About the Journal
The Malaysian Journal of Music (MJM), previously known as the Malaysian Music Journal (MMJ) (2012-2017), is a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal that highlights music research and scholarship. It is a forum for music scholars to critically discuss issues related to music. Whilst the journal is based in Malaysia, articles from any region with thereotically robust and empirically engaging content are welcomed. We invite submissions of original articles from a wide spectrum of research areas including musicology, ethnomusicology, music education, performance, composition, music technology, popular music, music therapy and music business. Multidisciplinary research that includes music is also welcomed. Our journal publishes articles in Bahasa Melayu and English annually.
Submission of an article to the Malaysian Journal of Music 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.
The Malaysian Journal of Music publishes only one volume per year. However, the number of articles published vary according to publishibilty during the year. We call for papers at the beginning of the year and there are specific deadlines for submission every year.
