Journal History

Engaging Students: Essays in Music Pedagogy presents short essays on the subject of student-centered learning, and serves as a pedagogical resource for those teaching college-level classes in music.

The motivation behind the journal was drawn in part from our vision for a new format of scholarly communication based upon collaborative and swift peer review. We take our inspiration from hack-a-thons, in which creative solutions to a problem emerge from working intensely together in a collaborative environment for a limited time. Authors receive feedback quickly, and the revision process consists of efficient online interactions with the editorial group. The final result is open-access and published under a Creative Commons license. Volumes 1–6 are available at: Beginning with Volume 7, the journal is published by The Ohio State University Libraries.
