Focus and Scope

Intonations, an online peer-reviewed graduate music journal, was launched by the Department of Music at the University of Alberta in February 2019. The journal strives for an interdisciplinary focus both within the various domains of music study and across other academic fields in the arts, humanities, and sciences.

Intonations aspires to serve as an effective sounding board for all areas of music research, including, but not limited to: ethnomusicology, musicology, music theory, composition, popular music studies, performance, philosophy and aesthetics of music, music technology, music pedagogy, music cognition, and interdisciplinary studies.

Experimental and cross-disciplinary work and research in improvisation, sound art, video games, voice, poetics, dance, theatre, and visual art are welcomed. Authors, composers, and performers are encouraged to take advantage of the multimedia capabilities of Intonations in developing creative scholarship.
