International Music Journals is an international and cross-disciplinary guide to periodical literature in music. It deals not only with scholarly journals, but with those journals important to the music profession, from flautists and theorists, to musicologists and educators. Thus, in addition to journals representing the traditional fields of music scholarship (musicology, ethnomusicology, theory, therapy, and education), those publications important to various areas of music performance, composition, popular music, discography, and librarianship are included. Within this broad scope, approximately 200 of the most important titles are treated extensively. Each entry addresses five general aspects of the journal: historical background (founding and intent, editors, publishers, frequency, title, and title changes); physical description (format, illustrations); contents (subject area(s), scope, features, special issues); critical assessment (intended audience, level and quality, editorial policy, impact, innovations, outstanding issues, and articles); and bibliography (external indexes, reviews of or articles on the journal). In addition to the major entries, the book also features an introductory essay on and bibliography of the history of music periodicals; an appendix of significant journals inaugurated since 1980; a chronology; biographical notes on the contributors; and an extensive index by title, title variants, editors, general topic, geographical region, and publisher. This will be an essential tool for everyone interested in any aspect of music.
