Journal of World Popular Music

Equinox Publishing

"Popular Music History publishes original historical and historiographical research that draws on the wide range of disciplines and intellectual trajectories that have contributed to the establishment of popular music studies as a recognized academic enterprise. Articles that challenge established orthodoxies in popular music studies, examine the formation and dissolution of canons, interrogate histories of genres, focus on forms of popular music that have existed below the "historical radar," and engage in archaeologies of popular music history, are particularly welcome. The philosophy of Popular Music History is to encourage research that is empirically grounded. However, the journal's historical orientation is not intended to be exclusive. Articles that concentrate on historical and historiographical issues that draw on music analysis, incorporate cultural theory, or engage in the ‘history of the present’, are also appropriate. In addition to the reviews section, a distinctive feature of Popular Music History is its section on Resources. Resources re-publishes articles of historical importance that have become difficult to find or unjustifiably obscure, report on archives, museums and scholarly collections of particular importance to writing popular music history, and serve as a forum for the discussion of issues of special interest to popular music histories." - Equinox Publishing

Perfect Beat: The Asia-Pacific Journal of Research Into Contemporary Music and Popular Culture

Equinox Publishing

"The journal's name derived from Afrika Bambaata and the Soul Sonic Force's 12-inch, 1983 single Looking for the Perfect Beat. The journal's association with the popular cultural quest and mixed, eclectic references of the song are reflected in the articles that have appeared so far which have often concerned themselves with 'world beat' and/or 'world music' and the marketing of non-western musics in the western market and the analysis of local music production. As befits a journal originating in Australia, the journal remains focussed on the popular music of the 'Pacific rim' and includes historical and contemporary studies with contributions invited from popular music studies, musicology, cultural studies and ethnomusicological perspectives. A common theme in many of the articles published has been the development of new styles of popular music by indigenous peoples and their relationships (beneficial and/or problematic) with the technologies and institutions of the 20th Century media and music industries.The principal contribution of indigenous musicians and cultural activists to the journal has been through their collaboration as interviewees and/or co-authors of individual studies. The editors of the journal have endeavoured to maintain a continuing relationship with musicians, communities and cultural groups who have been the subject of study - distributing copies of the publication to interested individuals and bodies, and publishing research updates on previous material (often at the invitation/instigation of the subjects of the preceding research)." - Equinox Publishing
