I am happy to announce that the International Society for Music Information Retrieval launched the Transactions of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval, the open access journal of the ISMIR society at Ubiquity press. I am serving as Editor-in-Chief, together with Simon Dixon and Anja Volk.
TISMIR publishes novel scientific research in the field of music information retrieval (MIR).
We welcome submissions from a wide range of disciplines: computer science, musicology, cognitive science, library & information science and electrical engineering.
We currently accept submissions.
View our submission guidelines for more information.
I have been collaborating for a while now on the edition of a Special Issue at IEEE Multimedia Magazine, which gathers state-of-the-art research on multimedia methods and technologies aimed at enriching music performance, production and consumption.
I have had the change to co-edit this issue with my colleagues Cynthia Liem (TU Delft, The Netherlands) and George Tzanetakis (University of Victoria, Canada), and I am very happy with the outcomes.
It is the second time I act as a co-editor for a journal (the first one was at JNMR and related to computational ethnomusicology) and I learnt a lot from the process. Editors have to asure good submissions, good reviews and recommendations, keeping the coherence and theme that we wanted to give as a message to our community. Yes: access, distribution and experiences in music are changing with new technologies. I am very happy with the outcomes! Check our editorial paper here, and the full issue here.
And I love the design!
