Contributions to Music Education

Contributions to Music Education is a refereed journal published by the Ohio Music Education Association. A primary purpose is to recognize and highlight the importance of social science research in guiding educational practice. The journal is a fully peer-reviewed publication focused on issues related to music teaching and learning in school contexts. With a history of over 40 years in print, CME has supported scholarly investigation into music education since 1972. Many important figures have served as editor over the years, and numerous researchers have put forth their work in its pages.

The journal is available in print in over 45 states in the US, and several countries abroad. Since 2005 (and to 2015), digital content has been distributed through major academic databases such as ProQuest, EBSCO, ERIC, and others. Starting in April 2015, full-text archival access (1972-2013) is now available through JSTOR. The journal has been published 1-2 times yearly for the past four decades, and is currently produced as an annual double issue, in print and digitized format.

CME is a subscription-based publication. Click here to view more information, see the content, learn about the editorial board, and find out how to subscribe to your music education research journal!
