Call for papers

Per Musi regularly publishes an annual continous publishing issue, with articles in the General Topics, which will be published as the evaluation process of each article is completed. This continuous publishing also applies to thematic sessions with specific guest authors. This process goes through several stages, such as format review (initial control of the guidelines and layout of the submitted text), assignment to an associate editor or guest editor (when applicable), assignment and review by double-blind reviewers, text editing that includes analysis of plagiarism software (sector of the Flausino Vale Library) and editing.

A thematic session for 2020 is now open:

- Computing Performed Music - Guest-editors: Professor Dr. Maurício Alves Loureiro (Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil) Dr. Flávio Luiz Schiavoni (Federal University of São João del Rey, Brazil) and Dr. Davi Alves Mota (Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil). 

The CEGeME research group and UFMG School of Music proudly announces a thematic session of the Per Musi Scholarly Music Journal. The session aims at understanding the processes involved in the production and perception of musical performances and is focused on the empirical study of musical performance expressiveness. We invite authors to submit articles presenting research results, empirical experiences, cases, surveying works and other contributions that offer significant advances in the following areas, among others:

  • Multimodal music information extraction
  • Empirical study of performed music
  • Interaction and coordination in ensemble music performance
  • Sonological applications to music learning and human development
