Trends in Singing Voice Research: An Innovative Approach

  1. 1. Trends in Singing Voice Research: An Innovative Approach Pedro Pestana, Susana Vaz-Freitas, Maria Conceição Manso ppestana@pmpterapia.pt | Esposende and Porto, Portugal © 2017 The Voice Foundation. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. | https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jvoice.2017.12.003 (singing[mh] OR singer[tiab] OR singers[tiab]) AND (voice[mh] OR voice[tiab]) NOT (neoplasms[mh] OR laryngectom*[tiab]) The objectives of this study were to trace and describe research patterns in singing voice, to compare the amount of published research over time, to identify journals that published most papers on “singing voice,” and to establish the most frequent research topics. The study uses qualitative and quantitative approaches through descriptive statistics, text mining, and clustering. The authors conducted a search to identify scientific papers. The titles and abstracts were analyzed regarding word frequency and relations between them, through hierarchical cluster analysis and co-occurrence networks. The frequency of journals was calculated, as well as the amount of papers across time. The growing interest in singing has been conspicuous since the first indexed paper. However, it has been slightly slowing down. Until 2010, great importance was given to the voice quality of singers and their occupational demands. Acoustic analysis was widely used to study the effects of training. Since 2010, the concern with functionality is increasing, rather than the organic voice structures. Musical perception studies have been a trend, as well as the use of electroglottography.
