Focus and Scope

In the spring of 2004 the musicology graduate students at the University of Victoria launched the journal Musicological Explorations with the particular aim of providing a forum for graduate student publication. Formerly known as Fermata, the new title reflected our mandate to encourage a broad spectrum of musicological research, as well as interdisciplinary work relating to the field of musicology -- a mandate which continues to direct the journal today.
