The Journal of Film Music (ISSN: 1087-7142), provides an interdisciplinary 
forum for scholars in music, film and other disciplines who share a common 
interest in this vital new area of scholarly inquiry.  Though now 
represented in mainstream journals in music, film, the media, and mass 
communication, scholarly writing on film music is currently dispersed 
across many publications throughout the world.  By providing a scholarly 
journal devoted to the subject, the interdisciplinary work of film music 
studies can flourish.  Contributions encompassing all aspects of film 
music history, analysis, theory, and criticism are welcome. The website of 
the Journal can be found at
