ARAMAES – The Student Forum of the RMA

The Royal Musical Association Student Committee is pleased to announce the launch of ARAMAES – The Student Forum of the RMA. This forum succeeds the RMA Student Blog. The aim of the forum (as with the blog before) is to offer an inclusive student-led platform to showcase the vitality and breadth of our shared discipline. We welcome submissions from students from across all fields of research (which includes, but is not limited to, musicology, composition, practice-led research) in a wide range of formats: works in progress, completed work, personal accounts, opinion pieces, interviews, conference reports, and informative articles. We especially encourage writing that showcase engagement with new material or with topical issues. Articles will be pitched at an audience with a specialised knowledge of music but with diverse research interests.

As a student, there are numerous benefits to submitting your work to ARAMAES, which include:

  • Acquainting yourself with the submission and review processes of publishing
  • Gaining experience in public engagement through writing
  • Connecting with fellow students in research
  • Disseminating your work to a wide audience
  • Establishing your academic profile among students and experienced researchers in music

The process of publishing with ARAMAES entails submission, review and outcome, edit, and publication. Submissions should include a draft and a brief description of the theme and format of the planned post and are made via email to the RMA Student Committee ( Below are further requirements that should be adhered to for submissions:

  • Draft of post should be between 750 and 2,000 words
  • In .doc or .docx format
  • Include your name, email, affiliation, position, and a short biography (approx. 150 words)

All submissions will be reviewed by two members of the Student Committee with the outcome being communicated no more than one month following submission.
