We care about open science. Because our research is almost entirely publicly funded, and because all our permanent and non-permanent positions are civil servants part of the public sector, we believe it is a moral commitment to make our results accessible for free at all levels of society. This includes publications (open-access) but also research material, stimuli, data, and software.

Click on the banners below for direct access to the PDFs of the papers;
on for a link to the project’s code hosted on the group’s github page;
and on for a link to the associated research data (stimuli and results).

Our overt objective with the following is that 100% of our publications are associated with all three banners. If one is missing for a specific project, there’s a good chance that we’re working on it - do feel free to request as you need.

Since 2021, all our research data is doi-indexed in the Université de Bourgogne Franche-Comté’s Open Data portal Dat@UBFC. In addition to resources specific to papers below, we also develop and maintain a number of open-source research software, including reverse-correlation toolbox CLEESE and vocal-feedback plateform DAVID, which can be found on our Resources page.

Note: Articles published before 2020 correspond to work conducted in the CREAM music neuroscience team in IRCAM. We list here a selection of publications that are important to our current research. For a complete list of publications on music cognition and vocal emotions from the CREAM team (2016-2020), see the CREAM archive page. For even earlier work on machine learning and audio signal processing, see JJA’s Google Scholar page.
