The journal’s mission is to publish critical and engaging work in musicology.

Image of notebook and keyboardThe Department of Music and Theater at Manhattan College is launching a new music journal, Sound Studies Review: An International Peer-Reviewed Music Journal. 

Housed at Manhattan College and co-edited by Mark A. Pottinger, Ph.D., professor of music and chair of the music and theater department, and Luca Lévi Sala, Ph.D., adjunct assistant professor of music at Manhattan College and a visiting scholar at New York University, Sound Studies Review will be published twice a year by Brepols Publishers, both online and in print. 

Along with Professors Pottinger and Sala, the journal is also managed by advanced students in Manhattan College’s Sound Studies program

The main mission of the journal is to publish critical and engaging work at the intersection between musicology, music theory, audio technology, acoustical research, and media studies. The journal thus provides a forum for experts in various fields to come together to discuss the sonic impact music and its technologies have had on the listening environment. The large editorial board is interdisciplinary and multinational, reflecting the composition of the research community the journal wishes to serve.

The journal welcomes submissions via the journal’s submission and peer-review website:

The first issue will be out in September 2022.
