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, including 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, contemporary music and psychology of music. The journal is published twice a year: in July (the regular issue) and December (a special issue). 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.
