Open CFP: Research Work at IASPM

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, book reviews and PhD abstracts, on popular music of any genre, time period or geographic location. In addition to Special Issue CFPs, the journal maintains a space for ongoing scholarly work.

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 idiom 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. Because our open access readership is diverse and interdisciplinary, we ask our contributors to present ideas in a way that a mix of sociologists, musicologists, music critics and practitioners can understand each other.

In order to submit to IASPM@journal you must be an IASPM member, and register as Author on this site.
