We have indexed over 690 academic music journals in the Open Music Library.
Are there other publications you think we should include? Post your suggestions below.
bosstone42 suggested the following via Reddit:
Access to historical journals would be great. I'm talking like Neue Zeitschrift für Musik or Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung or Dwight's Music Journal, etc.
Here are some relevant links:
Please include Keyboard Perspectives: http://westfield.org/publications/kp9/
Thank you so much for your suggestion!
I have now added Keyboard Perspectives to the OML, and indexed Vol. IX, which is the latest one.
You can see the journal here:
Adding articles to the OML is something that anyone with a free account can do. Would you be interested in helping me index the other volumes? Here's a video demonstrating how I've added the articles so far:
PS: I was very happy to see that most authors in Vol. IX are already recognised authors in the OML, with a bunch of other articles published in other journals already indexed and discoverable here. Take, for example, David Yearsley, who has another 11 articles already in the OML! That's cool! Thanks for such a relevant suggestion.
Indexing open-access journal Point of Departure would be a great addition for improvised music and jazz (http://www.pointofdeparture.org/)
That's a great idea, @arturoryley! Thanks for the suggestion.
Hi! I suggest JEMS: Journal of Experimental Music Studies, an open-access peer-review rolling journal hosted by the Experimental Music Catalogue. http://experimentalmusic.co.uk/wp/jems-journal-of-experimental-music-studies/
Hi! Another journal not on your list: Performance Research. Unfortunately behind a paywall: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rprs20/current Or Journal of Musicological Research: http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/gmur20
That’s a fantastic suggestion, Virginia! Thank you.
I just added the Journal record in the OML here — we’ll index the articles shortly.
Thanks! This is wonderful! EDIT: We’re a UK journal. Not a big thing—it’s where we live, but we do write about American subjects.
Please add the open access Journal of Sonic Studies: https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/558606/558607
I’m the editor of MUSICultures. I was browsing the Open Music Library today and I was a little confused about how MUSICultures is included. For one, it doesn’t come up when searching for ethnomusicology journals.
For another, when I click on it, it doesn’t have any articles, although the entire back catalogue is openly accessible aside from the most recent 3 years.
Your initiative is wonderful, and I’m wondering if I can provide anything that would help to include MUSICultures more fully and accurately in your listing?
