1. General

The Frankfurter Zeitschrift für Musikwissenschaft (abbreviated as FZMw) is an online publication. The editors intend to use the possibilities of worldwide communication systems in order to offer a forum to the discipline of musicology.
The FZMw can therefore disseminate its authors’ submissions quickly and over the widest possible area.
The journal was established at the end of 1997 on the initiative of Dr. Wolfgang Krebs. Since January 1998 it was edited by Clemens Gresser (until November 2007) and Wolfgang Krebs and since January 2001, additionally by Arne Stollberg. In June 2002 the editorial team was strengthened by Annette Förger and Wolfgang Marx.

2. Aims of the Journal

The FZMw is not limited to any particular theme, and accepts submissions from anyone. It contains articles, reviews and reports.
The FZMw also offers a section “Texte und Materialien” (Texts & Materials). These materials are intended to be of use to those studying or teaching musicology.
The FZMw does not intend to promote any particular scholarly viewpoint, nor to propagate any philosophical or methodological approach. The content of individual contributions does not reflect the opinions of the editors.
The FZMw also offers students of musicology the possibility to contribute. The main principle here is that contributions offer something new and relevant for the discipline. Submissions which are essentially university essays will be refused.
Despite being an internet journal, the FZMw nevertheless follows the traditional conventions regarding the use of secondary literature. On the other hand, some of the peculiarities of the electronic medium are taken into account.

3. Frequency and Methods of Publication

The FZMw is updated after the acceptance of an article. Accompanying documents of the FZMw serve to support the articles of the main text.
The languages of the FZMw are German and English. Every contribution since January 2004 appears only in the PDF format. Each year of the journal is numbered through.

4. Distributions and Costs

Access to the FZMw over the internet is free of charge.
