Revista Portuguesa de Musicologia (RPM, nova série)
Portuguese Journal of Musicology (RPM, New Series)
The Portuguese Journal of Musicology (RPM, New Series) is an on-line refereed journal open to all areas of music research. It is co-published by the Portuguese Society for Music Research (SPIM) and by two research centres based at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), the Institute of Ethnomusicology – Centre for Studies in Music and Dance (INET-MD) and the Centre for the Study of Sociology and Aesthetics of Music (CESEM). The RPM New Series seeks to provide continuity to the journal initially published by the Portuguese Musicological Association in 1991.
RPM will be published twice annually (June and December), and will include major research articles as well as reviews of books, recordings and other media. English and Portuguese are the primary languages, but articles in Spanish, French and Italian will also be welcome.
The RPM will not consider articles that have been published elsewhere or that are currently under consideration by another journal.
1. Article length should be between 5,000-10,000 words, including footnotes and references. However, both longer and shorter articles may also be considered.
2. Articles should be submitted in electronic form, as e-mail attachments. Figures, tables, and musical examples should be provided as separate files.
3. Please include, in separate attachments a covering file including the title of the article submitted, the author’s name and institutional affiliation (if any) and full contact details; a short abstract in English (between 100 and 250 words), including at least five keywords, and a biographical note of the author (around 60 words).
4. Because the peer review process is anonymous, the author’s name should not appear on any of the documents other than the covering file and the biographical note.
5. The authors are responsible for obtaining copyright permission for all the documents they propose for publication.
6. If the article is accepted for publication, the authors are required to format a final copy following the RPM style sheet.
