Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS)
annual Submission Deadlines (on-going): 30 June
The Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS), under the direction of Leonardo International Co-Editor Sheila Pinkel, is an evolving, comprehensive database of thesis abstracts (Ph.D., Masters and MFA) on topics at the intersections between art, science and technology. This English-language database is hosted by Pomona College (Claremont, CA). In addition to being published in the database, a selection of abstracts chosen by a peer review panel for their special relevance will be published annually in Leonardo journal and on the Leonardo On-Line website.
The deadline for receipt of abstracts for review by the LABS peer review panel is June 30 each year. Abstract rankings are announced in the autumn. Authors of abstracts most highly ranked by the panel will also be invited to submit an article for publication consideration in Leonardo.
The aim of LABS is not to duplicate existing thesis databases but rather to give visibility to interdisciplinary work, which is often hard to retrieve from existing databases.
