“Future Directions in the Psychology of Music”


The neuroscience of music evolved over two decades into a well-established area of study. As early career scientists, we are proud to be part of the movement. Advances in Cognitive Psychology (ACP) is an international, open access, peer-reviewed journal following Open Science practices. ACP found its voice 15 years ago with articles on musical performance published by notable scientists in the field. Today, we take pride in promoting high publishing standards and scientific excellence. Now is the perfect time to bring the journal back to its roots as we launch our special issue devoted to the future directions in the psychology of music. We invite you to
bring forth innovative ideas and novel research directions to show that music cognition remains a fascinating and dynamic field.

Until June 30th 2022, we welcome submissions of original empirical (including null finding reports) and theoretical papers on the cognitive science of music.

• Accepted manuscripts will be published as advance online publications.
• In Q1 of 2022, the articles will be officially brought together as a special issue.

Our editorial team includes:
• Laura Ferreri, Université Lumière Lyon 2, Lyon, France
• Floris van Vugt, University of Montreal, Montreal, Canada
• Philippe Albouy, Laval University, Quebec City, Canada
• Charles-Etienne Benoit, University of Economics and Human Sciences, Warsaw, Poland
• Valentin Begel, McGill University, Montreal, Canada
• Carlotta Lega, University of Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy


We are looking forward to your submissions!
