Music has been called the universal language. Music transcends all forms of communication and has a way of bringing people from all cultures, areas and backgrounds together like few things can. Music is a multifaceted subject that reaches into several branches of life.
Music research often draws on a diverse skill set, including data-driven research and more humanistic subject matter. SSRN is particularly helpful to musicians and researchers because it fosters just this type of interdisciplinary discovery. Cutting edge content from a wide array of disciplines is available, and our classifiers unearth intersections between disciplines in the way our content is classified.
Musicians and researchers discover the latest, cutting-edge research in their field that may not otherwise come to their attention. SSRN also helps bring attention to a broad array of scholarship including approaches that might not fit in with traditional theories or journal scopes.
