Despite the inevitable fact that Covid-19 has made 2020 a challenging year for staff at GAMUT, and not at least for our students, developments demonstrate that our research community continues being fruitful and productive. In 2020 GAMUT researchers authored or co-authored 13 articles in international peer-reviewed journals, 2 books/monographs, 9 peer-reviewed book chapters, 1 popular scientific article, 1 academic literature review, 3 editorials in peer-reviewed journals, 2 reader opinion pieces, 1 short communication, 3 interviews and 2 reports. In addition, in 2020, GAMUT researchers gave 20 academic lectures, 8 other lectures, and held 1 poster at an international conference. A number of master students in music therapy at UiB take part in the research performed at GAMUT as research assistants, or through the summer research scholarships that POLYFON Knowledge Cluster for Music Therapy has enabled. In addition, there are strong international networks connected to the two peer-reviewed journals that GAMUT publishes: Nordic Journal of Music Therapy and Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy.
