Focus and Scope

SoundEffects. An Interdisciplinary Journal of Sound and Sound Experience is a peer-reviewed online journal that 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 border of interdisciplinary sound studies into new areas, we also incourage 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 respons to the increasing global interest in sound studies in the past decade.
