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, they are normally electronic and open access on this 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 and school praxis in addition to arts-based educational research.  Please note the term ‘art’ should be taken to include art, craft and design. Whilst we recognise the interdisciplinary nature of much art research and praxis, we do not publish books or articles that focus mainly on music, drama or dance.

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 using a double-blind peer review process.  For larger publications, such as edited books or series, we can work with editors to establish an academic review or editorial board.  InSEA publications work 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.
