interdisciplinary and international journal in the open field of colour studies

The Colour Turn is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to promote and advance interdisciplinary research into Colour Studies.


Journal Overview

The Colour Turn is a peer-reviewed jour­nal that seeks to pro­mote and advance inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research into Colour Stud­ies. As its name fig­u­ra­tive­ly and lit­er­al­ly sug­gests, the aim of the inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and inter­na­tion­al jour­nal Colour Turn is to turn over a new leaf in colour research. The jour­nal invites high-qual­i­ty research arti­cles and papers that imple­ment inno­v­a­tive approaches—including sci­en­tif­ic method­olo­gies, his­tor­i­cal recon­struc­tion, col­lec­tion and close read­ing of old and new mate­ri­als, empir­i­cal exper­i­ments, dig­i­tal human­i­ties, ana­lyt­i­cal, com­par­a­tive and crit­i­cal reviews—that open up new hori­zons in colour sci­ences and colour stud­ies. The jour­nal promis­es a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort of high-pro­file edi­to­r­i­al and review exper­tise from all around the world in the field of colour research.
