Editorial Board

Musicology Australia is governed by an Editorial Board of senior musicologists. Details about the membership of the Board will be made available here in the near future.

Musicology Australia is the scholarly journal of the Musicological Society of Australia. Since its inception in 1963, the journal has published articles on all aspects of music research, especially ethnomusicology and musicology, which marks it out from most other music journals.

Today, articles and reviews cover a broad spectrum of music research, including historical musicology, ethnomusicology, popular music, indigenous music practices, jazz, theory and analysis, organology, performance practice, and contemporary music. The journal is published twice a year, in July and December, with occasional Special Issues. Contributors are not required to write on Australian music or be Australian-based musicologists. Researchers interested in proposing a Special Issue should contact the Editor for further information.

Articles should normally be 6000-10,000 words (including footnotes and/or references), though shorter and longer articles will be considered. All articles considered for publication are assessed anonymously by at least two experts. Solicited and unsolicited book reviews (2000 words) and review articles (4000 words) are considered for publication.
