Journal Titles

RILM Abstracts extensively covers journals, the titles of which can be browsed on this page.

Coverage policy defines three priorities for journals; the first two—core and secondary—pertain specifically to music journals.

Core journals. These are flagship journals of music studies; all articles are abstracted and all reviews are cited (with the exception of film and sound recording reviews, which are cited at the discretion of RILM national committees or staff editors).

Secondary journals. These are also deemed significant for music studies. They are systematically scanned for articles that fall within the scope guidelines, and these articles are abstracted.

Other journals. These include music journals that are less oriented toward music scholarship and are not systematically scanned as well as multi-disciplinary and other non-music journals that may occasionally have an article related to music. Coverage is selective.
