  • Top-Rated LABS Abstracts 2015
  • Sheila Pinkel, LABS EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

The Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS) is an evolving, comprehensive database of thesis abstracts (PhD, 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 30 June each year. Abstract rankings are announced in the autumn. Authors of abstracts most highly ranked by the panel are 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.

The LABS Peer Review Panel for 2015–16 consisted of Yiannis Colakides, Tom Leeser, Soraya Murray, Iannis Zannos and Ionat Zurr.
