Aims & Scope

JAWS is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes new art and writing from early- to mid-career researchers and practitioners working across artistic mediums. 

Founded as the Journal of Arts Writing by Students at Chelsea School of Art in 2013 and published by Intellect since 2015, the journal was the first of its kind entirely dedicated to students' work in artistic research. JAWS publishes writing about art and writing as art. We welcome practice-based research, visual essays, book reviews and interviews by practitioners and researchers. We encourage divergent and/or unconventional forms, as well as more traditional submissions. As it stands, we only accept submissions in the English language, but our aim is to connect international contributors with an international audience. 

As a platform, we foster criticality and experimentation. The support and expertise of an established network of editors and peer reviewers allow for co-produced reflection and discussion, guiding our contributors to publish reimagined approaches to writing in artistic scholarship and creative practice. We aim to balance such experiments with the academic rigour of peer review alongside attentive and diligent editorial processes.

General Call for Papers 

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

JAWS: Journal of Arts Writing by Students is the first UK journal of academic work by art students, serving as a platform for peer to peer engagement and for research currently taking place within institutions as part of post and undergraduate study. The journal seeks submissions from current students in the arts across the disciplines (including fine art, research, performance, textiles, graphics and illustration) and those within their first year of graduation. Predominately aimed at those studying at postgraduate level, JAWS is the first academic arts journal entirely produced by and dedicated to current students work. It works to open new lines of discourse and collaboration and seeks to promote early career researchers across a wider academic community, demonstrating the ability, dedication and professionalism of its students.

Publication in JAWS: Journal of Arts Writing by Students provides students with valuable experience of writing for an academic journal (an essential component of Ph.D. study or an academic career) as well as circulation and recognition of their research. It is not only an opportunity to take their academic writing to the next level but also to share outcomes and findings across a research network. JAWS strongly believes in research as a living pragmatic entity – it should not languish unread in a file bending bedroom shelves, it is only through sharing and discussion that new ideas can be allowed to develop and grow.

JAWS does not set themes for our submissions, preferring to divine trends and thematics from what students deem current and relevant to them. The journal seeks critical reviews, self contained extracts from research blogs and diaries and reflective essays and papers with arguments and their hearts. JAWS also calls for work that explores the relationship between practice, writing and research including high quality photographs of artworks as part of practice led or based research and artist intervention regarding the image/text relationship.

All submissions must be accompanied by an abstract (maximum 100 words) and a list of keywords (approx. 5) to assist in guiding our peer reviewers.
For all inquiries please email p.e.@jawsjournal.com
