Fusion Journal is an international, open access online scholarly journal publishing refereed articles, creative works and other practice-led forms of output. Co-founded by the Faculty of Arts and Education, Charles Sturt University (Australia) and the College of Arts, University of Lincoln (UK).

Aims and Scope

Fusion Journal aims to:

  • provide a space where the blurring of different disciplinary, cultural, local, national and global ideas and creative practices can flourish;
  • increase scholarly appreciation of transdiscplinarity, transculturalism and transnationalism in the creative and cultural industries: arts, media and communication;
  • encourage early career researchers by offering the opportunity to work alongside established researchers in the editorial, peer reviewing and writing processes;
  • share the benefits of transnational collaboration and discussion of issues seen through the lens of fusion and hybridisation; and
  • foster critical awareness of the dialogic fusion produced between globalisation and regionalism.

Fusion Journal is also open to reviews and commissioned articles. Appearing twice a year, each issue is organised around a theme involving the fusion of two or more ideas, disciplines or cultures, and edited by a small team of guest editors whose research interests reflect the particular theme. The editorial teams include at least one early career researcher or Higher Degree Research student – refer to Submissions.
