About International Index to Music Periodicals
International Index to Music Periodicals (IIMP) is the ultimate resource for music periodicals available on the web. It provides indexing and abstracts for over 470 international music periodicals from over 30 countries.
The database currently includes over 900,000 records, the majority of which index articles from 1996 onwards. More than 200,000 records in IIMP are from the backfile (up to 1995) and much of this coverage commences at the first issue of the journal run, some starting as early as 1874. Some complete journal runs are included, which cover the first published issue right up to the most current.
IIMP includes a comprehensive range of subject areas in both scholarly and popular music journals ranging from International Journal of Music Education, Ethnomusicology, Jazz Education Journal and Musical Times to Rock and Rap Confidential and Rolling Stone. Indexed articles cover the full spectrum of subjects and all aspects of music, including music education, performance, ethnomusicology, musical theatre, theory, popular music forms and composition. You can find articles on a diverse array of musical genres, from the liturgical chants of medieval monks to the eclectic sounds of contemporary alternative rock musicians.
IIMP is a dynamic database, with records added on a monthly basis. It will be also be regularly updated with new functionality and features. Information on the new features added recently is available on our What's New page.
