cfp: [IASPM Journal] Open Call for Papers


IASPM Journal is the Open-Access journal of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM), an organization established to promote inquiry, scholarship and analysis in the area of popular music. We publish articles and book reviews that consider popular music of any genre, historical period or geographic location. In addition to Special Issue CFPs, the journal maintains a space for ongoing scholarly work. We are now accepting article submissions, with the deadline by April 1st, 2020.

As part of an international network, the journal aims to disseminate IASPM members’ research that is local, transnational, global and/or international. English is the official language, but articles may also be submitted in the official language of any of its branches (adding an English abstract). Studies may use a range of research methodologies and critical approaches, including practice as research. Our Open-Access readership is diverse and interdisciplinary and so we ask contributors to present ideas in forms accessible to sociologists, musicologists, music critics and practitioners.

In order to submit to IASPM Journal you must be an IASPM member and registered as an author on the site. See the journal site for further information regarding Submissions. Click here for a copy of the Open CFP (in several languages) and Style Guide. All articles undergo a double-blind peer review.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.
