Welcome to a new version of JMM!

About the New Structure

In order to facilitate a smoother editing and publishing process, JMM: The Journal of Music and Meaning has adopted a blog structure - or, rather, a structure of blogs: Each new issue will constitute a blog of its own, such that JMM vol.x will have the URL jmmx.musicandmeaning.net. New issues are announced on this page (jmm.musicandmeaning.net)

New Guidelines for Submission

Guidelines for SubmissionPosted by Søren R. Frimodt-Møller Dec 15, 2010 19:30:53
Articles, essays and research reports must be sent to submission@musicandmeaning.net

If you want to review a book for us, please contact us first at info@musicandmeaning.net before sending us anything.

As opposed to the original format of JMM, the new blog-based issues will only feature articles in pdf-format. From JMM10 and onwards, we are making the entire formatting of a paper the full responsibility of the author(s). Should your material be accepted for publication, it will be your responsibility to ensure that the finished, (possibly) revised article is camera-ready.

When you submit material for JMM, you must

1) Send two versions: One as a Microsoft Word document (or compatible format) facilitating easy proofreading, and one as a pdf-document, including all figures and illustrations, and, if possible, any audio or video examples you may utilize. Should you have problems integrating audio and video in your pdf-document, we will be able to help you with this, if you send us the relevant files separately.

If you are submitting a paper for peer-review, please anonymize both versions of your document, such that the identities of yourself and your co-authors (if any) are not stated anywhere.

2) Adhere to the general style of JMM's articles. See a sample paper here: pdf-version Microsoft Word version

3) Write in English of a publishable quality. For non-native speakers of English, we require that submitted articles (whether for peer-review or intended for our essay or research report sections) have been proofread by a native speaker of English with familiarity of academic discourse. Except for material written by U.K. residents, we only accept texts that follow APA formatting.

4) Include a short abstract (approx. 1500 characters) for use in the blog post regarding your article. You must also include a short biographical note on the author(s), not exceeding 1000 characters per author. The former requirement does not apply to book reviews.

Papers submitted for peer-review will be evaluated by two anonymous referees either from our Editorial Board or from other researchers in our network.
