Share your Research on Music Studies

We invite you to contribute your music and music theory research to Popular Music and Society and Rock Music Studies.

Popular Music and Society seeks articles, book reviews, and audio reviews on popular music of any genre, time period, or geographic location. The journal is open to all scholarly orientations toward popular music, including (but not limited to) historical, theoretical, critical, sociological, and cultural approaches. The journal focuses especially on music as a manifestation of popular culture.

Evolving from Popular Music and Society, Rock Music Studies seeks articles, book and audio reviews, and opinion pieces on rock's interaction with other styles through disciplinary, methodological, and theoretical approaches. To best focus the scope of the journal, the editors limit the usually all-inclusive definition of rock to exclude other genres such as doo-wop, country, jazz, soul, and hip hop, but include roll and roll, rockabilly, blues rock, country rock, jazz rock, folk rock, hard rock, psychedelic rock, prog rock, metal, punk, alternative, and other subgenres of rock.
