Open until 29th March 2024

MUSIC.OLOGY.ECA is a student-run journal dedicated to showcasing interdisciplinary music research across Edinburgh University. We welcome submissions from students across any degree and any discipline at Edinburgh University

We are looking for articles (up to 3000 words), audiovisual essays, and audio recordings (up to 15 minutes) that demonstrate contemporary relevance across a variety of areas within music research today.

We welcome submissions from any discipline of music-related research, including but not limited to: 

* Theory and analysis
* Culture, society, philosophy and politics
* Performance, composition, and instrument research
* Psychology and education
* Music on screen (film/TV/video games, etc.)
* Sound design and acoustics
* Reviews for scores, performances, CDs/DVDs, and books 

We are offering the opportunity for work to be peer-reviewed by ECA/Reid School of Music staff, which will provide authors with an insight into the academic publishing process. We encourage a stylistic tone and analysis of content that is accessible to readers who may have a less specialist knowledge within music-related disciplines.
