Focus and Scope

From 2015 the Norwegian dance magazine På Spissen/Dance Articulated publishes blind-reviewed research articles. The editorial board wishes to:

  • strengthen the possibilities for research publications within the dance field nationally and internationally
  • stimulate to increased visibility of research on the dance field
  • contribute to new networks of writers and readers of dance research

Up to one blind-reviewed research article per issue will be published from 2015. The articles will be published as an online open access publication on the website www.ps.norskedansekunstnere.no. An abstract of the article will be published in the paper version of På Spissen.
