History of the Journal - the world of music (new series)

 

the world of music (new series) is a continuation of the journal the world of music edited from 1988 to 2007 by Max Peter Baumann at the International Institute for Traditional Music (IITM), Berlin, since 1997 as Journal of the Department of Ethnomusicology at Otto-Friedrich University of Bamberg. From 2008 to 2009 the world of music was edited by Jonathan Stock at the University of Sheffield.

The history of the journal began in 1959, when it was founded as the world of music. Bulletin of the International Music Council edited by John Evarts. In 1967, it turned into the world of music. Quarterly Journal of the International Music Council (UNESCO) in Association with the International Institute for Comparative Music Studies and Documentation (Berlin), still edited up to 1974 by John Evarts.

Since the foundation of the International Institute for Comparative Music Studies and Documentation (IICMSD), Berlin, in 1963, the journal had been hosted by this institution, which was later renamed in International Institute for Traditional Music (IITM). From 1975-87 the journal was edited by its director Ivan Vandor (1975-87) and then by his successor Max Peter Baumann beginning with the year 1988.

When the International Institute for Traditional Music was closed in 1997, Max Peter Baumann continued the editorship and brought, until 2007, the journal to the Department of Ethnomusicology at the University of Bamberg. Since 1996 the journal has been published by the VWB-Verlag für Wissenschaft und Bildung, Berlin.

From 2008 to 2009, Jonathan Stock assumed the editorship and the journal moved to the Ethnomusicology Programme at the University of Sheffield.

In 2012, the title of the journal was renamed into the world of music (new series) and Birgit Abels took over the editorship at the Department of Musicology at the Georg August University Göttingen. Barbara Titus is now serving as co-editor, Eva-Maria van Straaten as book reviews editor, and Rehanna Kheshgi as recording reviews editor.

With the renaming of the title, the journal received a new ISSN (0043-8774).
