The Journal of Music Therapy
"The Journal of Music Therapy publishes only the very best of what is submitted and includes articles concerning the psychology of music, applied music therapy techniques, perception of music, and effects of music on human behavior. All papers for publication are selected on the basis of their quality and contribution to existing knowledge. About 30% of submitted manuscripts are accepted for publication and include but are not limited to qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodologies; historical, descriptive, philosophical, or experimental designs; and integrative reviews, meta-analysis or meta-synthesis. Individual case studies or studies with very small numbers of subjects are rarely published; however, an extremely innovative case study may be accepted due to its unique contribution to knowledge. Conversely, articles of any type which do not advance the science and practice of music therapy are not accepted"
