The Journal of Contemporary Painting (JCP) is a discursive peer-reviewed publication concerned with the practice of contemporary painting in its broadest sense. JCP treats painting as a context for discussion, exploring its sphere of influence, rather than as a medium-specific debate and is particularly interested in research emerging from practice-based projects. This title is indexed with Scopus and the Web of Science’s Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). For more information, to access the journal or to subscribe visit the Discover platform here.
The aim of Craft Research is to advocate and promote current and emerging craft research, including research into materials, processes, methods, concepts, aesthetic and style. This may be in any discipline area of the applied arts and crafts, including craft education. The journal will portray and build the crafts as a vital and viable modern discipline that has a vision for the future. It is distinct from mainstream journals in that it is dedicated to presenting and reporting on research, in the widest sense, in order to advance the knowledge in the field. Making this knowledge, in whatever form, available to the community will help build and advance the field, and present it – in all its diversity – as a strong and essential force that cannot be overlooked. All articles are double-blind peer-reviewed in order to maintain the highest standards of scholastic integrity. This title is indexed with Scopus and the Web of Science’s Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). For more information, to access the journal or to subscribe visit the Discover platform here.
Philosophy of Photography is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the scholarly understanding of photography. It is not committed to any one notion of photography nor, indeed, to any particular philosophical approach. The purpose of the journal is to provide a forum for debate on theoretical issues arising from the historical, political, cultural, scientific and critical matrix of ideas, practices and techniques that may be said to constitute photography as a multifaceted form. In a contemporary context remarkable for its diversity and rate of change, the conjunction of the terms 'philosophy' and 'photography' in the journal’s title is intended to act as a provocation to serious reflection on the ways in which existing and emergent photographic discourses might engage with and inform each other. This title is indexed with the Web of Science’s Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). For more information, to access the journal or to subscribe visit the Discover platform here.
Studies in Comics aims to describe the nature of comics, to identify the medium as a distinct art form and to address the medium's formal properties. The emerging field of comics studies is a model for interdisciplinary research and this peer-reviewed journal welcomes all approaches and methodologies. Its specific goal, however, is to expand the relationship between comics and theory and to seek to articulate a 'theory of comics'. This title is indexed with Scopus and the Web of Science’s Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). For more information, to access the journal or to subscribe visit the Discover platform here.
JAWS is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes new art and writing from early- to mid-career researchers and practitioners working across creative disciplines.

Supporting criticality and experimentation in arts writing, the journal connects authors to an international audience. JAWS welcomes divergent and/or unconventional forms, as well as more traditional submissions. For more information, to access the journal or to subscribe, visit the Discover platform here.
The Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art seeks to explore the relationship between contemporary art and Chinese cultural identity in its broadest sense.

It also explores works produced by artists of non-Chinese ethnicity who live and work within Chinese contexts or whose work has a strong relationship to Chinese culture, society and history. This journal was established in 2014 by Founding Editor Paul Gladston. The journal operates on the basis of thematic CFPs only, please consult the current CFPs before submission. This title is indexed with Scopus and the Web of Science’s Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). For more information, to access the journal or to subscribe visit the Discover platform here.
