Publish with Us

Publishers around the world have partnered with RILM to make their journal and encyclopedia content, covering a wide range of subjects in music, available to researchers worldwide. Following our mission to provide the world’s writings on music to the global research community, we offer new ways to expand your market reach by integrating journals in full text into our widely used flagship resource RILM Abstracts, and by integrating reference works into the collection of reference works, RILM Music Encyclopedias. With no investment on your part other than providing content in hard-copy or electronic form, we invite you to join our current and ongoing projects. With your content’s inclusion, it not only becomes accessible to a broad international community of music researchers, it is also archived and preserved.

Develop Your Content with Us

We are constantly exploring leading technologies for preserving, delivering, and linking content on Egret, RILM’s platform for hosting, editing, and distributing full-text resources. With Egret we can customize a strategy that preserves your content and makes it ever more accessible as we have done with the renowned German-language encyclopedia MGG Online.
