HUB is a peer-reviewed and open-access research journal for reporting on arts, design, and performing arts twice a year.
It has an international scope with a particular emphasis on practitioner methodologies and the educational impact of artistic research.
HUB is based on the premise that complex phenomena are far more likely to be understood if a variety of angles are brought to bear on them.
The journal welcomes contributions of researchers and practitioners working within, but not limited to, the following research areas:
Artistic Practice, Politics and Social Engagement
Artistic Production, Processes and Technological Studies
Arts Education, Critique and Society
Computation, Hybrid Practices and Design
Drawing Across Disciplines
Interculturality and Society
HUB accepts the following types of articles:
HUB encourages proposals using visual, graphic, sound or any other media, including original artwork that embodies artistic research in its multiple forms.
HUB is published by i2ADS – Research Institute in Art, Design and Society (University of Porto, Portugal) with the support of the Foundation for Science and Technology.
HUB is published twice a year.
The Spring issue is based on a call for varia papers (open-themed articles).
The Autumn issue is theme based. Themes are proposed by the editorial team or a guest editor. They are based on the potential to prompt new debates on art, design and society, and to engage different fields of artistic research.
We welcome submissions in Portuguese or English. Accepted submissions are published with the title, abstract and keywords in English.
HUB is hosted on the Research Catalogue platform, an international artistic research infrastructure that enables multimedia publication.
