The mission of PER MUSI – Revista Acadêmica de Música is to publish scholarly articles in Portuguese, Spanish and English which make relevant contributions to the several subareas of music, including interfaces among them and with other scientific areas. Eventually, PER MUS publishes music scores, reviews and interviews related to music research. PER MUSI is indexed bySciELO, Scopus, Elsevier, EBSCO, RILM, The Music Index and ABM (Academia Brasileira de Música). The abbreviated title PER MUSI should be used in citations. PER MUSI is published twice a year by the Graduate Program of the Music School of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), Brazil. The submission of papers is continuous throughout the year. Previous printed issues can be acquired at the address below. Free downloads are available at PER MUSI ONLINE ( Articles submitted to PER MUSI are double-blind peer-reviewed by two consultants from different area/institution than that of the author(s) and will be approved if it is approved by two consultants. In cases of reviewers’ conflicts, the Editor may interfere in the review process and ask a third review. The author(s) of the articles accepted for publication automatically transfer(s) their copyrights to PER MUSI. The first author is responsible for the content of the article, for the information that the article is original and unpublished and that the other authors of the same article are informed about the content of the article and the transfer of copyright. PER MUSI holds the right to make format and grammatical changes in the article to ensure the reader’s best comprehension.


Dear authors submitting articles and reviews to Per Musi:

1- Per Musi, a top-rated Brazilian music journal, indexed by SciELO (among other relevant databases) receives submissions and publishes original Doctoral or Post-Doctoral research papers in English preferably (but also in Portuguese and Spanish), continuously throughout the year. We strongly encourage non-native English speakers to seek for professional revision if the paper is in English. In the case of co-authorship, at least one of the co-authors must hold a Doctoral degree. Per Musi covers the main subareas of music: analysis, musicology, performance, composition, music education, music therapy, computer music etc. and their interdisciplinary interfaces.

2-Due to SciELO decision to publish only articles in the XML format (which allows for global socialization in international data bases, but requires professional digital services outside the university), we are charging this publishing cost (R$ 100 or US$ 30) from authors of approved texts. Other costs of the editorial process are free. Also, Per Musi provides published articles with the DOI number (Digital Object Identification, which facilitates worldwide access to the article) for free.

3- This Per Musi template (see below) must be followed strictly by authors submitting papers to the editorial process. Submitted papers that do not follow Per Musi guidelines will be moved to the end of the submission line. Copy each part of your paper from your original file (title, author(s), institution, e-mail, abstract, keywords, number and title of sections, number and title of subsections, text paragraphs, figures, captions, references, footnotes etc.) and paste into the correspondent space of the template (or highlight each part and use de correspondent box in the “Styles” menu of the template). Do not use your original file or your own template to send your article.
