Journal of Embodied Research is the first fully indexed, peer reviewed, open access journal to focus specifically on the innovation and dissemination of embodied knowledge through the medium of video. With an editorial advisory board drawn from across the arts and humanities and beyond, it aims to pioneer the scholarly video article as a new form supporting development of diverse embodied research projects.

JER solicits video articles of between 10 and 20 minutes that document and share the results of research projects in which embodied practice is an essential part of the methodology. There are no annual deadlines and video articles are published on a rolling basis throughout the year. Informal inquiries to JER can be made by emailing the journal editor at any time. Formal submissions should be made electronically through this website. Please make sure to carefully read the guidelines first.

You can also take a look at Ben's recent "Open Insights" blog post on "Open Video and the Audiovisual Body" and the archived Twitter chat that followed it.

Open Library of Humanities is an academic-led, gold open-access publisher with no author-facing charges. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the platform covers its costs by payments from an international library consortium, rather than any kind of author fee.
