About the Journal

Focus and Scope

Nordic Journal of Art & Research is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access journal aimed at disseminating knowledge and experience from research and development projects based on artistic practice and reflection, art education, art theory, cultural theory, and related areas. The journal is related to the disciplines and practices of the arts, such as music, visual arts, dance, drama and theatre. The journal also welcomes interdisciplinary contributions that challenge and cross traditional boundaries. Contexts can range from education to various other institutional and social framings of art.

Nordic Journal of Art & Research welcomes contributions from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. The journal publishes peer reviewed  professional contributions of high quality for the Nordic research community.

The journal makes use of the varied opportuities online publication offers by opening for both traditional text-based articles and contributions that include audio, images, and video material. In cooperation with OsloMet - Oslo Metropolitan University, we are developing a platform for publication that should provide the best possibilities for the presentation of varied multi-media items.
