Ethnomusicology Ireland – Call for Submissions


ISSN   2009-4094


Ethnomusicology Ireland, the online journal of the Irish Committee of the International Council on Traditional Music, is currently inviting submissions for its second edition, due for publication in early 2012.

The scope of this journal is wide, representing the full diversity of ethnomusicology in Ireland and about Ireland. Many ethnomusicologists based in Irish institutions conduct their research in other parts of the world, whilst Irish scholars continue to interrogate their own nation’s heritage. The musical life of Ireland today is a diverse and cosmopolitan one, including that of immigrant communities and urban cultural-scenes.

Reflecting the diversity of its membership and interests, Ethnomusicology Ireland welcomes submissions from all relevant fields of scholarship, including research into dance studies, traditional music, popular and avant-garde genres.

Available on the website of the ICTM Ireland Society the journal is accessible in two versions. On-line essays are accompanied by a variety of media illustrations. PDF versions may be downloaded freely for printing purposes. We invite you to visit the site to familiarize yourself with this publication and to learn more about the Society’s activities.

Submissions should report on original research that has not been published elsewhere. All submissions are subject to review by two readers and subsequent revision at the request of the editor. In general, essays should be around 6,000 words in length, although exceptions may be made depending upon the character of particular contributions. Without precluding any particular mode of writing, all should conform to a high academic standard and include appropriate scholarly apparatus. We follow the so-called British style as found in the Oxford Style Manual in editing text, and the Harvard style Author-Date system for referencing. Authors are asked to submit their copy in electronic form in Microsoft Word with minimal formatting to the editor at Review of submissions is ongoing, but I would ask that you submit essays for publication this year by the 1st of November 2012.
