|About JPR: The Journal of Poetics Research is a peer-reviewed, international, online and print journal of research in a wide range of disciplines concerned with the theory and practice of literary discourse in culture, media and the arts broadly conceived, including poetry, prose, journalism, drama, cinema, radio and television, as well as with literary, historical, social, institutional and psychological modes of narrative, interrogation and contention. An energetic international role is an essential part of the magazine’s identity.
JPR publishes research articles, occasional special themed issues, book reviews, news items, interviews, and links to raw research material either in its online repository or off-site. Poems and books of poetry are not part of JPR's remit, though anthologies may be reviewed.
Online material is added piece by piece, and issues are published in book form when complete, twice a year, generally in April and September. JPR reviews books and reports on conferences related to poetics, and maintains connections with other institutions worldwide. JPR was founded by John Tranter in 2011, and has the support of the Department of English at the University of Sydney.
