About the Journal

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 ethnomusicological scientific tendencies and knowledge around the world. It is dedicated to the research of music 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, comunicology, semiotics, music pshychology 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 Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia  (M24).

No. 1 (2001): Muzika između dva svetska rata / Music Between the Two World Wars

We have several major motives for starting a journal called Musicology.

With this annual publication we wish to make our contribution to research on Serbian musical heritage and its presentation to domestic and international expert public. Our intention is to put special emphasis on discussions of themes not limited to local, national music but instead to include broader comparisons and observations. We also believe that contributions by our colleagues from abroad concerning similar problems in their areas can provide suitable opportunities for mutual exchange of information and direct comparison of scientific attitudes, opinions and conclusions.

With a feeling of great loss, we remember the late academician, professor Vlastimir Peričić who greatly encouraged the founding of this journal.
