Aims & Scope

Community music is a broad term, with meanings that often reflect regional, national and/or cultural contexts. Metaphors of boundaries and borders convey that community music exists at the intersection of several scholarly interests, including (but not limited to) music education, music activism, applied ethnomusicology and music therapy. The key concept of 'community' is what helps distinguish community music as a field.

The International Journal of Community Music publishes research articles, conceptual discussions, timely reviews, project reports and Special Issues. Work should be original in nature, and contribute to the ongoing advancement of the theory and practice of community music. Authors are encouraged to examine past issues of the journal and other salient resources (e.g., Oxford Handbook of Community Music) in order to engage with and extend current dialogues and debates within this scholarly community. 

In addition to scholarly contributions, the journal gives voice to the development and advancement of professional practice. Contributions from recognized practitioners in the field, including freelance musicians, composers, arts and leisure workers, youth and social workers and policy-makers are welcomed.
