Submissions are being accepted for the International Journal of Music in Early Childhood (IJMEC), published 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 publishes original research reports, critical literature reviews, book/media reviews, best practice reports (designated as 'Spotlight on Practice' articles) and interest articles (manuscripts underpinned by research that explore theories or issues) after a fully anonymous review process.

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; and
  • 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; and
  • music therapy and young children.

Article submissions should be in accordance with Intellect’s style guide and should not exceed 8,000 words. Quality colour images and scores are published when relevant; therefore, you are invited to submit potential images along with your article. IJMEC welcomes authors who do not have English as a first language and will provide editing support. Finally, if you are interested in submitting a review or have questions, please email the editor, Diana Dansereau (drd1@bu.edu).
