Yale Institute of Sacred Music:
“Yale Journal of Music & Religion (YJMR)”
Editor: Robin Leaver
Deadline: September 1, 2015
The Yale Journal of Music & Religion (YJMR) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal of interdisciplinary scholarship providing a forum for the study of sacred music in all of its ritual, artistic, and cultural contexts. Twice yearly, YJMR publishes scholarship on religious music of all traditions across a range of methodologies, encouraging the study of the full array of musical, ritual, literary, and other artistic forms that co-constitute the worlds of beliefs and practices.
Under the direction of Professor Robin Leaver (Yale University and Queen’s University, Belfast), the journal is published by Yale Institute of Sacred Music, an interdisciplinary graduate center educating leaders who foster, explore, and study engagement with the sacred through music, worship, and the arts in Christian communities, diverse religious traditions, and public life.
As a new journal, YJMR will continue to be under evaluation by major indexes such as Thomson-Reuters and SCOPUS for two years before acceptance into their arts and humanities branches. YJMR is well positioned for entry to the open access directories DOAJ and OASPA, and all the journal’s articles are indexed in major library catalogs and databases: OCLC Worldcat, ProQuest’s Summon, Ex Libris’s Primo, and EBSCO Discovery. The entire run of the journal is and will continue to be preserved in the two leading preservation archives, CLOCKSS and Portico, guaranteeing persistent long-term access. Each paper published in YJMR has a digital object identifier (DOI).
YJMR is inviting papers for:
- Vol. 2, No. 1. The submission deadline is September 1, 2015. Interested contributors should submit their manuscripts/papers via the journal website: ism.yale.edu/yjmr
- Vol. 2, No. 2. This will be a themed issue on The Sounds of Processions, exploring the role of music in religious processions. More information is forthcoming on the website.
