Focus and Scope

Indiana Theory Review is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal publishing articles and reviews covering all facets of music theory and analysis. It is produced by the graduate students of the Department of Music Theory at the Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University, Bloomington.

Peer Review Process

All submitted articles are subject to a rigorous process of double-blind peer review. Occasionally, commissioned contributions from eminent scholars are not reviewed.

Journal History

Indiana Theory Review was founded in 1977 and we believe it to be the oldest student-produced music journal. In its four decades of operation, ITR has established itself as an important venue for scholarly music-theoretical discourse and has provided an opportunity for publication to both established and emerging theorists.
