The British Journal of Music Therapy

Published twice a year, the British Journal of Music Therapy is a peer-reviewed journal for music therapists and other professionals interested in all aspects of music therapy.

The BJMT publishes original articles or essays that have direct relevance to the field of music therapy. The Editors will consider full-length articles for publication but also shorter less formal contributions such as essays, case studies and responses to articles. Prospective contributors are always welcome to contact the Editorial Team in order to discuss their ideas.

We also welcome reviews of published material (1,500-3,500 words) such as books, CDs and videos. Prospective book reviewers should contact the Editorial Team describing their areas of expertise and interest.

The back inside cover of the journal contains details for authors considering submitting an article. These are also included on this webpage as a PDF. Authors may also contact the Editors directly at
