This double-blind peer-reviewed journal provides artists, researchers, practitioners, healthcare professionals, educators, therapists and policymakers opportunities to particularly report and reflect upon art-based research practices that distinctly emphasise art as the mode of inquiry including art as the evidence of that inquiry. The Journal of Applied Arts and Health (JAAH) discourages research studies that are predominantly non-artistic in nature. JAAH provides a vehicle for high quality research and forward-thinking scholarly activity embracing multifaceted understandings of aesthetic modes of engagement. Contributors include eminent and experienced workers and scholars in the field, but JAAH strongly encourages cutting-edge contemporary and experimental work from emerging practitioners. JAAH provides a prominent platform for artistic research in addressing the art as evidence base in applied arts and health. The journal embraces contributions of an international dimension.

The journal is supported by the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA).

The journal invites contributions from artists, researchers, healthcare professionals, educators, therapists, programme administrators and others throughout the world seeking to broaden understanding of art as the mode of inquiry in the application of artistic expression to all types to well-being, health and healthcare practices. Research articles for peer review should seek to emphasise art as the mode of inquiry when applying artistic expression to health practices and be grounded in the relevant literature. JAAH encourages the use of all art forms, including multi-modal practices, as research in providing such evidence and discourages research studies that are predominantly non-artistic in nature. JAAH prefers the use of the collective term ‘art-based’ research (instead of the siloing ‘arts-based’) and discourages the use of the term ‘intervention’ to describe research processes involving the creation of art. With respect to the latter, we recommend language that avoids the quasi scientific approach that the term ‘intervention’ currently indicates. Most importantly, we encourage authors to have the art processes speak more predominantly in their submissions (e.g. illustrations of various forms of artistic expression versus tables with numbers). JAAH focuses on artistic research and our goal is to promote confidence in art AS the evidence. In other words, our readers want to know about the artwork that was done and the participants’ experience in their own words (be those verbal or non-verbally expressed in art). JAAH publishes:

  • Peer-reviewed articles
  • Peer-reviewed ‘Notes from the field’ discussions
  • Visual essays
  • Interviews
  • In Memoria
  • Book reviews
  • Conference reports

Submissions should be sent to:
jaah.submissions@yahoo.com by 1 October for issue 1, 1 February for issue 2 and 1 June for issue 3 of each volume.


To propose a book review or conference report, contact the Reviews Editor
at jaah.reviews@yahoo.com


Before submitting, authors should carefully review and follow the notes for contributors found on our website. Submissions that do not follow our formatting will be returned to the authors. The peer review process takes approximately 10-16 weeks, depending on a number of factors. The given deadlines are for articles that are accepted or accepted with minor changes. Articles which need major revision and/or a second round of reviews will require additional time and will be considered for a later issue.

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications. Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
