 HeJMEC (http://hejmec.eu/) is an international, on-line and peer reviewed journal devoted to critical study and critical analysis of issues related to the fields of Music, Education, and Culture.HeJMEC provides open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.  HeJMEC welcomes single, multi- and inter-disciplinary contributions of research and literature in the areas of music, education, and culture and publishes both qualitative and quantitative research with substantive and theoretical merit, along with critical reviews, theoretical articles, and invited book reviews related to these fields:

Music and Education: The wide range of topics includes various aspects of music education (paedagogy, history, philosophy, sociology, psychology, technology, and aesthetics) addressing vocal, instrumental, general music at all levels, from early childhood through adult and comparative studies. Education is interpreted in a broad sense including all aspects of teaching and learning within formal, non-formal and informal contexts (such as, musical development; socio-cultural issues; creativity; gifted and talented students; special needs; community settings; teachers' professional development; curriculum design; assessment) in order, additionally, to challenge established accounts of music education policy-analytic methods and to explore alternative approaches to policy-making.

Music and Culture: Our aim is to provide essential reading on different aspects of the study of music from a cultural point of view (ideology, music and words, music and society, music and postmodernism, music and genre, and so forth); also, to relate them with educational issues (music cultural policy, the learning process, the relationship to educational institutions, and so on). The journal thus offers a unique forum for researchers to develop views on music as a social and cultural product, as part of human behaviour and in relation to broadly perceived educational issues at the leading edge of musical and multidisciplinary scholarship.

HEJMEC is programmed to appear once a year.  The journal has already been indexed in these databases: ProQuest, DOAJ, Google scholar, PKP Open Archives Harvester, Heal Link.

As the Editors, we would like to invite all to participate in the next issue toward excellence in journal publication by contributing your papers to HeJMEC.
