About this Journal

The Journal of Performance Magic focuses on a multidisciplinary and contemporary approach to the field . Covering the influence, legacy and future of performance magic on wider performing arts practice and other diverse academic disciplines. In recent years the academic study of performance magic has made exciting creative links within emerging disciplines; such links include the cognitive sciences, architectural design, and emerging technologies. The Journal of Performance Magic seeks to strengthen these links as well as encourage reflection on areas of performance magic not already covered in publication and develop new perspectives on areas already heavily researched.

We operate on a rolling-publication basis, releasing articles during the course of a volume. [currently Volume 8]

We welcome the submission of scholarly articles, interviews, practice accounts, book and performance reviews. We also offer a section of the Journal - [edges] for creative, non-standard approaches to magic performance and research.
