The Malaysian Music Journal is a fully peer-reviewed academic journal that highlights music scholarship and related activities with a particular focus on the ASEAN region. It is a forum for academics, graduate and post-graduate students, professionals, and associates who wish to share their music research. Whilst the journal is based in Malaysia, articles with broad global focus are welcome. We invite submissions of original articles from a wide spectrum of research areas, including multiple areas of musicology, music education, performance, ethnography, composition, music technology, sound art, indigenous music and cultural studies. Publication is bi-annual.

Submission Requirements
Submission of an article to the Malaysian Music Journal is held to imply that it represents an original contribution not previously published, and that it is not being considered elsewhere. All submissions must conform to our published guidelines. A flexibility of presentation mode may be accepted for practice-led and based research articles, notwithstanding an imperative of strong academic writing standards. Articles may be submitted in either English or Bahasa Melayu.

The deadline for submission for Volume 7 Number 1 is March 1, 2018.
