About the Journal

One of the premier journals in musicology, Journal of the American Musicological Society publishes scholarship from a broad array of musical inquiry: from historical musicology, critical theory, music analysis, iconography and organology, to pedagogy, performance practice, aesthetics and hermeneutics, ethnomusicology, gender and sexuality, popular music, and cultural studies. Recognized for the breadth of its intellectual scope and its penetration in the field, JAMS informs musicological scholarship with articles, book reviews, and other communications.
