From the Taylor & Francis website for the journal:

“Published three times a year, Rock Music Studies publishes articles, book and audio reviews, and opinion pieces on rock music and its numerous subgenres.

“To best focus this international journal, the editors of Rock Music Studies, which evolved from Popular Music and Society, limit the usually all-inclusive definition of rock to exclude other genres such as doo-wop, country, jazz, soul, and hip hop, but include roll and roll, rockabilly, blues rock, country rock, jazz rock, folk rock, hard rock, psychedelic rock, prog rock, metal, punk, alternative, and other subgenres of rock.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2014) to present.

Manuscript Studies

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Manuscript Studies.

much-adoe-about-nothing
From the Project Muse website for the journal:

Manuscript Studies is a new journal that embraces the full complexity of global manuscript studies in the digital age. It has been conceived with four main goals in mind. First, to bridge the gaps between material and digital manuscript research; second, to break down the walls which often separate print and digital publication and serve as barriers between academics, professionals in the cultural heritage field, and citizen scholars; third, to serve as a forum for scholarship encompassing many pre-modern manuscripts cultures—not just those of Europe; and finally to showcase methods and techniques of analysis in manuscript studies that can be applied across different subject areas”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2016) to present.

New Oxford Shakespeare

The University of Cambridge now has access to the New Oxford Shakespeare online.

Now in October 2016 the text of the plays in this edition is available online from the Oxford Scholarly Editions Online platform.  To follow in December 2016 will be the Critical Reference Edition and the Authorship Companion.  To keep up-to-date sign up to the OSEO news feed.

In the Shakespeare 400th-anniversary year, The New Oxford Shakespeare presents an entirely new consideration of all of Shakespeare’s works, edited from first principles from the base-texts themselves, and drawing on the latest textual and theatrical scholarship.

The New Oxford Shakespeare addresses ‘the great variety of readers’–students, scholars, actors, writers, artists–in multiple formats, at multiple levels. It combines the best of previous scholarship with twenty-first century tools to find better solutions to old problems.”
–Gary Taylor, General Editor

From the Project Muse website for the journal:

Critical Philosophy of Race will examine issues raised by the concept of race, the practices and mechanisms of racialization, and the persistence of various forms of racism across the world. It opposes racism in all forms; it rejects the pseudosciences of old-fashioned biological racialism; it denies that anti-racism and anti-racialism summarily eliminate race as a meaningful category of analysis. “

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2013) to present.

Philosophy and Theology

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Philosophy and Theology

karl_rahner_by_letizia_mancino_cremerFrom the Philosophy Document Centre website for the journal:

Philosophy & Theology is a peer-reviewed journal that addresses all areas of interest to these two ancient disciplines and explores the common ground that joins them. While not a journal of the philosophy of religion, one issue each year includes articles devoted to the thought and legacy of the theologian Karl Rahner. Rahner’s appropriation of diverse theological and philosophical sources provided an innovative conceptual framework that established his reputation as one of the most influential systematic theologians of the Vatican II era.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1986) to present.

Access Philosophy and Theology via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.
