Chigiana, Journal of Musicological Studies, is a yearly peer-reviewed academic journal founded in 1939 by the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena.
Through its annual monographic issues, the journal promotes research on any musical repertoire, traditions and practices spanning different places and times, including Western Art Music, orally transmitted repertoires, technologically mediated and/or produced music, audio-visual media. While maintaining the highest scholarly standards in disseminating knowledge across the discipline, the journal aims to communicate specialist perspectives to a broader readership.
Call for articles are posted on the journal’s website. The topics, in their broad, scientific and historiographical breadth are linked to the artistic programming and to the conferences and seminars organised by the Academy. In keeping with the long-standing tradition of musicological publishing and activities promoted by the Academy, a special focus is placed on the interactions between musicology, musical practice and performance, promoting thus a crossover between different fields of research such as historical and critical musicology, music theory and analysis, practice-led research.
