In celebration of the 20th year anniversary of the IMPACT Printmaking Conference, the Centre for Print Research (CFPR) at the University of the West of England is very pleased to announce the launch of the
IMPACT Printmaking Journal     ISSN 2732-5490   

IMPACT stands for ‘International Multi-disciplinary Printmaking: Artists, Concepts and Techniques’, which takes the form of a conference that is run every other year. IMPACT 11 ran virtually in April 2021 in Hong Kong, and IMPACT 12 will be hosted online and in person in September 2022 in Bristol, UK.

The IMPACT Printmaking Journal is an open-access peer-reviewed academic publication. There is no fee to submit and no fee to read the articles. All articles published from Autumn 2020 onwards are published under a creative commons licence CC BY 4.0. For more information on this licence please see here 

IMPACT Printmaking Journal supports scholarly and critical debate in the field of print: advancing technological knowledge, contextualizing print, talking about the poetry and language of print, and maintaining a showcase for print practitioners. 

Novel contributions from academics, scientists, writers, philosophers, students, graduates and independent artists alike are warmly welcomed. All contributions will be peer-reviewed by a panel of peer-reviewers. ​

The journal will be published twice a year.
