Call For Papers

ournal of Science and Technology of the Arts (SCOPUS-indexed)
Open Call for audiovisual essay submissions (always open) [No payment
from the authors will be required.]

JSTA aims to create a conceptual discussion around the audiovisual
essay, not only as a creative process but also as a pedagogical and
academic tool, to generate concepts and criteria for evaluation and
scientific consideration.

Therefore, JSTA is open to submissions of original audiovisual essays
made with films, excerpts and other moving images. Works can have up to
15 minutes and should provide original insights in areas such as film
and audiovisual studies; media studies; contemporary art; social
sciences. Works submitted should not have been proposed to any other
academic publication, despite the possibility of dissemination in other
circuits. The call will not be restricted to academic practitioners but
the process of evaluation will follow its procedures.

Each audiovisual essay should be accompanied by a research statement by
the author (up to 1500 words), articulating research aims and the
process of work. Each work will be submitted to an open peer-review
process, in which audiovisual essay and author’s statement will be
published alongside the reviewers’ critical evaluations of the work.
After the submission acceptance, the author will be asked to provide a
printable version of the audiovisual essay (selecting around 20 frames
of the original work).

Submissions should have:
- a video file (MP4, with H264 codec), no longer than 15 minutes and
with less than 500 Mb,
- a word document with the research statement (up to 1500 words).

Possible working topics:
