Bath Spa University is at the forefront of research into creative practice across many forms and disciplines. It seeks to be a renowned centre for excellence in the development of creative research, bringing its well-established and expanded practice-led research provision and concentration of expertise in fields such as media, music, creative writing and the visual arts. 


The University is home to Artswork Media, Bath Spa’s student-led media production company, the unique MediaWall – an architectural scale portrait format gallery, consisting of ten 55” panels and standing 4 meters wide and 7.5 meters tall – as well as the flagship MIX DIGITAL conference, an innovative forum for the discussion and exploration of writing and technology.


Building on the University’s excellence in practice-based and creative research, the International Journal of Creative Media Research is shaped by the collaborative organisation of a number of the University’s Research Centres. It is founded and hosted by The Centre for Media Research, which brings together scholars and practitioners from across Film, Media, Creative Computing and Publishing, and operates around three clusters: Digital Ecologies, Film & Social Context, and Play & Multiplatform. It benefits from partnered association with the university-wide Centre for Cultural and Creative Industries and its Issues in Creative Practice Research, which e-links academic research, creative practice and industry to develop commercial and cultural opportunities that benefit a broad community of interests. 


We are interested in receiving submissions from researchers and postgraduate students who want to have a voice in shaping the future of creative media-based research.
