Formerly the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Arts Therapy (ANZJAT)
JoCAT is the biannual open access peer reviewed publication of the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association in association with the School of Social Sciences, Western Sydney University.
We now have a new website for JoCAT.
Each year The Journal of Creative Arts Therapies (JoCAT) awards two bursaries to support authors whose submissions show great potential but require some assistance to develop them to the journal’s standard for publication. The bursary is designed to provide mentorship/assistance to new authors, and is also an acknowledgement of the international positioning of the journal, and the need for greater inclusion of Indigenous, non-English speaking and other diverse voices.
The bursaries are funded by ANZACATA and recipients must be current members (in any ANZACATA membership category). Each bursary is valued up to AU$1,000 and is awarded at the editorial team’s discretion. It may take the form of: the cost of a JoCAT-assigned specialist copyeditor to work with the author with the editing process; or as a direct grant to the author to engage their own assistance with the editing process. The ANZACATA–JoCAT Author Support Bursary aims to provide mentorship to new authors.
