JAWS: Journal of Arts Writing by Students is the only academic arts journal run by and dedicated to the work of MA and Ph.D. students. JAWS was conceived as an opportunity for students to gain experience of the publishing and peer-review process, and champions a developmental role within this. No theme or topic is set for each issue, as this emerges from the submissions received.

Capturing contemporary themes and trends across the arts, JAWS publishes historical and theoretical articles alongside practice-based work; promoting the autodidactic attitude and inherent curiosity that is required for post graduate, career or personal research development with or without practice. The journal invites submissions from across all disciplines of art and design and accepts submissions from external disciplines where the focus is upon visual culture. The content reflects the journal's role as a space that allows for a variety of discussion, and in which research can be made accessible. 

JAWS employs a double-blind peer-review process, and maintains an international network of student peer reviewers and editors. A unique and complimentary set of guidance is used for unconventional submissions (of practice i.e. practice-based, practice as research), and this guidance evolves each issue through the peer review and editing process.

For full submission guidelines, and more detailed information about the peer review process and guidance used, please see the JAWS website.

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 for and 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 it's 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.
