Focus and Scope

Computational creativity is the art, science, philosophy and engineering of computational systems which, by taking on particular responsibilities, exhibit behaviours that unbiased observers would deem to be creative. As a field of research, this area is thriving, with progress in formalising what it means for software to be creative, along with many exciting and valuable applications of creative software in the sciences, the arts, literature, gaming and elsewhere.

The Journal of Computational Creativity seeks to promote excellent scientific research and engineering of computational creative systems, as well as scholarly discussion of the philosophy surrounding such systems, independent of application.

Papers are invited covering original research, scholarly surveys, and substantial position arguments in the field of computational creativity.

Publication Frequency

The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publicly available.

Special collections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of the normal issue, but also within a separate collection page.

Occasionally the editors will commission surveys from particular experts or expert teams.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Authors of articles published remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use, reproduce, and share the article according to the Creative Commons license agreement.

Archiving Policy

The journal will be archived by the Association for Computational Creativity.



The Journal of Computational Creativity was established by the general assembly of the Association for Computational Creativity in 2017. It began operating as a legal entity in 2018, with a formal launch in 2019.

The Journal exists to disseminate reports of high-quality research in the field of Computational Creativity, interpreted broadly.

The Journal has a strong commitment to diversity, reflected in its editorial board, and it welcomes submissions from all domains in which computational creativity is applied.
