O A R: The Oxford Artistic and Practiced Based Research Platform

O A R is an online journal and research platform that engages with new and experimental ways of participating in knowledge production, specifically through practice based research. Through its publishing activities, O A R seeks to challenge the bound temporality of the standard academic publication, and to stimulate a culture of timely response. Themed issues of the online journal appear twice-yearly, and are composed of commissioned contributions and curated submissions through an open call. O A R is funded by the Oxford University IT Innovation Seed Fund.
