Scottish Journal of Performance

Issued: Mon, 26 Jun 2017 14:46:00 BST

The Scottish Journal of Performance is a peer-reviewed open access journal run by postgraduate students which promotes and stimulates discussion, development and dissemination of original research, focusing both on performance in Scotland (contemporary and historical) and / or wider aspects of performance presented by scholars and reflective practitioners based in Scotland.

SJOP invite contributions from a wide and diverse community of researchers, providing opportunities for both established and early career scholars to submit work. We encourage a wide range of research methods and approaches, including practice-led research and practice as research. Possible submission formats include audio and video recordings with commentary, practitioner reports, reflective journals and scholarly articles.

Performance in this context encompasses a wide range of arts and entertainment and takes as central themes dance, drama, film, music, and television. The research field of the Scottish Journal of Performance takes as a key focus the creation and execution of performance in various contexts. Examples include the role and value of performance, performance education, teaching and learning in performance, theory and practice, performance psychology, community performance, performance in society (class, economics, ethnicity, gender, religion), youth performance, performance aesthetics, research methods and methodologies. 

SJOP also offer opportunities for postgraduate research students to contribute to the journal as peer reviewers, review editors, and copy editors, and to gain valuable experience in academic publishing. Training and guidance are offered for these roles.
