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.
