Ethnomusicology Review: New Issue, New Name, Same Mission!

December 23, 2011 - 3:00pm

Now in its 27th year, the Pacific Review of Ethnomusicology has been renamed and reconfigured as the Ethnomusicology Review, a "multimodal" (Shorter, 2011) Open Access journal.

Begun in 1984 with just a few editors and a typewriter, EMR now maintains an extensive editorial board and publishes interdisciplinary music research in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and other languages on a case-by-case basis.

Moving beyond the constraints of print journals, our online format allows authors to rethink how they use media to present their argument and data. We encourage submissions that make use of video, audio, color photographs, and interactive media. Our journal is enhanced behind the scenes by adhering to OAI metadata protocols and being indexed worldwide by major scholarly indexing services. EMR is a journal for the 21st century!

Our annual journal publication is now accompanied by research and fieldwork blogs from around the world...Ethnomusicology Review is an Open Access journal generously funded by GSA Publications at UCLA.
