[in]Transition listedAbout [in]Transition - [in]Transition – a collaboration between MediaCommons and the Society for Cinema and Media Studies’ official publication, Cinema Journal – is the first peer-reviewed academic journal of videographic film and moving image studies. Practitioners of these forms (which include, inter alia, the ‘video essay’, ‘audiovisual essay’, and ‘visual essay’ formats) explore the ways in which digital technologies afford a new mode of carrying out and presenting film and moving image research. The full range of digital technologies now enables film and media scholars to write using the very materials that constitute their objects of study: moving images and sounds. Though a number of other outstanding sites present videographic work, none has yet received the disciplinary validation that is accorded to written scholarship. In large part, the strictures of written academic discourse pose a challenge for this nascent form of multi-media ‘writing’. [in]Transition aims to address this issue. This journal is designed not only as a means to present selected videographic work, but to create a context for understanding it – and validating it – as a new mode of scholarly writing for the discipline of cinema and media studies and related fields. This goal will be achieved through editorial curating of exemplary videographic works, through critical analysis and appreciation, pre-publication peer review and Open Peer Commentary. For the first four issues of [in]Transition, the co-editors and invited members of the editorial board will select existing videographic works to present as exemplary of the form. These issues will select and organize works thematically, around the various formal features that have already begun to take shape in videographic practice. Each selected work will be accompanied by a short critical essay that explains and justifies the work in two ways: for its creative use of multi-media tools; and for the way it creates a ‘knowledge effect’ – that is, for its impact as scholarship. The goal of these inaugural issues is to set the terms of evaluation for the future of the journal: to present selected work, and contextualize it for acceptance and validation by our discipline. [in]Transition is committed to a vigorous open peer commentary process. Registered users of MediaCommons are invited to comment on and engage in dialogue with other readers and creators about published work. This commentary is a crucial component of the disciplinary dialogue that must take place if videographic works are to be accepted as scholarship. This dialogue can serve to still further define the formal criteria we expect from distinguished videographic work. After the first four issues, [in]Transition will proceed to a more conventional process, with scholar producers submitting videographic works for peer review and publication. Submitted works are reviewed by an Associate Editors group which approves publication. Works do not need to be exclusive – that is, videographic works that have circulated elsewhere can be considered for publication in [in]Transition. Similarly, works by producers who are non-academics are welcome as well, but these will be evaluated according to the same standards of creativity and scholarship as those by academics. When a work is selected for publication, a member of the Editorial Board will pen a short critical commentary that is designed to initiate and focus the post-publication online discussion. Upon publication of a new issue, the open peer commentary process begins immediately. We invite readers to register with MediaCommons and engage with us in this stimulating and important dialogue concerning the future of the videographic critical work as a scholarly form.

Axon: Creative Explorations Performing Arts and Creative Writing 1901 Art Theory and Criticism
Axon: Creative Explorations is an international peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the characteristics of creativity and the creative process. It is published twice a year (usually in March and September) and encourages research into and discussion of the broad domain of creativity, including:
- the methods and techniques of artists and other creative professionals
- approaches to creative-led research and the theorisation of creative practice
- the ways in which creative works are made and function
- poetics and poetry, and
- the cultural contexts and theoretical frameworks informing creative practice.
The journal is named for the axon, long extensions from the body of neurons which conduct electrical signals to synapses, thus being crucial to transmission within the nervous system. Though each axon is microscopic, when bundled together they play an important part in providing the energy, the action and the communication that make us human. We intend that Axon will operate in much the same way: providing points of connection and transmission across the creative community, providing the sparks of energy we need to keep making our work, and providing a space in which creative thought can be disseminated.

IM Journal Film, Television and Digital Media
2001 Communication and Media Studies
IM: Interactive Media is a refereed interdisciplinary electronic journal administered by the National Academy of Screen and Sound (Australia) and conceived as an interactive forum for researchers in screen and screen production. As an interdisciplinary screen journal IM sets no theoretical boundaries other than the boundaries found conveniently in the acronym of IM itself: IM. I AM. EYE AM. INTERACTIVE MEDIA. IM ’s founding theme is that, as viewing subjects, we always act as an interactive medium, as much as we are a perceiving , inscribing, recording, transforming, transmuting and a transmitting medium. The fact that the image and the eye are in place and interacting from the earliest point of human development and before words, provides the starting point for this journal. IM is particularly interested in contributions that explore intentional engagements with objects in real or imagined space, and that theorise ocular space in active, graphic and dynamic terms, be it as a landscape, screen scape, cyber space, subject space, object space, neural space, urban space, virtual space, time-space, animated space, jump–cut space, to name just a few.
InFormation - Nordic Journal of Art and Researchhttp://www.artandresearch.infonot listedInFormation is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal aimed at disseminating knowledge and experience from research and development projects based on artistic practice and reflection, art education, art theory, cultural theory and related areas.

Contexts can range from education to other institutional and social framings of art. The journal welcomes contributions in Scandinavian languages and English.
Journal of Artistic Research Visual Arts and Crafts
We invite submissions to JAR from all fields and disciplines in which artistic research may be relevant, including areas that may not usually be conceived of as 'artistic'. Although the journal has emerged as a result of demand in the academic field, JAR welcomes submissions from practitioners with or without academic affiliations. The key problem for many involved in artistic research is ‘writing’ and its authority. In response to this, JAR introduces a new format for publishing artistic research, the ‘exposition’, a multi-media document that can combine and interlink text, image, film and audio material on one or more scrollable pages. Contributors compose expositions using an online editing space, the Research Catalogue, and we welcome a variety of approaches to the form, scale, number and balance of contents. That said, submissions to JAR must meet one key requirement; they must expose artistic practice as research. This process goes beyond simply documenting, describing or writing about work. It engages actively with the questions and claims about knowledge within practice. Text-centred expositions are perfectly acceptable, but JAR offers the possibility to challenge traditional modes of (critical) writing that use works as illustration and text as explanation. In this sense, ‘writing’ here is not understood as synonymous with text. All submissions to the journal need to be made through the Research Catalogue, and created using the online editing space. Submissions should be in English and there is no word limit (as contributors can expose research with more, less or no text). Instead we request that a reader/viewer of the exposition should be able to grasp the core of the research in the period of an hour of investigation. If interested in submitting, the first step is to register for an account, which is free of charge. Login details are sent by email and once received offer access to the editing space. Once logged in, an online tutorial helps to create pages, upload text, image, film and sound and combine them to make expositions. These are easily viewed as a web page and users can invite others to look at them, and collaborate with them along the way. Before embarking on a submission to the journal you should contact us by Email to see if your research is suitable. Completed expositions can be easily submitted to the journal with just two clicks from the profile page. From there they are passed to the editorial board, and if accepted, on to peer review by a minimum of three reviewers. The Peer-Reviewing Guide gives more details of how these are conducted and how submissions are assessed. We accept and review submissions as they come in, and currently publish two issues a year, in Spring and Autumn. Contact Barnaby Drabble, our managing editor, should you have any further questions.

If your work is accepted for publication, you will be asked to submit the License to Publishagreement along with a processing fee of $99.95. Why is this fee necessary? Please click the link General Guidelines and read the section at the end of the page titled Why We Charge a Processing Fee. Unlike some traditional and online journals, we do not charge a submission fee for reviewing a manuscript for publication consideration. The following guidelines describe our current requirements. However, we are also interested in ongoing experimentation with different modes and formats. If you have a good idea that does not fit into our current modes and formats, please let us know.

NMEDIAC Film, Television and Digital Media
2001 Communication and Media Studies
2002 Cultural Studies
NMEDIAC has adopted the mission of publishing peer-reviewed papers and audiovisual pieces which contextualize encoding/decoding environments and the discourses, ideologies, and human experiences/uses of new media apparatuses. In relation to previous work, NMEDIAC will provide an intellectual canvas where the cultural spaces and experiences of new media are theorized and rigorously explored within both global and local contingencies of the present and past. In particular, we will publish articles that take critial/cultural approaches to analyzing new media.
In addition to publishing scholarly articles that address the theme of new media & culture, NMEDIAC will also solicit and publish audiovisual new media art and presentations. Some of these pieces will incorporate scholarly analysis, but others will 'stand alone' as expressions that contextualize and comment on general or specific themes and issues that new media technologies bring us up against -- such as new media as experienced culture.
Participations: journal of audience and reception studies Sociology 1902 Film, Television And Digital Media 2002 Cultural StudiesThe purpose of Participations has always been, and continues to be, to provide a focal point – a coming-together-place – for all kinds of work under the general and generously understood heading of "audience and reception studies". The Journal aims to include and embrace work across all fields of media and culture, from a wide range of theoretical and methodological bases, giving space to a full range of questions and debates. But – and it is an important qualification – coming together is not possible without recognising that audience and reception research has some distinctive, and even problematic histories. In talking to each other, in sharing our research and learning from each other, certain requirements are generated.

Fundamental to this expansion is a re-imagining of what constitutes a work of scholarship or art. To that end, Sensate accepts and encourages non-traditional submissions such as audiovisual ethnographic research, multimedia mash-ups, experiments in media archaeology, time-based media, participatory media projects, or digitized collections of archival media, artifacts, or maps. Sensate accepts submissions of finished projects, proposals, and reviews of works (monographs, films, exhibitions, etc). As an issueless journal, Sensate avoids the rigid structures of chronology and provides readers with the opportunity to explore the content in networked and associative ways, offering a rich, intuitive experience. Users can sort the content by clicking on the media icons, selecting one of our Special Collections (curated by Guest Editors), or through advanced search queries.
