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.
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.

Deadline for submissions: April 4th 2022.
This special collection will focus on cultural diversity in Music Information Retrieval (MIR) research. Music is often considered a universal language, yet different cultures have created diverse music traditions. This cultural diversity obviously has implications for MIR research.
We welcome contributions that present cross-cultural studies, or address non-Western music as well as any other types of music and musical activities that are underrepresented in the ISMIR community, or that explicitly focus on cultural contexts of both music and users.
Guest Editors: Zhiyao Duan (University of Rochester), Peter van Kranenburg (KNAW Meertens Institute), Juhan Nam (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), and Preeti Rao (Indian Institute of Technology Bombay)
