The Journal on the Art of Record Production (JARP) is an international online peer-reviewed journal promoting the interdisciplinary study of record production. The term ‘record production’ is to be interpreted in the broadest sense as the production of recorded music. JARP was founded in 2006 by Dr. Simon Zagorski-Thomas and Katia Isakoff. The guest editor for the first issue was Professor Simon Frith, for the second, Professor Albin Zak. Four issues were subsequently published online. In 2010 a new editorial board was formed and joint Editors-in-Chief appointed.

JARP is a publication of the Association for the Study of the Art of Record Production (ASARP). The journal publishes peer reviewed research papers with contributions from world-renowned industry professionals. JARP reviews books, publishes articles and interviews, which are reviewed and moderated by the editorial group.
