The aim of El oído pensante is to promote the discussion of theoretical, methodological and epistemological dilemmas faced by different kinds of music research. Unpublished articles in Spanish, Portuguese and English dealing with ethnomusicology, anthropology, sociology of music, popular music studies, musicology, and cultural studies, among other disciplines, are accepted. Papers should be original and those which produce criticism of theoretical paradigms, methodology, transdisciplinarity, knowledge validation, research ideologies, representation resources, narrative strategies, relationships during the fieldwork experience, social and political research significance, the researcher’s perceptive and conceptual baggage, new technologies and their ways of spreading and sharing knowledge, etc., will be welcome. Since the intention of the journal is to promote critical thought aimed to dismantle usual concepts and to open new approaches, papers restricted to analyzing particular cases will not be accepted. However, it is expected that authors bring some cases into the text in order to support their main ideas. Reviews are also accepted. All articles will undergo a peer blind review process.
