Savart violin

The journal is named after and inspired by the work of 19th century French physicist Felix Savart, an early researcher in the acoustics of stringed musical instruments. The Savart Journal is made available through the efforts of volunteer editorial and review staffs.

Call for Papers

Submissions of research articles on all aspects of the science and technology of stringed musical instruments are requested for the Savart Journal. Topics include instrument acoustics, psychoacoustics, preference testing, general physics of stringed musical instruments, geometry and proportion of instruments, manufacturing technology, stringed instrument music synthesis, etc. Research on materials, including finishing materials and adhesives is also appropriate for the journal. These are just a few examples of topics appropriate for the journal. All topics in science and technology as applied to bowed and/or plucked stringed musical instruments are suitable for inclusion.
