Call for contributed papers
An international initiative group from the academic realm has established a new
(/2014/), bi-annual scientific journal, whose profile is focused on the theory
of art and visual communication, which we want to be indexed as soon as possible in
international databases. We publish articles written in English, French, Spanish.
Articles submitted for publication are subject to a double blind 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 art 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
- communication studies, communication theory, media theory
seeking congruence between the traditional (disciplinary) approaches and the contingent
methods of academic investigation.
