Journal Overview

The Colour Turn is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to promote and advance interdisciplinary research into
Colour Studies. As its name figuratively and literally suggests, the aim of the interdisciplinary and international
journal Colour Turn is to turn over a new leaf in colour research. The journal invites high-quality research
articles and papers that implement innovative approaches—including scientific methodologies, historical reconstruction,

The journal promises a collaborative effort of high-profile editorial and review expertise from all around the
world in the field of colour research.
