CALL FOR PAPERS
Musical Research Journal Issue 43
The journal Resonancias, published by the Music Institute at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile’s Faculty of Arts, invites specialists in musical research and/or related disciplines to send articles of their authorship presenting unpublished and relevant contributions in their areas. Articles written in Spanish, Portuguese and English will be accepted.
This call for papers hopes for submissions that offer a critical, analytical and up-to-date look at any subject related to music in Latin America, the Iberian Peninsula and other parts of the world that constitutes a study of interest for the disciplines that make up the broad field of musical research. Among these are musicology and ethnomusicology, as well as history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, ICT, neurosciences, cognition and education. It is also expected that these collaborations are able to address partially or wholly some of the theoretical, methodological and epistemological matters of the aforementioned disciplines.
Each proposal will initially be reviewed by the Editorial Team, who will determine its suitability in line with the standards and formatting of a specialised academic article, as well as the journal’s editorial line. The articles selected during this stage will then undergo a double-blind peer review assessment, after which the author will receive a report within a deadline established by the journal outlining the reasons for accepting or rejecting the article.
Over the twenty years since its founding, Resonancias has published articles by local and international specialists on themes relating mainly to music in Latin America and the Caribbean. The journal has also been the main instrument for disseminating works recognized with the Samuel Claro Valdés Latin American Musicology Prize, awarded by the University’s Music Institute since 1998 and which currently represents one of the main means to promote the discipline in our continent.
The following details constitute a summary of the journal’s editorial guidelines. The complete information about submission requirements, as well as our editorial policy can be accessed in our web site ( www.resonancias.uc.cl).
Articles should be no longer than 12,000 words, including footnotes, bibliography and annexes, while reviews should not exceed 3,200 words.
The margins should be 3 cm on each side and 2.5 on the top and bottom. The body of the text should be in Times New Roman font, size 12, and 1.5 spacing. Footnotes should equally be in Times New Roman, but in size 10 and single-spaced. Block-quotes, more than 40 words in length, should be written in Times New Roman, size 11, 1.5 spacing, indentation of 1 cm on each side, 12 points of line spacing before and after and without quotation marks.
Images should be clearly labeled directly underneath, indicating the source and credits. Moreover, all necessary legal authorization for the image’s inclusion and reproduction is solely the responsibility of the author of the text submitted.
In addition, each image must be sent separately in JPEG format, in the highest resolution possible, with clear indications as to where in the text it is located. The minimal pixilation is 300 dpi. Authors must keep in mind that, although the online version of the journal allows for color images, the print version is in full black and white.
All articles must include an abstract (maximum of 200 words) on the first page, outlining the article’s objectives, content and conclusions, both in the language in which it is written as well as in English. Similarly, articles must include 4 – 6 keywords both in the original language as well as in English. Authors must also send a brief 100-word CV in a separate attachment, once again in both languages. Album and book reviews, however, will not require abstracts, CVs or keywords.
Any reference to the author’s identity must be omitted from the article itself, in order to guarantee anonymity during the double-blind peer review process.
