AIMS & SCOPE
An interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed and open access academic journal devoted to pushing forward the approaches to and possibilities for publishing creative media-based research.
Championing critical rigour and creative reflection, the International Journal of Creative
Media Research specialises in capturing the emerging tools, approaches and methods of
practice-based and practice-led research. The journal publishes original screen-based,
sound-based, time-based and experiential forms of creative media research, spanning works
of film, music, media art, creative and digital writing, curation practice, multi-platform and
ludic artefacts that contribute to fields across Media and Game Studies, Communication and
Cultural Studies, Art and Design, Music, Creative Writing, Drama, Dance, Performing Arts,
Film and Screen Studies, or Education.
International in scope, the journal’s editorial board includes artists, scholars, writers, musicians, performers, technologists, designers, filmmakers and educators, and benefits from a network of partner institutions formed via the Global Academy of Liberal Arts at Bath Spa University.
Submission types span four categories: Single-Piece Explorations; Multi-Piece Portfolios; Practice Discoveries; and Issues in Creative Practice Research. See Author Guidelines for more details.
Based at Bath Spa University, the journal is founded and hosted by The Centre for Media Research, and work in association with The Centre for Cultural and Creative Industries, a university-wide Centre that provides a conduit for the creative and cultural industries to engage with our research.
We publish a mix of open call issues based on any topic relevant to the journal’s scope and themed special issues, usually developed and managed by a guest editor, which aims to contribute new research into creative media practice to one of The Centre for Media Research’s three areas of interdisciplinary specialism: Digital Ecologies, Film & Social Context, or Play & Multiplatform.
