MusPed:Research publishes research on topics within music pedagogy. In particular, specific music pedagogical topics and questions will be considered, as well as topics in the intersection between disciplines, subject areas and research areas that are usually kept apart in educational and research contexts, yet are intertwined elements in music educational practices in schools, higher education and society at large. The series aims to contribute to new knowledge across alignments and traditions, and to inspire dialogue between researchers and educators from different cultures within the broad landscape of music education.

MusPed:Research has an open submission policy and welcomes ideas for scholarly anthologies and monographs on music pedagogical issues. Proposals will be assessed by the series’ Editorial Advisory Board, and one of the Board’s members can be asked to act as co-editor on accepted publications. All publications will be subject to double blind peer review. For further practical information, please see the series’ Requirements and Standards for Project Descriptions and Manuscript Preparation.

All publications in the MusPed:Research series are published with the CC BY licence.
