The Journal of Arts Writing by Students is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles from the post-graduate student community, both at MA and Ph.D level, and it's a platform where practice-based arts research is presented critically.

Originally founded at Chelsea School of Art, it’s the first academic arts journal entirely dedicated to current students' and recent alumni’s work.

JAWS publishes academic writing, practice-based research articles, exhibitions and book reviews, interviews and opinion articles, as well as visual essays that incorporate and maintain the criticality needed to engage with the contemporary contexts that push the field of art forward. It works to showcase new lines of discourse and topical arts research taking place in art institutions through the practice of writing and publishing. 

Arts writing is currently at the epicenter of any art studying, and therefore is more important than ever. JAWS stimulates the articulation of students’ research through our network of peers, and functions as an exercise in publishing, seeking to promote early career researchers across the academic community. We aim to be inclusive and diverse by pushing the boundaries of what art writing can be, while upholding the quality expected in academia by challenging our contributors to maintain a critical approach. Our articles are broad in range, which reflects the diversity of the research happening across the world, fostering a spirit of debate and ways for the practice of writing to accommodate new ideas.

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.
