The International Review of the Aesthetics and Sociology of Music features original scholarly articles on music aesthetics, the sociology of music, the social history of music, and the history of ideas in music. The journal has been published since 1970, with articles written in English, French, and German. In addition to articles, it features reviews, announcements and reports on conferences.
The Croatian Musicological Society (CMS) was founded in 1992 to promote musicological studies in Croatia. At present it has approximately 210 members in Croatia and abroad. The Society sponsors national and international conferences and lectures, and holds annual meetings. The CMS publishes the twice-yearly journals International Review of the Aesthetics and Sociology of Music and the Croatian musicological review Arti musices, as well as series of proceedings (multilingual), monographical studies (in Croatian), music catalogues (Croatian-English), and scores (Indices collectiorum musicarum tabulariorumque in Croatia).
