Journal of Embodied Research | Open Call for Video Articles

Extra Label
Submissions accepted continuously

JER invites the submission of video articles on a rolling basis. These can focus on any topic related to embodied practice, embodied knowledge, or embodied research.

Previous articles have examined actor training, contemporary choreography, screendance, phenomenology, eco-performance, disability, pregnancy, song, and migration. JER video articles should be between 15 and 20 minutes in duration. No material (such as an explanatory note) is permitted outside the video itself. Formal drafts must be submitted via the JER website, while informal enquiries can be sent to the Editor.

There is no formal style guide for JER video articles, as the video article form is understood to be still in development. Please see the indicative submission guidelines and resource links on the journal website. All published JER video articles go through a process of single-anonymous peer review, receiving feedback from at least two anonymous reviewers plus the journal Editor. This process is at the heart of JER’s mission to advance video as a medium for embodied research.

Journal of Embodied Research is the first peer-reviewed, open access, academic journal to focus specifically on the innovation and dissemination of embodied knowledge through the medium of video. With an editorial advisory board drawn from across the arts and humanities, it aims to pioneer the scholarly video article as a new form supporting diverse embodied research projects.
