About VIS

VIS is published as a collaborative effort by Stockholm University of the Arts (SKH) and the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme (part of Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills). The purpose of the journal is to be a primary source of knowledge for anyone who wants to learn about, and immerse themselves in, the artistic research emanating from the Nordic region, as well as being a platform for international research that places a similar emphasis upon reflection. The goal is to use the journal as a framework to strengthen Nordic cooperation for artistic research. With this journal, we hope to contribute to insight, knowledge and awareness of methods, ethics and context in artistic processes.

VIS holds an open call for every issue. Up to seven expositions are selected by the Editorial Committee for entry into the collaborative peer-review process. All the expositions featured in the journal are made in Research Catalogue.

VIS is chaired by a Steering Committee consisting of three members from Stockholm University of the Arts (SKH), and three members from The Norwegian Artistic Research Programme (part of Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills).

Editorial Committee of VIS, 2022

An Editorial Committee, consisting of seven members, is responsible for content, for the peer-review process and for issuing calls for each new issue. The Committee has adopted an approach to peer-reviewing in which, rather than the process being blind, a dialogue is established between author(s) and reviewer.

Anna Lindal, Violinist, researcher at SKH
Magnus Bärtås, Vice-Rector of Research, University of Arts, Crafts and Design
