GMS Journal of Arts Therapies – Journal of Art-, Music-, Dance-, Drama- and Poetry-Therapy publishes scientific articles in and across the disciplines of art, music, dance, drama, and poetry therapy. It is the official organ of the German Scientific Association for Arts Therapies (Wissenschaftlichen Fachgesellschaft für Künstlerische Therapien, WFKT), founded in 2017, and is published regularly as an unrestricted open access journal. Published articles are thus available worldwide to all interested parties without any additional costs.
Submissions may include research articles, review articles, project reports, short communications, as well as discussion papers and comments on creative arts therapies, arts in medicine and psychotherapy, as well as arts and health. Submissions employing the entire spectrum of methodologies in the arts therapies are welcome, from evidence-based medicine and quantitative research, through research on therapeutic factors and clinical mechanisms, observational studies, qualitative research, case studies, and artistic inquiry to arts-based research. We advocate participatory and ethically reflected research principles.
Manuscripts submitted to GMS Journal of Arts Therapies are accepted in German and English. An English abstract is required for all publications.
