Documenta (ISSN 0771-8640) is an important forum for the study of theater in the Low Countries. It is a journal that accommodates in-depth, scholarly contributions on all aspects of theater, as well as essays and critical reflections.

Since 2015, Documenta has been published by S:PAM (Studies in Performing Arts & Media) of the Department of Theater Studies at Ghent University. The editorial board is composed of theater scholars from various universities and colleges. Chief editors are Christel Stalpaert and Bram Van Oostveldt.
