Beyond the Traditional Publishing Life Cycle

By Christiane Wagner, Editor-in-Chief

To achieve Art Style Magazine’s goal of being part of the best indexers, besides considering a periodicity of at least two years, it is necessary to meet some other requirements. Among the required actions is to have the magazine well-protected and linked to the best repositories. Thus, we are thinking about the future, protecting and promoting the Art Style Magazine’s publications by using Zenodo and Core repositories. We have just done this with our first edition. The whole process is very detailed, but we will soon conclude this important lesson in all Art Style Magazine editions.

With Zenodo, “researchers can receive credit by making the research results citable, through OpenAIRE integrating them into existing reporting lines to funding agencies like the European Commission. Citation information is also passed to DataCite and onto scholarly aggregators.” Art Style Magazine is also deposited in CORE — Open Access for the Humanities and Commons Open Repository Exchange, which is stored in the Columbia University Libraries’ long-term digital preservation storage system.

Art Style Magazine aims to improve how research production quality is evaluated through publications, being a signatory to the main agreements that pursue practices related to research articles published in peer-reviewed journals, which can and should be extended to other products, such as datasets, because they are relevant research results.

Furthermore, the aim is to evaluate the research on its merits. We are also committed to ensuring that our journal will be well-indexed and are working toward this. It is only a matter of time, considering that the best indexing takes, on average, two years. The main indexers and institutions we have subscribed our Art Style Magazine to are as follows: Web of Science, Clarivate Analytics, DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journal), ERIH Plus (European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences), Google Scholar Metrics, Latindex, and, most importantly, to become a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). COPE is committed to educating and supporting editors, publishers, and those involved in publication ethics to move the publishing culture towards one where ethical practices become a regular part of it. We expect the support and contribution of all those involved and passionate about research and publications, especially in our area. We wish you all the best that Art Style Magazine can offer.

Author: Art Style | Art & Culture International Magazine

Art Style | Art & Culture International Magazine is an online, quarterly magazine that aims to bundle cultural diversity. All values of cultures are shown in their varieties of art. Beyond the importance of the medium, form, and context in which art takes its characteristics, we also consider the significance of socio-cultural and market influence. Thus, there are different forms of visual expression and perception through the media and environment. The images relate to the cultural changes and their time-space significance—the spirit of the time. Hence, it is not only about the image itself and its description but rather its effects on culture, in which reciprocity is involved. For example, a variety of visual narratives—like movies, TV shows, videos, performances, media, digital arts, visual technologies and video game as part of the video’s story, communications design, and also, drawing, painting, photography, dance, theater, literature, sculpture, architecture and design—are discussed in their visual significance as well as in synchronization with music in daily interactions. Moreover, this magazine handles images and sounds concerning the meaning in culture due to the influence of ideologies, trends, or functions for informational purposes as forms of communication beyond the significance of art and its issues related to the socio-cultural and political context. However, the significance of art and all kinds of aesthetic experiences represent a transformation for our nature as human beings.
