Virtual Creativity has been accepted for inclusion in Publication Forum Finland

New index announcement for the Journal Virtual Creativity!

Virtual Creativity has been accepted for inclusion in Publication Forum Finland,(http://www.julkaisufoorumi.fi/), a leading index in Finland, with connections in institutions across Northern Europe.

Virtual Creativity (VCR) is an academic peer-reviewed journal focusing on creativity in online virtual worlds and other related platforms where the virtual is examined as a central theme in contemporary media art practices and applied contexts. Pieces exploring the subject of digital creativity are sought from the broad perspective of Art, Science and Technology, in what is a widespread field of discourse. One focus of the journal is an examination of creative activity in the metaverse – from art, design and architecture, to research and education, to play and entertainment. Additionally, Virtual Creativity seeks to engage with ways in which the virtual reflects upon the implications of the physical.
