a unique ‘reading’ experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of scholarly dissemination.

We embrace research practices across and between disciplines, and the rich-media writing space actively encourages collaboration, allowing multiple authors to work on the same document simultaneously.

JAR is guided by an editorial board that works with a large panel of international editors and peer reviewers from the field of artistic research. Check out our first peer-reviewed issue JAR 1 and join the discussion about the contributions published there.

Kritikos (ISSN 1552-5112)
Journal of Postmodern Cultural Sound, Text and Image
Kritikos has been in circulation since 2004 and publishes work in cultural theory, art and criticism. We are especially interested in what is happening now. And we welcome the work of graduate students. Share your work.

VARIATIONS is the comparative literary journal from the University of Zürich. It publishes articles in German, English and French and it serves as a forum for postgraduate students working in the field of literary studies.

Every issue publishes articles both on a chosen topic as well as contributions to current discussions in literary studies not connected to the topic of the issue. A third section contains literary and visual contributions. Furthermore, every issue closes with reviews of books recently published in the field of literary studies.

Recent topics: Contemporaneity, Riddles, The Materiality of Language, translatio, Discontinuity, Return.

Additional to the literary journal VARIATIONS there’s the series COLLECTION VARIATIONS.
