Researchers in Fine Arts regularly maintain that the criteria for quality assessment of scientific production employed by the national rating agencies (CNEAI and ANECA) do not conform to the dissemination habits of existing research in this area. Complaints are directed mainly towards the different forms of creative production, but also towards the regular contributions that are carried by the journals. In this paper we analyze the journals used by the teaching and research staff of fourteen Spanish faculties of Fine Arts between 1977 and 2010. The identification of 1,355 professors and researchers active in these areas led to the retrieval of their articles published in journals indexed by the databases Dialnet, ISOC and Art Bibliographies Modern. The results obtained have been contrasted with the evidence relating to the quality offered by the platform "Spanish Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities" (RESH). We conclude by confirming the low rate of publication in regular journals by researchers in Fine Arts; the thematic dispersion through publication in related areas such as history, literature or philosophy; and the mismatch between the journals most used by teachers of fine arts and those that meet a greater number of quality criteria. ©2013 CSIC.
