About This Journal

Journal of Art, Design and Music (JADM) is a peer-reviewed bi-annual journal covering all sub-disciplines of Art, Design & Music. The Journal of Art, Design and Music (JADM) aims to improve the quality of scientific research in the fields of Art, Design, and music, applying international standards. The journal also gives researchers from all over the world the opportunity to publish international research on Arts, Design & Music.

JADM is published by Helwan University (HU), which is a public university established in 1975, and located in Cairo, Egypt. Although HU is just 46 years old university, its faculties such as “Applied Arts”, “Fine Arts”, “Art Education” and “Music” were established in 1839, 1908, and 1936 respectively, far before the official HU establishment. Therefore, HU is considered to be a unique model among Egyptian universities as it encompasses the oldest and the most prestigious Art, Design, and Music faculties in the MENA region.
