British Postgraduate Musicology is an independent peer-reviewed musicological journal run by postgraduates for postgraduates. Under its title it aims to display the quality and diversity of scholarly studies produced primarily (but not exclusively) by postgraduate or recent postdoctoral students of music in the United Kingdom. Contributions are invited on any topic within the spheres of historical, analytical, critical or ethno – musicology. There is a short section for reviews, reports and notices particularly pertinent to postgraduate researchers.
BPM is published annually online, is available free-of-charge, and is read by hundreds of scholars around the world. BPM is an excellent opportunity to gain experience of the publishing process and get that first publication for upcoming musicologists. Postgraduate “transfer of knowledge” jumps on the bandwagon of the current emphasis on skills and development that is found in the contemporary postgraduate climate, and therefore puts us at the forefront of academic activities today.
Every effort has been made to make BPM online as accessible as possible. This site includes the full text of the current volume of British Postgraduate Musicology, as well as back issues from volume four onwards. Contents pages for volumes one to three (the printed copies) are also available online, and a limited number of hard back-copies of these volumes are available for sale.
If you would like to read the current volume or back issues, contact the editor, or simply find out more about the journal and this website, please explore the site using the navigation bar on the left.
