InSEA Publications: Different Thinking

InSEA Publications is an academic publisher, established in 2016, that publishes books and articles about visual art education and education through art (we also publish conference proceedings for InSEA congresses and symposia). Our publications seek to promote good practice and cutting-edge research in the field and our publications are normally electronic and free access to our international membership at the Members' Bookshelf area on the website.  

We promote a wide range of research and praxis from a diverse set of educational contexts from community-based art to more formal university or high school praxis in addition to arts-based educational research.  

InSEA publications is a member of the CrossREF network and offers the possibility to publish entire books (normally as pdfs) If you are interested in publishing an article, please refer to our journals IJETA or IMAG.  All submissions are evaluated by a double-blind peer review committee.  For larger publications, such as edited books, we work with editors to establish an academic review or editorial board.  InSEA publications world closely with authors on the academic content and layout of the publication, from acceptance of the proposal to the final proofs.  Ensuring a high-quality publication is our key aim in every case.  

Books and e-journals published by InSEA are available from the InSEA website and are free to access for InSEA members.   Published authors may reprint or distribute their own articles, free of charge, but we request that the original publication is credited.

NOTES: As our strapline suggests, InSEA Publications is committed to ‘different thinking’ in art education research and praxis. We seek proposals that are original and advance knowledge and practice in learning through art.  For example, we will consider edited books, visual essays and monographs from individuals or groups. Authors must be, or agree to become, members of InSEA

In addition, InSEA Publications aims to make all forms of research and systematic enquiry as widely available as possible, for example through the InSEA web pages as pdfs.
