is an online community of scholars interested in the applications of computers in music research. It was initiated as part of a research project at Goldsmiths' College, University of London called Purcell Plus which aims to assess the impact of e-Science on musicology. The project conducted a general survey of musicologists (targeting especially English-speaking scholars) asking them about how they use computer technology in their work and what they might expect from computer technology. Respondents were also asked if they would be interested in joining a mailing list to discuss computer technology for music research. This online community is centred around that mailing list.

New members are always very welcome. The group is very informal and runs no membership system. You are free to consider yourself a member by subscribing to the mailing list if this makes sense to you. New members are invited, if they have not already done so, to complete the Purcell Plus survey:
