A resource guide for curatorial studies.

What is a journal?

This is the forum where researchers and scholars first report their findings and ideas. Theories and ideas circulating in contemporary visual culture will be discussed in journal articles. Journals are ongoing publications also referred to as serials, periodicals, magazines or newspapers.

Some journals are peer-reviewed or 'refereed', this means articles published in these journals have been critically evaluated by specialists or experts within academic and / or industry fields.
