SoundEffects: New Journal on “Sound and Sound Experience”

There is a new Journal in the field of Sound Studies, called SoundEffects and dealing with “Sound and Sound Experience”. The editors are inviting submissions now. I’m hoping that some of you will submit some mobile sound experience-related articles, as this sounds like a great new initiative.  There is more information at and copied from their website below:

SoundEffects – An Interdisciplinary Journal of Sound and Sound Experience

We are pleased to announce the launch of SoundEffects, a new international peer-reviewed journal on sound and sound experience operating on the Open Journal System.

SoundEffects brings together a plurality of theories, methodologies, and historical approaches applicable to sound as both mediated and unmediated experience. The journal primarily addresses disciplines within media and communication studies, aesthetics, musicology, comparative literature, cultural studies, and sociology. In order to push the boundary of interdisciplinary sound studies into new areas, we also encourage contributions from disciplines such as psychology, health care, architecture, and sound design. As the only international journal to take a humanities-based interdisciplinary approach to sound, SoundEffects is responding to the increasing global interest in sound studies.

We look forward to introducing our first volume in June 2011 (please check our first call for articles below). One of the advantages of SoundEffects as opposed to paper journals is that we can offer authors the possibility to attach sound bites to their articles (please check the Author Guidelines).

The editors of SoundEffects: Birger Langkjær, Erik Granly Jensen, Birgitte Stougaard Pedersen and Iben Have.

ISSN: 1904-500X

The journal is supported by the following International Advisory Board: Michael Bull (University of Sussex);  Annabel J. Cohen (University of Prince Edward Island); Steven Connor (Birkbeck College, London); Nicholas Cook, (University of Cambridge); Christoph Cox (Hampshire College); Lydia Goehr (Columbia University);  Antoine Hennion (Centre de Sociologie de l’Innovation, Paris); Kathleen Higgins (University of Texas, Austin); Douglas Kahn (University of California); Phillip Tagg (Universities of Huddersfield and Salford).
