Call for papers: Open call

Editor: Koos Zwaan

Deadline: 31st August 2018

IASPM@Journal invites all IASPM members to submit papers for issue 2/2018 on any topic of research related to Popular Music Studies.

IASPM@Journal is the 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 on popular music of any genre, time period or geographic location. As part of an international network the journal aims to disseminate IASPM members’ research work 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. As our open access readership is diverse and interdisciplinary, we ask contributors to present ideas in forms accessible to sociologists, musicologists, music critics and practitioners.

The deadline for submissions is 31st August 2018.

We seek contributions no longer than 8,000 words, inclusive of abstract. We expect to publish this issue in December 2018, with final decisions on submissions sent out in autumn 2018.

In order to submit to IASPM@journal you must be an IASPM member and registered as an author on the site.
Further information regarding online submissions is available on our website:
