Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts is a peer-reviewed journal published by CITAR, the Research Center of the School of the Arts at Portuguese Catholic Uni - versity, a division which strives to foster interdisciplinary and collaborative research and teaching between the sciences and the humanities. In addition to permitting for investigations of the issues of artistic conservation, the psychology of art, and modern digital culture, submissions which investigate the philosophy of art, musicology, performance studies, and musical perception are also welcomed. The Journal typically features editors' notes, five or more full-length articles, two or more reviews of other publications, and a section of important news for those interested in or affiliated with CITAR. The fourth issue (2012) is currently being assembled. The third issue (2011) contains articles devoted to phenomenological investigations of the process of "interactive creation" conducted by listeners of computerized music; the applications of "collective memory" of sounds, whether musical in the conventional sense or otherwise, for constructing "sound-based narratives" of their physical engagements with the public transit system of a particular community; and an innovative educational paradigm for utilizing music as a means of "intercultural education" in the elementary school classroom. The editorial board consists mostly of scholars affiliated with CITAR, though an international involvement is engaged in by scholars from the United Kingdom, Brazil, and Belgium as well. The journal is included in Ulrich's Directory of Periodicals, and although the contents are not indexed in sources like RILM, the journal is indexed by WorldCat, Mendeley, and Google Scholar. It is not yet included in the Directory of Online Access Journals.
