Music scholars wanted for a study

We are conducting a study on how music scholars discover, search for, obtain, and use music scores for research, giving special consideration to the role of technologies in these activities.

You can participate if:

  • You are a faculty member, a graduate or a post-graduate researcher;
  • You use music scores or manuscripts for research.

Participation in the study

If you consent to participate in our study, we will conduct an interview with you. We will ask you questions about your research activities and, more specifically, on how you discover, search for, acquire, and use music scores and manuscripts during those activities. The interview will last approximately 60 minutes and, with your permission, will be audio-recorded to facilitate transcription. The interview can be conducted online, at a time convenient for you. If you work in Montreal, the interview could take place in person, at your office or at the Université de Montréal, according to your preference.
