1) Art and the Public Sphere
Art and the Public Sphere provides a new platform for academics, artists, curators, art historians and theorists whose working practices are broadly concerned with contemporary art’s relation to the public sphere. APS aims to establish a critical relationship to traditional and conventional debates about public art and art in the public sector and the public realm.
The double-blind peer-reviewed journal presents a crucial examination of contemporary art’s link to the public realm, offering an engaged and responsive forum in which to debate the newly emerging series of developments within contemporary thinking, society and international art practice.

2) Journal of Popular Television
Journal of Popular Television is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed journal designed to promote and encourage scholarship on all aspects of popular television, whether fictional or non-fictional, from docudramas and sports to news and comedy.
The journal is rooted in the belief that popular television continues to play a major cultural, political and social role, and thus seeks interdisciplinary contributions that contextualize programs, genres, personalities, and phenomena. The journal seeks to be equally responsive to contemporary developments in television production and within television criticism and theory, and to historical approaches and re-evaluation of canonical and non-canonical texts.
3) International Critical Thought
Taylor and Francis
International Critical Thought aims to cultivate, encourage and facilitate the development and dissemination of thinking and scholarship responding to the profound social, political, cultural and economic changes taking place in the world today. It aims:
To provide a multi-disciplinary forum for reflection on and insight to the major problems facing humanity (energy, environment, poverty, war, etc.), where living and breathing contemporary experiences can be processed into works of theoretical depth and scholarly rigor.
To build a global forum for dialogue among various social currents, as an attempt to better integrate different perspectives and reconcile different needs and interests.

4) Journal of Language and Discrimination
Equinox Publishing Ltd
Journal of Language and Discrimination - Discrimination is an important research topic in a large number of diverse but related fields, including linguistics, law, anthropology, sociology, and psychology. This complex, multidisciplinary research topic often has a strong focus and concern with language.
However, at the moment, theorists and practitioners publish their work in different journals, such as Gender and Language, Journal of Language and Sexuality, Disability Studies, and there is little in the way of intellectual crossover or multidisciplinary work.
We argue that the Journal of Language and Discrimination will appeal to those who are working on linguistic discrimination across a wide range of...

7) Antennae The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture
University of Strathclyde
Antennae The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture -This issue of Antennae and the next are part of a project informed by the exhibition Making Nature: How We See Animals curated by Honor Beddard at Wellcome Collection (London) in 2016-17.
This first installment, Making Nature, looks at the construction of nature as a cultural pursuit during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It focuses on issues of visibility and invisibility, both cultural and ecological, to critically appraise the methodological approaches that have defined the philosophies of the discipline. Technologies of visibility like taxidermy, dioramas, macro-photography, and illustration are here juxtaposed to highlight the complicity of art an...
