The Dovetail Journal

... is a cross-disciplinary fully peer-reviewed journal. The journal values intersections between the critical and creative aspects of literary study, creative arts, and media; between the arts and other select disciplines as per issue; and between postgraduate students, academics, creative practitioners and alumni in multiple institutions across the UK, Europe and beyond. Hence the name of the journal, 'The Dovetail' indicates an interlocking between creative and critical practice across multiple disciplines.

The Dovetail values supporting national and international research across universities in the UK, and universities within the European or wider international academic community, in a spirit of good will and cooperation.

 The Dovetail journal aims to represent all periods, genres and approaches to literature, texts in the wider sense, and fields within creative arts, joining critical and creative research related to various subjects or areas of topical and thematic investigation.

Support for translation between the Welsh language and English, with regards to our contributors, may be provided by experts within Bangor University whenever available.

The newer editions of the journal aim to expand in scope and reach, to include critical and creative practice research across a range of areas within the creative arts including film, performance based industries and new media. Multiple universities from the UK, Europe and at an international level, are invited to participate and contribute to the exciting cross-disciplinary research at The Dovetail.

Currently papers and work are published in response to an annual call for papers only. Submissions are open to postgraduates, postgraduate alumni (MA and above including doctoral or post-doctoral staff).
