The American Musicological Society, in collaboration with Oxford University Press, is pleased to sponsor the series AMS Studies in Music. This series seeks to support and promote outstanding and innovative musicological scholarship drawn from the widest possible range of perspectives and areas of inquiry that will appeal to a broad scholarly audience. Submissions that explore musical issues from any historical, theoretical, or ethnomusicological perspective are welcome. All books receive a subsidy from the AMS.
Authors should submit a detailed proposal explaining the substance and importance of their work, the content of each chapter, the current status of the study, and a projected date for completion of the manuscript. Along with the proposal they should also submit one or more sample chapters.
An electronic copy of the proposal and sample chapters should be sent to:
