About the Journal

Journal Summary

Journal Muzikologija-Musicology (ISSN 1450-9814, eISSN 2406-0976) is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 2001 that promotes contemporary Serbian musicological and ethnomusicological research in international circles; at the same time, by including contributions of eminent foreign scholars, it has become an important and reliable source on contemporary musicological and ethnomusicological scientific tendencies and knowledge around the world. It is dedicated to music research as an aesthetical, cultural, historical and social phenomenon, with a primary focus on musicological and ethnomusicological research. The Journal also welcomes approaches from diverse scientific disciplines (history, history of art and literature, ethnology, anthropology, sociology, communicology, semiotics, music psychology etc.) as well as interdisciplinary projects.
Three sections make up the backbone of the magazine. The Main Theme contains original articles related to a specific musicological or ethnomusicological topic. The Varia section contains scientific studies from a wider circle of thematic areas relevant to the artistic, vernacular, and ecclesiastical music traditions. The third section – Scientific Reviews and Polemics – comprises reviews of various musicological and ethnomusicological publications and reports on scientific meetings.
Until 2011 the journal was published annually. Due to an increasing interest among local and international contributors, the Editorial Board decided to start publishing two issues per year (June and December), both in print and in open-access digital format.
The Journal is indexed in the Web of Science, SCOPUS, ERIH PLUS, DOAJ, ProQuest, DoiSerbia, RILM, and in the List of Scientific Journals Categorization of the Ministry of  Science, Technological Development and Innovation of the Republic of Serbia (M23).

The journal Musicology focuses this year’s issues on studies of music and cultural trauma, thus continuing to contribute to current research streams in the science of music. The "Main Theme" of issue 36 includes examinations of traditional, art and film music and traumatic experiences in different local contexts, bringing into focus issues of refugee and diaspora, war destruction and post-war responsibilities, repression and censorship, as well as theoretical and practical considerations combined with memory studies, post-memory, identity politics and Balkanism. The "Varia" section comprises diverse articles, ranging from the analysis of the funeral laments of the Slovak national minority in Serbia, through the study of Byzantine kratēmata inspired by birdsongs, the research of the status of the Roman Catholic liturgical music during the Second Vatican Council, to the discussion of audio recordings of traditional Serbian church chant preserved at the Phonoarchive of the Institute of Musicology SASA.
