About the Journal

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.
