I light has emerged from the darkness of the pandemic - a new and interesting issue of EJPAE! The issue presents two articles:
The first article is by Ola Buan Øien who has explored how concepts developed by Daniel Lanois can be useful in performances through arts based research. The concept investigated are sonic ambience, master station, operating by limitation, locations, preparing and black dubs. In this exploration he has turned inwards and analysed his own compositional process.
The second article discusses the relationship between art and science and is written by Thomas Dillern. By using Leonardo da Vinci as an example, he shows that art and science as human endeavours share some common traits. Read the issue here
EJPAE is proud to present three great articles in this first issue of 2020. We have contributions from Canada, Guatemala, Germany, Norway and USA representing museum education, music education and music therapy. These are curious times and this issue are for curious people. Enjoy!
Even if a journal can not get ill by a physical virus, EJPAE has been affected by the virus. The editor lives i Stockholm, Sweden a city that has been hit hard. Unfortunately increased workload due to distance teaching as well as ill family members has led to a delay in the processing of incoming articles. I expect to have the next issue out before the summer holidays, and is now slowly catching up with article reviews. I do hope you have patience with us in this strange situation and apologise for any inconvenience!
Finally the last issue of 2019 is out of the door! Enjoy articles about a Swedish reform school focusing the arts, about research ethics for researchers in music education and education in the arts, and a mind boggling article about a suggesting change towards a new paradigm for music education - a paradigm of the commons. Three articles from three different countries: Finland, Sweden and Greece. The authors are: Juvas Marianne Liljas, Cecilia Björk and Marja-Leena Juntunen, and Alexandros Kioupkiolis. Enjoy the reading and thinking!
The first special issue in EJPAE's history is due. And what an issue: The theme - Arts Based Research - represents one of the most exciting developments in educational research the last decades and in this issue we meet different reflections and representations of this approach to research. The editors this time have been Cecilia Ferm-Almqvist and Torill Vist who has done an excellent job of guiding the articles to the finished state - as well as having written an excellent introduction to the topic at hand. Enjoy the reading!
