The Research Chronicle’s aim is to provide an avenue of publication for articles that make extensive use of apparatus such as indexes, catalogues, inventories and calendars relating to particular musicians, institutions, collections or archives. There are no set limits to the length of articles but longer articles (e.g. up to 25,000 words) are considered. Conventionally, the Research Chronicle has published in the area of historical musicology but articles from all areas of music research are now strongly encouraged. The emphasis on articles with substantial apparatus remains. All articles published in the Research Chronicle have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.
