Computer Music Journal - A quarterly printed journal with an annual music CD. (CD not included electronically.) It concentrates on the skills, technologies, and promises of digital sound and all musical applications of computers. It is aimed at musicians, composers, scientists, engineers, computer enthusiasts interested in contemporary and electronic music, and anyone exploring the wonders of computer-generated sound.

D-Lib Magazine [UK mirror of]- a solely electronic publication with a primary focus on digital library research and development, including but not limited to new technologies, applications, and contextual social and economic issues. The full contents of the magazine, including all back issues, are available free of charge at the D-Lib web site as well as multiple mirror sites around the world.

IEEE Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing - Covers speech and audio technologies and the sciences that support them. In audio: transducers, room acoustics, active sound control, human audition, analysis/synthesis/ coding of music, and consumer audio.
Call for papers: Special Issue on Data Mining of Spech, Audio and Dialog (Deadline 1 July 2004)

Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA) - The Journal serves physical scientists, life scientists, engineers, psychologists, physiologists, architects, musicians, and speech communication specialists. Subject coverage includes: linear and nonlinear acoustics; aeroacoustics, underwater sound and acoustical oceanography; ultrasonics and quantum acoustics; architectural and structural acoustics and vibration; speech, music and noise; psychology and physiology of hearing; engineering acoustics, sound transducers and measurements; bioacoustics, animal bioacoustics and bioresponse to vibration.

Journal of Negative Results in Speech and Audio Sciences  New for 2004  - There have been numerous philosophical arguments in support of the fact that a negative result is just as valuable in understanding the unknown phenomenon as is a positive one. Today, more so than in earlier years, theories that are extremely plausible but do not bear out in practice, are repeatedly re-invented, re-implemented and re-argued by new investigators who have no way of knowing their outcome except through a fortuitous intersection with the scientific grapevine. The mission of this journal is to form a serious scientific reference archive of these results.

Journal of New Music Research - The Journal, which was launched in 1972, has an interdisciplinary orientation and affords a forum as an interface for disciplines ranging from musicology (music theory, aesthetics, sociology), psychology (from psychoacoustics to cognitive psychology - with emphasis on modelling), information sciences (from sound engineering to artificial intelligence), philosophy (epistemology and methodology) and brain sciences. (It has an Electronic Appendix containing sound examples that have been mentioned in articles.)

Music Perception - Publishes original empirical and theoretical papers, methodological articles and critical reviews from scientists and musicians studying musical phenomena. The broad range of disciplines covered includes psychology, psychophysics, linguistics, neurology, neurophysiology, artificial intelligence, computer technology, physical and architectural acoustics, and music theory.

Organized Sound - An international journal, which focuses on the rapidly developing methods and issues arising from the use of technology in music today. It concentrates upon the impact which the application of technology is having upon music in a variety of genres, including multimedia, performance art, sound sculpture and music ranging from popular idioms to experimental electroacoustic composition.
