Application to Participate in the Institute of Jazz Studies (IJS) Research Community

The Institute of Jazz Studies Research Community, a community of practice dedicated to research and teaching to further the study of Jazz and related fields, is open for participation.

The primary purpose of the community is to provide enhanced access to digitized, archival resources from the the Institute of Jazz Studies to advance scholarship in the fields of jazz and music studies. This enhanced access includes use of the audiovisual analysis tool, the RUAnalytic, to advance your research and practice. As a community member, you will receive private work space to create annotated audio clips (known as analytics) from available recordings that you can keep for private use, share with others and incorporate into your teaching and research. Over time, we hope to develop a fully functioning virtual community where you can meet, innovate and develop your research and practice with others in many additional ways.& We will look to the members to guide us in that development.

Please get started with us by completing the form below. When the completed form is received, we will contact you as soon as we review the information.


Participation in the IJS Research Community requires that you have reviewed the IJS Research Community Code of Conduct, that you fully understand it, and you agree to abide by all of its requirements, including those incorporated by reference from the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct Including 2010 Amendments of the American Psychological Association and the Principles and Best Practices of the Oral History Association.
