Published on Thursday, January 31, 2019


La revue Ethnomusicology Review du département d'ethnomusicologie de l'université de Californie à Los Angeles (UCLA) lance un appel à contributions pour son prochain numéro. Cet appel est ouvert aux chercheurs et aux doctorants. Il s'agira d'un numéro varia.



Ethnomusicology Review is now accepting submissions for Volume 22, scheduled for publication in Fall 2019. Started as Pacific Review of Ethnomusicology (PRE) in 1984, Ethnomusicology Review is an annual peer-reviewed journal managed by UCLA graduate students and a faculty advisory board. Ethnomusicology Review is a peer-reviewed online Open Access journal. We publish interdisciplinary music research in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Indonesian, and other languages on a case-by-case basis. Our online format allows authors to rethink how they use media to present their argument and data, moving beyond the constraints of print journals. We encourage submissions that make use of video, audio, color photographs, and interactive media. 

Articles are original essays of no more than 8000 words on topics related to musical practice, and will be subject to an extensive review process prior to publication. They are expected to extend current theoretical and/or methodological approaches to the study of music, broadly conceived, and may be written from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including ethnomusicology, musicology, anthropology, sociology and cultural studies. Articles explicitely engaging with contemporary ethnomusicological scholarship are particularly encouraged. Essays in languages other than English will be considered for publication, provided that qualified reviewers are available, but authors are encouraged to include an abstract written in English.

Submission Guidelines

The submission deadline is February 26, 2019.

Peer Review Process for Submissions

Submissions will be first reviewed by an editor who will decide whether they are of sufficient quality to proceed with the review process. The editors reserve the right to immediately reject or request immediate revisions of submissions that do not adhere to the requirements listed above. Manuscripts will be read by two or three referees, one familiar with the author’s topic or area and another who can provide an “outside” perspective. Referees will consist of, at minimum, one Advisory Board member and one Editorial Board member. See the current issue for a list of active Advisory and Editorial board members.

Ethnomusicology Review operates on an annual publication schedule with the submission deadline for Fall publication usually coming in late January or early February. The time between submission and publication allows for full peer review and any revisions, and is generally a much faster turnaround than other peer-reviewed journals. The editors will notify authors about the status of their submission via email within 60 days after its reception. If the submission has been accepted for publication, we will send preliminary comments for any suggested revisions. In the interest of time, we ask that authors return their edited text, audio and video examples, and digital images electronically within 30 days of notification of acceptance. Some authors whose pieces are not initially accepted for publication will be given the suggestion to "revise and resubmit." This suggestion is literal and we will review resubmissions after revisions or improvements are made.

Authors will receive a link to the copyedited version of their piece for final proofreading before it goes “live” on the journal's website.
