THE AUSTRALASIAN JOURNAL OF SOUNDTRACK STUDIES
EDITOR: REBECCA COYLE
ASSISTANT EDITOR: NATALIE LEWANDOWSKI
Screen Sound seeks to rigorously investigate, analyse and document
sound as it occurs in relation to screen images, whether on the large or
small screen, in installation or online. Sound forms, functions and
production are included, whether as music, sound design, effects and
atmospheres, dialogue and performance, production processes and roles
of personnel. Articles, reviews and interviews are published in English
language from scholars, researchers and practitioners. The journal is
multidisciplinary in its remit, accommodating music, sound, media,
cultural, marketing and economic analysis. The publication focuses on
sound on screen media and issues relevant to work produced in Australia,
Aotearoa/New Zealand, and Oceania, and will provide a forum for case
studies and debates relevant to the region.
The publication will be published annually as a free access online journal.
The first issue of Screen Sound is planned for launch in December 2009.
In this issue, we are particularly interested in articles on sound in
television, online, games and media performance domains.
The journal will comprise three sections:
1: Double blind referee section with articles of 4,000-8,000 words.
Submission deadline: August 31.
2: Single referee edited section with industry reports, edited interview
transcripts, feature reviews, etc. Word length: 2,000-5,000. Submission
deadline: September 30.
3: Edited, non-refereed section of reviews, reports, responses and
reprints of seminal reports, etc. Word length: 1,000-4,000. Submission
