What Scholarship Looks Like

Project Summary

What Scholarship Looks Like is an ongoing research project by Jessica Barness and Amy Papaelias. We explore the visual design of academic journals across disciplines and the impacts of journal design on academic culture. How does the design of an academic journal affect the perceived integrity of its content? What does published scholarly research look like, why does it look this way, and what might it look like in the future? Through visual analysis, personal interviews, and survey data, this project investigates the design of academic journals as a means to speculate on how new forms of scholarly research will necessitate new forms of publication. Our published research and presentations are collected here.
