A peer-reviewed publication that results from a commitment of the Research Center for Science and Technology of the Arts (CITAR) to promote knowledge, research and artworks in the field of the Arts. The Journal provides a distinctive forum for anyone interested in artistic research and practised-based research.

JSTA is indexed by Scopus and the Emerging Sources Citation Index da Web of Science.
CITAR is committed to the development of artistic research informed by practices and concepts inscribed in human-driven impulses of our post-digital era, the challenges and possibilities of the digital arts and humanities, in tandem with the complexity of analogue art forms and technologies. Pressing issues in the digital and traditional arts and humanities have stimulated our commitment to inquiries and goals articulated in three focus-based areas: Sound and New Media Art, Cinema and Visual Arts, and Heritage and Conservation-Restoration. The Center presently hosts 51 PhD integrated members, 60 doctoral students, and 41 collaborators.
