Countdown to ISME 2016

International Journal of Music Education (IJME) PDF Print E-mail


The International Journal of Music Education is the official journal of the International Society for Music Education, and therefore the prime vehicle for dialogue and exchange between music educators in nearly 80 countries represented in every continent within the ISME organization and more generally within the discipline of music education. The editorial boards of the IJME represent the most prominent scholars and practitioners from around the world and the journal is the only scholarly publication representing the best practices and research with a world-wide scope. The four issues of IJME per year focus individually on documenting scholarly research, and innovative practices in teaching and learning. Included also is a special showcase issue targeted at timely topics and issues of relevance to the world of music education. The uniqueness of the journal is that it covers the full range of topics and methodologies relevant to music education theory and practice as well as important issues that are currently being addressed within the profession. From 2004 IJME is being published by Sage Publications.
