Virtual Creativity (VCR) is an academic peer-reviewed journal focusing on creativity in online virtual worlds and other related platforms where the virtual is examined as a central theme in contemporary media art practices and applied contexts.

One focus of the journal is an examination of creative activity in the metaverse – from art, design and architecture, to research and education, to play and entertainment.
