Welcome to the inaugural issue of the /International Journal of Creative Media Research,/ Bath Spa University's new interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed and open access academic journal devoted to pushing forward the approaches to and possibilities for publishing creative and practice-based research.

Championing critical rigour and creative reflection, the journal specialises in capturing the emerging tools, approaches and methods of practice-based and practice-led research. It publishes original screen-based, sound-based, time-based and experiential forms of creative media research, spanning works of film, music, media art, creative and digital writing, curation practice, multiplatform and ludic artefacts that contribute to fields across Media and Game Studies, Communication and Cultural Studies, Art and Design, Music, Creative Writing, Drama, Dance, Performing Arts, Film and Screen Studies, or Education.

In creating a platform that is more reflective of the kinds of creative, interactive, multi-strand research artefacts that are now being produced across different disciplines around the world, the /International Journal of Creative Media Research/ provides authors with flexibility in how their creative and practice-based research is published, spanning submission categories of Single-Piece Explorations, Multi-Piece Portfolios, Practice Discoveries, and Issues in Creative Practice Research. It allows authors to enhance the academic dimension of their creative practice, producing research statements and 'route-maps' that give greater space for the discussion of research questions, methods, and contribution to original knowledge. We also encourage the inclusion of more types of media, be it video, audio, blog, podcast, or image.

Our inaugural issue showcases the work of the journal’s editors and select members of the international editorial board, with topics spanning postdigital media, digital writing, fiction machines, multi-platform education, compositional crystallography, games curatorial practice, observational documentary, digital image sensors, and political app development. Altogether, the work in this issue aims to capture new insights into ways of engaging with creative and practice-based research, spanning fields of Media, Creative Writing, Dance, Computing, Art, History, and Education.
