Empirical Musicology Review (http://emusicology.org/
) is under new editorship and has moved to a new publishing system. The current issue contains contributions on _expression_ of sadness through melodic interval reduction, and beat synchronisation by horses.
Empirical Musicology Review (EMR) aims to facilitate communication and debate between scholars engaged in systematic and observation-based music scholarship and welcomes submissions with an emphasis on systematic methods, such as hypothesis-testing, modeling, and controlled observation. A wide range of topics are considered related to music and musical behaviour investigated from different perspectives including historical, social, political, cultural, economic, perceptual, and biological. Cross-overs between disciplines are in particular welcomed. The journal pioneers a "Public Peer Review" practice that is intended to encourage scholarly dialog and reward reviewers for timely and thoughtful engagement with submissions. The journal is published four times per year by The Ohio State University Libraries and provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Previous editors include David Huron and Peter Keller. The current editors are Nicola Dibben and Renee Timmers.
