The Journal for Research Cultures (JRC) is an international peer reviewed Open-Access (OA) journal published by the Research Institute for Arts and Technology. JRC is a platform for the communication and presentation of strategies of experimental, transdisciplinary and artistic research practices across epistemic cultures.

It extends the philosophy of openness with the intention to be accessible to a broad audience both within the academic framework and outside.»EXTERNAL SITE
