Journal History

Journal Kajian Seni is established since 2013 by Michael HB Raditya, Galih Suryadmaja, and M. Nur Salim. This journal is stimulated because of the lack of quantitative arts journals in Indonesia. It means the condition of Indonesian art literature should be more solid and inclusive. They talked with Dr. G.R. Lono Lastoro Simatupang as Head of Program Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies, Graduate School, UGM. Regarding the constellation, the head of the program agreed to make the new journal under the program. Jurnal Kajian Seni was published for the first time in 2014. This journal commits to keep publishing for sharing knowledge,  perspective, and novelty of Performing Arts and Visual Arts Studies.

Starting in 2022, Dr. M Bayu Tejo Sampurno became Editor-in Chief of the Jurnal Kajian Seni.

In Volume 8 (2), there are some additional reviewers.

Starting from Volume 9 (1) there will be a change of reference style from Chicago to APA 7th style. Then, the review form for the Jurnal Kajian Seni was also implemented starting from Volume 9 (1), so that all flows from submitting, reviewing, to publishing, use features from OJS.

Jurnal Kajian Seni maintains the originality of the article, so with great compulsion, due to a report (accompanied by strong and valid evidence) that the article is the result of plagiarism, we revoke the publication of articles in Vol 3, No 1 (2016) entitled: "Fungsi Puak Poi pada Upacara Paisin dalam Budaya Masyarakat Tionghoa di Kota Medan". We apologize for all the inconvenience.

Starting Vol.9 No.1, the first number (annually) of the Jurnal Kajian Seni will be published in October. So, the Jurnal Kajian Seni will be published twice a year, in April (for Vol.XX, No.2) and October (for  Vol.XX, No.1).
