The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Arts Therapy (ANZJAT) is a peer-reviewed annual publication of the Australian and New Zealand Arts Therapy Association.
The journal provides a lively forum for academic research and practice-based papers with a focus on reflexivity and innovation in the field. It sets out to offer a useful resource of professionals and trainees, and to contribute to broader knowledge and understanding of the arts therapies. ANZJAT creates opportunities and encouragement for new and established authors within Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and internationally to publish their work. The journal promotes a diversity of modalities, philosophical orientations, voices and genres.
The journal publishes full-length papers on selected themes and original research; shorter papers – brief practice-based papers, case studies and discussion papers; interviews with contributors to the field of the arts therapy; reviews of books, videos, performances and exhibitions; and creative contributions such as creative writing, poetry, artworks, photo essays, illustrated stories, cartoons and documentation of performance works.

Becoming a peer reviewer for ANZJAT
ANZATA encourages professional members to participate in the reviewing process. Without it, the journal would not be produced to the high quality it has attained. ANZATA supports reviewers to claim CPD points, in recognition that reviewing arts therapy manuscripts develops that reviewer’s relevant professional skills, as well as contributing to the arts therapy profession.
If you are interested in becoming a peer reviewer, please email the journal coordinator.
