Nordic Journal of Arts, Culture and Health launches

Scandinavian University Press has published the first issue of an open access journal which provides a platform for publication and debate in the interdisciplinary field of arts and culture in healthcare and health promotion. The Nordic Journal of Arts, Culture and Health aims to

  • strengthen the arts and health field in the Nordic countries;
  • contribute to the growing knowledge in the field from a Nordic point of view;
  • document existing projects to make sure that valuable knowledge is maintained and shared; and
  • provide Nordic politicians and decision-makers with an evidence-base for policy-making.

The journal’s target audience is researchers and students in academic institutions, practitioners working with arts and culture in health and social care, education, government institutions, the media and other stakeholders from the broader public. It will publish articles in Danish, English, Norwegian, and Swedish.
