Focus and Scope
Body, Space & Technology (BST) is a leading journal of contemporary artistic practice and research and joined the OLH platform in Summer 2017. Since it launched in 2000, BST has built a strong reputation for scholarly quality and innovation, as well as fostering a global academic community around its published content. BST publishes research into artistic practice that engages with digital technologies, particularly as these relate to bodily interaction and creativity, and in multi-disciplinary perspectives. The journal is led by an Editorial Board of international experts.
At BST we are responsive to new artistic developments guided by artists’ own reflections on events and the directions they choose to take. The Journal welcomes international readership and contributions from artists and academics from all over the world. We remain committed to being an open access publication and support innovation and experimentation in the Arts, in whatever form it takes or processes from which it arises. We invite readers to be stimulated by the Journal and hope it encourages submissions that will surprise and perhaps even lead to unexpected instances of research and creativity.
The journal is published in 1 - 2 issues annually
Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Authors of published articles remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use, reproduce, and share the article according to a Creative Commons license agreement.
One of the benefits of open access publishing lies in others being able to re-use material. We believe that the greatest societal good is possible when people are free to re-distribute scholarship and to create derivative works. This is why we recommend the CC BY 4.0 license, under which others may re-use your work, on condition that they cite you.
If you wish to use a more restrictive license, which we do not advise, please indicate your choice in the submission form as a note to the editor when prompted, stating your preference from CC BY-SA, CC BY-NC, CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC-SA, CC BY-NC-ND. SA ('sharealike') means that others must impose the same license on their derivatives. NC ('non-commercial') means that the work may only be used for non-commercial purposes. Please note that this may mean that those within the university cannot re-use your work for teaching. ND ('no-derivatives') means that others may not modify your work. This could prevent larger portions from being included in course packs or for those in the digital humanities to use your work.
