The Journal of Interdisciplinary Music Studies (JIMS) is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal. It aims to establish a broad interdisciplinary platform for music researchers. JIMS especially promotes collaborations between sciences and humanities, and provocative submissions that stimulate interdisciplinary discussion. JIMS is unique among international music research journals in its coverage of all epistemological approaches to all musical issues.

JIMS aims to contribute towards an understanding of music in all its manifestations, definitions and contexts, to promote interdisciplinary synergy among humanities and sciences, and to promote academic quality and the application of research findings.
