Sound Studies Review A New International Peer-Reviewed Music Journal

Housed in the Department of Music and Theater at Manhattan College and managed by faculty and students in the Sound Studies program, Sound Studies Review (SSR) is an international, peer-reviewed music journal, published semiannually by Brepols. The journal seeks to present multiple perspectives on the science and cultural reception of sound in our everyday listening environment. The purpose of the journal is to diversify the audience of sound studies by offering a wide range of differing topics that converge at the intersection between musicology, audio technology, acoustical research, media studies, and the environment.
