Soundscape: The Journal of Acoustic Ecology
We are excited about our organization's publication, Soundscape: The Journal of Acoustic Ecology. This annual Journal is available to all members of an Affiliate Organization.
After years of working to establish a functioning international network through the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE), we are now able to devote time to offering a professional journal. In the past, The Soundscape Newsletter, The New Soundscape Newsletter, and this web site, have been the primary means of keeping the acoustic ecology community connected and informed. Now it is time that we pool our energies through this new publication. We see this journal as a place of dialogue and debate and invite your comments, questions and critical voices.
We archive previous editions of the Journal online 6-12 months
after publication (see below). We provide this as a service to members and
others interested in the field of acoustic-ecology. Journals are available in a PDF format.
