Sempre and SAGE are delighted to announce that from Volume 40, number 1, Dr Alexandra Lamont, Keele University, UK, will be taking over the Editorship of Psychology of Music from Professor Raymond MacDonald.
Raymond steps down after a hugely successful five year term, during which time Psychology of Music has grown in submissions, readership and citations, with the journal receiving its first Impact Factor of 1.182 in the 2010 Journal Citation Reports.
To accommodate the number of high quality submissions the journal is now attracting, from 2012 Psychology of Music will be publishing six issues a year. This development comes at the perfect time, with Sempre and Psychology of Music celebrating their 40th anniversaries in 2012. Special Issues are planned for the 2012 volume to mark the occasion, and an Anniversary Conference was held at the Institute of Education in London on 14-15 September 2012. Please visit the conferences section for more information.
We would like to thank Raymond for all his work and dedication to Psychology of Music, and we welcome Alexandra, with whom we look forward to working in the months and years to come.
