Publishing at Theatre Academy

The Theatre Academy publishes works for three different purposes: to disseminate research results, to produce learning materials, and to increase awareness and promote a basic knowledge about the arts for public education purposes.

The general publication policy of the Theatre Academy is formulated by its Publications Committee. The Committee also administrates the Academy´s ISBN numbers (Standard Book Numbers).

The committee has an open call for proposals for new titles for the academy's publication series. Proposals can be submitted twice a year. Funding is available for works which contribute to the educational or research activities of the Theatre Academy or introduce a new idea for discussion in the field of the performing arts. The open calls are published in the Uniarts Helsinki publications blog.

The Performing arts research centre´s (Tutke) Publication council can also allocate financial support for publications that are published in the Acta Scenica and Nivel publication series. Persons that are planning for a publication in one of those series should send in an application to the Theatre Academy´s Publications committee in its open call for publication proposals, and at the same time also ask for a statement about the publication proposal from the Tutke Publication council. If the proposal is supported in the statement, and the Theatre Academy´s Publication committee allocates financial support for the proposal, then the Tutke Publication council commits to partial financing for the proposal.
