The Malaysian Journal of Performing and Visual Arts is a fully peer-reviewed research journal that focuses on the Asian performing and visual arts. It is a forum for scholars in the fields of Asian music, dance, theatre, and visual arts. Published by the Faculty of Creative Arts, Universiti Malaya, it appears once a year in December, and will be an indexed periodical covered by a number of scientific indexing services. As an online e-journal, readers can obtain hardcopy on demand with a projected global dissemination through the open access policy on the University of Malaya e-journal website. We invite submissions of original articles from the entire scope of Asian performing and visual arts fields. Please see our website for further information. The journal encompasses articles, books audio/video reviews, and notes on current research by scholars in the related arts fields. We further extend its scope to include practice-led research and exegesis, offering a critical platform for the academic exploration of practical work in the field. This approach encourages submissions that are accompanied by links to digital archives of artworks, performances, or any form of media that supports scholarly research. Therefore, we also invite contributions that employ and document artistic practices as a method of inquiry and that articulate the process and findings through exegesis, enriching the traditional academic narrative.  It is published in English and is issued annually in December in online format with hard copy on demand. This journal is double-blind reviewed. For submission, see Information for Authors and Submission Rules.
