CAET Statement

CAET is the premier source in the world intended for artists, educators, and therapists who use and integrate creative and expressive arts in their work. The journal’s focus is the discussion of perspectives, theory-based applications, and practical results on issues concerning West and East—particularly China and its neighboring cultures. The journal fosters dialogue between East and West, and world cultures and supports cross-disciplinary cooperation and research between creative arts (creative writing, dance/movement, drama, film, music, and visual arts) and education, therapy, psychology, medicine, and other related fields. CAET was founded in 2015 by  and was led by two editors-in-chief, , University Professor at Lesley University, and  of the Academic College for the Arts and Society until 2021. In 2023 new CAET co-editors will be  and .

CAET has an editorial board consisting of 50 leading international expressive arts experts. In the Fall of 2018, CAET became an Open Access (OA) Journal, the first of its kind in the various communities that it serves. Online publication significantly expands accessibility and incorporates color, imagery, and video to more effectively present the artistic expressions which inform every aspect of the publication. The inaugural OA issue (4.1) features . CAET subscriptions are also available in hard copy. In 2021, CAET became the official publication of IACAET (The International Association of Creative Arts in Education and Therapy), making it far and broad-reaching for a global community. Find more information about IACAET on .

CAET invites research articles, case reports, program descriptions, position papers, interviews, artwork, and conference reports relevant to the field. We also welcome books for review consideration. Manuscripts are subject to a peer-review process before being accepted and published. Contributions are to be in English and will be published with bilingual abstracts in English and Chinese. CAET publishes two issues per year in both print and online versions and is distributed worldwide and collected by the National Library of China, Royal Dutch National Library, and major universities in China. 

The Journal’s East-West perspective is dedicated to exploring, presenting, and understanding the necessary interdependence of all world communities — current, past, and future — as originally envisioned by the SìXiàng(四象), the four creatures who stand at the cardinal directions of the universe and affirm China’s historic emphasis on living in attunement with nature. Contributions regarding how artistic expressions, in their infinite uniqueness, relate to this shared humanity are welcomed from all regions of the world.
The Journal encourages scholarly, engaging, and art-based submissions in varied media (visual art, film and video, dance, drama, poetry and literature, music, integrated arts, and all possible modes of artistic expression) presented in ways that are accessible to the public.
