Information For Authors

Intermezzo, the University of Ottawa School of Music’s Undergraduate journal, is a haven for musical cognition created for students by students. It filters the highest quality student articles for peer review providing a unique and safe outlet, among peers, to develop, discuss, and share musicological ideas within historical musicology, ethnomusicology, popular music studies, music theory, and interdisciplinary subjects.

Intermezzo currently publishes one issue yearly. We welcome authors of any background as long as they are currently enrolled as an undergraduate at the University of Ottawa. Papers written in fulfillment of any course requirements are welcome, provided the paper reflects a musicological perspective.

The journal offers a sturdy stepping stone between the critical thinkers of the future and the harsh competition of graduate school. In an environment where everyone is learning, each position at Intermezzo is designed to provide optimal growth for everyone involved.
