Music Research Annual

Dear CSA members,

A new journal is out! I am writing to let you know about the publication of a new journal on whose board I and other coleagues serve — Music Research Annual. The journal is the first peer-reviewed, open access journal devoted to publishing review essays from the full range of academic disciplines that study music. Each article explores the current state of scholarship on a key topic within a discipline or interdisciplinary juncture and charts ways forward to new research. Led by a group of leading scholars, the journal seeks to forward academic inquiry into music and foster interdisciplinary dialog. MRA is published by the Research Centre for the Study of Music, Media, and Place at Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada). Below, you can find the Table of Contents for the first volume and the list of the editorial board members.

New articles are published on the journal website throughout the year. To keep up with the journal, you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, or sign up for email notifications on the journal’s landing page.

With best regards,

Samuel Furé Davis
