Current Musicology 

Current Musicology (CM) is a leading forum for scholarly music research, seeking to reflect the forefront of thought in historical musicology, ethnomusicology, and music theory, as well as music cognition, philosophy of music, and interdisciplinary studies. CM was founded in 1965 by graduate students at Columbia University as a semiannual review that would primarily serve the needs of musicologists who are about to undertake, are presently engaged in, or have recently completed their graduate studies. From its inception, the aim of the journal was to publish short articles of research, criticism, and opinion, predominantly by younger authors. The term 'musicology' in the journal's title is to be understood in the broadest sense possible. The wide scope of the journal is evident in special issues devoted to specific topics, in the broad range of scholarship encouraged, and in the variety of books reviewed. Email:
