About the Journal:
Musica Est Donum (music is a gift), is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published on a rolling basis per calendar year. We invite submissions that critically describe and celebrate the extraordinary role that music plays in our daily lives. In particular, MED encourages articles that promote the educational, social, cultural, economic, political, religious, and psychological aspects of musical experiences. Generally speaking, musical experiences are rooted in the passive and active consumption of music, as well as the creative process involved in the composition and/or performance of music. MED publishes articles in a variety of scholarly formats, including original research, opinion papers, general discussions, book reviews, and selected creative works (musical compositions/arrangements, visual art, film, fictional narratives, etc.).

Publication within Musica Est Donum is based on (1) overall scholarly merit, and (2) alignment with the philosophy and objectives of the journal. Hence, accepted papers will not be subjected to a publication fee.
