REF Notice - Delays in POMP publishing

Delays to publication due to Covid 19.

Books affected:

  • 3D Audio (edited by Hyunkook Lee & Justin Paterson).

  • Mastering In Music (Edited by JP Braddock, Russ Hepworth-Sawyer, Matt Shelvock, Rob Toulson & Jay Hodgson).

  • Innovation In Music - Future Opportunities (Edited by Justin Paterson, Rob Toulson & Russ Hepworth-Sawyer).

Dear colleagues,

Many contributors to these volumes, and their colleagues interested in REF submissions, may have noticed their publication schedule slip by several months as can be seen on Routledge's catalogue here for the titles as they enter production.

This delay has been directly caused by factors relating to Covid 19. Both the editors and the publishers have seen delays in production and editing cycles. Having said this, the delays are kept to a minimum and we'll be continuing to update contributors with production schedules as the publishing progresses.

For further reassurance or information, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Yours sincerely,

Russ Hepworth-Sawyer, Jay Hodgson & Mark Marrington
