The Transactions of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval publishes novel scientific research in the field of music information retrieval (MIR), an interdisciplinary research area concerned with processing, analysing, organising and accessing music information. We welcome submissions from a wide range of disciplines, including computer science, musicology, cognitive science, library & information science and electrical engineering.
TISMIR was established to complement the widely cited ISMIR conference proceedings and provide a vehicle for the dissemination of the highest quality and most substantial scientific research in MIR. TISMIR retains the Open Access model of the ISMIR Conference proceedings, providing rapid access, free of charge, to all journal content. In order to encourage reproducibility of the published research papers, we provide facilities for archiving the software and data used in the research. To avoid excessive cost to the authors or their institutions, TISMIR is published in electronic-only format.
In 2020, TISMIR published our first special collection, "20th Anniversary of ISMIR", followed by the special collection in 2021 on the topic of “AI and Musical Creativity”, the topic of the upcoming special collection is “Cultural Diversity in MIR”.
We would now like to invite proposals for future special collections. A TISMIR special collection comprises multiple, interrelated contributions that provide comprehensive coverage of a specific topic of interest to the MIR community.
The full guidelines can be found here: https://transactions.ismir.net/collections/special/tismir-special-collection-proposal-guidelines/
Proposals should be submitted by October 31 2022 so that they can be considered by the editorial board for 2023. Please don't hesitate to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any further advice.

TISMIR is pleased to announce our latest special collection, AI and Musical Creativity, guest edited by Bob L. T. Sturm, Alexandra L. Uitdenbogerd, Anna Huang and Hendrik Vincent Koops.
This special collection focuses on research developments in the domain of artificial intelligence (AI) applied to modeling and creating music. It consists of several articles contributing technical knowledge, discussions of the practicalities of working and assessing AI applied to music, and critical reflections of ethical dimensions.
You can read all of the collection articles for free here and we'll be adding additional papers over the coming weeks, so do keep checking back for the latest papers.
