Submissions are now being accepted for the inaugural issues of the International Journal of Music in Early Childhood (IJMEC) which will be published (commencing in June, 2019) by Intellect in partnership with the Early Childhood Music & Movement Association.

IJMEC is an interdisciplinary forum that is directed at the empirical study of music in early childhood, or pre-birth to age 8. The journal welcomes research-based contributions from fields such as music education, music therapy, community music, psychology, ethnomusicology, anthropology, sociology, history, philosophy, childhood studies, social work, and others concerned with diverse aspects relating to music in the lives of young children. IJMEC is double-blind peer- reviewed and publishes original research reports, best practice papers, case studies of specific programs, critical literature reviews, and book/media reviews.

The International Journal of Music in Early Childhood aims to:

  • improve the lives of young children through music by providing a source of professional development to those committed to this cause;
  • encourage dialogue regarding the conceptualisation of childhood and music's role in the life of the young child;
  • promote inter- and transdisciplinary ideas around music in early childhood;
  • disseminate models of practice and the theories and research underpinning those practices;
  • reveal and reflect upon views and practices in early childhood music from different regions and cultures.

Potential article topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Young children's learning and development, in and through music
  • Music in daycares, preschools and other educational settings serving young children
  • Musical socialization in families, peer groups, and the community at large
  • Musical parenting, family musical experiences involving young children
  • Intersections between music learning in early childhood and the other arts
  • Pedagogical theories and tools for practitioners and researchers working musically with young children
  • Young children's everyday musical experiences in different cultures
  • Music, technology and media in young children's lives
  • Early childhood music education policy
  • Music therapy and young children

Article submissions should be in accordance with Intellect’s style guide and should not exceed 8,000 words.
