Let Your Music Be Heard - New Audio Feature


The essence of music cannot be fully captured in words. When words aren't enough, music needs sound and we think composers will be happy to learn SSRN accepts audio files. We are excited to include text and audio side by side and for the possibilities this creates for music scholars.

How do I make a musical research submission?

When submitting an music/audio file, what should be included: Your email should include your submission's title, authors (and affiliations), abstract/summary of the work and PDF (if applicable).
