In 2008, publication of the Yearbook of the Alamire Foundation was ceased in order to switch to the Journal of the Alamire Foundation, a scientific journal that appears twice a year. Its general editors are David Burn (KU Leuven), Katelijne Schiltz (Universität Regensburg, 2008‐2015) and Sarah Long (Michigan State University, 2015-), with Stratton Bull acting as coordinator for the Alamire Foundation. Quality control is assured by the general editors. They are supported by an editorial board and an advisory board that provides peer reviewing. Both boards are composed of leading academics in the field.
The Journal of the Alamire Foundation is published by Brepols Publishers. Each issue consists of three sections:
> a thematic section: about six articles on a defined theme, which may or may not be the report on a scientific gathering, and may potentially be coordinated by a guest editor;
> free contributions: about three articles selected by the general editors;
> a free essay: a reflective contribution on a project that links musicological research with music practice and relates to a theme within the scope of the Alamire Foundation’s activities.
The Journal of the Alamire Foundation is published by Brepols Publishers and has also been published as an open access publication since 2019. Since December 2020, all back issues are freely accessible.
Call for submissions
Contributions are invited 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. The standard article length is 5,000 - 10,000 words, including footnotes and other supplementary materials, although both longer and shorter contributions will be considered.
Proposals and contributions (of 2,500 - 5,000 words) to the Research and Performance Practice Forum section are also warmly invited.
The principal language of the Journal is English, but contributions are also possible in any commonly understood scholarly language.
