Eight years ago, this journal was just an idea, seven years ago that idea was growing, and six years ago, Art/Resaerch International published its fist issue. Editors-in-Chief Dr. Diane Conrad and Dr. Patricia Leavy, along with Managing Editor Dr. Jaime Fiddler have been pleased to nurture that kernel of an idea into a journal and to see it grow. It is hard to believe we have now seen the journal through eleven issues!
We are thrilled to be passing the leadership torch to an amazing team from Mount Saint Vincent University in Canada. A warm welcome to our new Editor-in-Chief Dr. Ardra Cole, who will be working with Managing Editor Christina Flemming. Dr. Cole has extensive editorial experience, and her arts-based work has inspired this journal in many ways throughout the years. Therefore, we feel confident that the journal will be in excellent hands moving forward. Thank you and congratulations to Dr. Cole!
We would also like to extend our gratitude to all those who have been moved to work with us over the years: our editorial team members, guest editors, our authors, and reviewers. It has been a great honour to bring this journal into existence and to see it flourish, and to support the publication of so many fantastic art/research articles. We look forward to a continued association with the journal as board members and to the many, many art/research articles yet to come.Read more about Celebrating our 11th issue and our new leadership team!
