IAFOR Journal of Arts & Humanities

The IAFOR Journal of Arts & Humanities publishes original articles on all aspects of the arts and humanities; that is to say, we are interested in works that study and document the varied ways in which people methodise and endeavour to decipher the human experience. In seeking to direct the journal’s critical perspectives toward innovative and pioneering terrain, we welcome articles that take a diagnostic approach to the assumptions that have long predisposed the study of literature, philosophy, art, history, religion, music and language.

The editorial team aim to bring meaningful, influential work to an international community of scholars as well as to a worldwide audience. As such, we only publish papers with substantial scholarly underpinnings that will appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike and will advance our understanding of the arts and humanities. Given the journal’s wide scope, the research submitted must rise above the limitations of narrow, confined case studies. Where such studies are submitted, they must offer insights into issues of general interest to scholars.

The journal Editor welcomes submissions related to the arts and humanities from academics, practitioners and professionals from within the field.

Please note that papers already submitted to or published in IAFOR Conference Proceedings are not accepted for publication in any of IAFOR’s journals.

Indexed in: DOAJ, MIAR, Google Scholar, SHERPA/RoMEO, TROVE and Humanities Source. DOIs are assigned to each published issue and article via Crossref.


IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies

The IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies solicits scholarship in the broad areas of culture, social development, the arts, digital communities, philosophy and similar.

While much of the journal's focus rests on Asia, it encourages contributions from all across the globe, thereby establishing links between intercultural and transcultural phenomena and analysing them. Asia is a continent constantly evolving within a restive world and it is the aim of this journal to provide challenging and incisive commentary to accompany this process.

We envisage the IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies to be an open space for developing topics, threads and nodes of cultural understanding. The journal recognises that cultural studies is necessarily hybrid in nature and that even the establishment of common research fields (itself a highly contested exercise) will do little to discipline it. This, however, does not relieve cultural studies of the necessary reflection upon its own histories and present status quo. It is hoped that some of these discussions will take place in the virtual pages of this journal and that those theoretical interventions stimulate and interact with further research. As cultures are becoming increasingly mediated, ample space will be provided for those interventions highlighting the relationship between (media) technology and culture.

The journal Editor welcomes submissions related to cultural studies from academics, practitioners and professionals within the field. The articles are submitted through the submission portal and must conform to the journal Author guidelines. All papers are reviewed equally according to standard peer review processes, regardless of whether or not the authors have attended a related IAFOR conference.

Please note that papers already submitted to or published in IAFOR Conference Proceedings are not accepted for publication in any of IAFOR’s journals.

IAFOR Journal of Media, Communication & Film

The IAFOR Journal of Media, Communication & Film publishes scholarship exploring the relationship between society, film and media including new and digital media. IJMCF publishes articles adapted from presentations given at The Asian Conference on Media & Mass Communication and The Asian Conference on Film & Documentary, but articles from other sources will also be considered. IJMCF is published online and made freely available.

IJMCF publishes articles based on findings from original research and/or theoretical concerns, interviews (with academics and filmmakers), and book and film reviews relating to media, mass communication, film and documentary and pertaining to one or more of the following specialisations: new and digital media; Asian media and globalisation; trends in Asian media and film; media’s social responsibility; communication ethics; social media usage; issues related to gender and ethnicity; politics and aesthetics; media, society and religion.

The journal’s focus is on Asia and Asian cultures’ interaction and interrelation with the wider world. While some journal issues will privilege scholarship particular to specific countries, cultures, ethnicities or demographics, other editions will be organised according to themes designated by the editors and will not necessarily relate to any particular national situation. The journal will endeavour, in particular, to give a voice to scholars considering hitherto unexamined aspects of contemporary media and visual culture, with the aim of providing new perspectives and keeping abreast of socio-political changes.

Submissions should be original, previously unpublished papers which are not under consideration for publication in any other journal.

Please note that papers already submitted to or published in IAFOR Conference Proceedings are not accepted for publication in any of IAFOR’s journals.

All articles are submitted through the submission portal and must conform to the journal submission guidelines. All papers are reviewed equally according to standard peer review processes, regardless of whether or not the authors have attended a related IAFOR conference.
