Musicology Today

The Journal of University of Warsaw


Open Access

ISSN - 1734-1663
eISSN - 2353-5733

A Polish musicology yearbook issued in English since 2004. The initiator of the magazine was Katarzyna Dadak-Kozicka, PhD, a professor at the F. Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and the former Chair of Sekcja Muzykologów (the Musicologists' Section) of Związek Kompozytorów Polskich (the Polish Composers' Union). The yearbook is published by the Musicologists' Section and the Institute of Musicology, University of Warsaw, with financial support from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education. "Musicology Today" is highly evaluated and indexed on the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education Evaluated Journals List (8 points).

The aim of the publication is to present the achievements of the dynamically developing Polish musicology to the musicological circles in Europe and worldwide. The published issues of the yearbook represent a wide spectrum of Polish scholars' activity. The editorial team declares its interest in the main sections of musicology as well as in musical works and the history of musical culture throughout human civilisation. Other fields of knowledge will by no means be omitted, e.g. aesthetics, methodology, theory of music, ethnomusicology, anthropology, psychology and the sociology of music - all these fall within the scope of Polish musicologists' interest. Foreign authors can also have their articles published in "Musicology Today" providing they are relevant to the topics selected for the given year.
