In October 2009 the Alamire Foundation launched the Journal of the Alamire Foundation, published by Brepols Publishers. This journal appears twice a year, in both print and electronic forms. The primary aim of the Journal is to provide a critical forum for the most recent and outstanding research, both by younger scholars and leading international specialists, on music in or related to the Low Countries up to the end of the Ancien Régime. The principal language of the Journal is English, but contributions in any commonly understood scholarly language will be considered.
Each issue of the Journal is structured in three sections. Recent themes have included Music Sources in Private and Civic Contexts, Jacob Obrecht and Philippe de Monte.
The second section consists of free papers. Contributions to this section are encouraged in any area of musicological research, including analysis, music theory, palaeography and notation, source studies, archival research, music and institutions, and aesthetics. Interdisciplinary research, in fields such as music and iconography, literature, theology, politics, art history, emblematics, or philosophy is also particularly welcomed. Articles (of 5,000 - 10,000 words) may be submitted at any time, and will be subject to the normal peer-review process.
In fulfilment of the Foundation’s mission to promote dialogue between the worlds of performance and scholarship, the final section of the journal offers a discussion of a recent performance event, production (such as a CD, DVD, concert, or festival), edition, book, or current burning issue. Contributions to this section (of 2,500 - 5,000 words) may be freely submitted in the usual way or invited by the editors and board.
With its distinctive focus and ingredients, the Journal has a unique profile. With its emphasis on research of the highest quality, the Journal aims to count among the top journals in its field.
