Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology

Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology (DDM) is an international database of bibliographic records for completed dissertations and new dissertation topics in the fields of musicology, music theory, and ethnomusicology, as well as in related musical, scientific, and humanistic disciplines. Currently containing over 16,000 records, including the corrected and updated contents of all earlier printed editions of Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology and supplements contributed from musicological centers throughout the world, the database is fully searchable.

This implementation of DDM was prepared by Durrell Bowman in 2010. Click here for further information about DDM and a short history of the project.

Please note that DDM does not include the dissertations themselves. It does, however, include references to RILM, Dissertation Express, publication details, and internet availability, when this information has been provided by authors. RILM references include abstracts; Dissertation Express facilitates purchasing copies of dissertations.

Dissertations awarded by UK institutions are listed in the British Library’s EThOS E-Theses database. Over 100,000 are available for immediate, free download. For many others, you can order a scanned copy (charges may apply)

The AMS is very grateful to people and institutions who have worked hard to make DDM a useful research tool: Durrell Bowman, Peter Slemon, Thomas Mathiesen, Alis Dickinson, Cecil Adkins, Helen Hewitt, Indiana University, and the University of North Texas.
