The Centre for Dance Research based Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices has been accepted for indexing on SCOPUS.

The international refereed journal is published twice a year by Intellect and is edited by Professor Sarah Whatley and an editorial team at Coventry University and the University of Stirling, and supported by an international editorial board. Published since 2009 the JDSP is for scholars and practitioners whose research interests focus on the relationship between dance and somatic practices, and the influence that this body of practice exerts on the wider performing arts.

Scopus, a bibliographic database containing abstracts and citations for academic journal articles, provided the following feedback on the journal:

"This is a leading journal in its field and strong in every aspect. If fully merits inclusion in SCOPUS."

The JDSP team are currently accepting articles for the next open call issue to be published in 2015. Find out more about the Journal and the upcoming 3rd International Dance & Somatic Practices Conference on the website (
