Judging by the sparse presence of Serbian music periodicals in American libraries, one would think that little musicological activity is happening in Serbia; however, the number of scholarly periodicals published there, and the broad scope of articles they include, project a rather different picture. Zbornik Malice Srpske za scenske umetnosti i muziku (Matica Srpska Review of Stage Art and Music), published annually since 1987, brings articles on a variety of historical topics, including an issue published in 2000 entirely dedicated to Serbian Orthodox music. Novi zvuk and its parallel English-language edition New Sound, published semi-annually since 1993, include general essays about Serbian music history and traditional music, though their dominating features are essays about contemporary musical scenes in Serbia and analytical essays about works by contemporary Serbian composers. In Muzicki talas, published with interruptions since 1994, the space is shared by large-scale essays about Serbian music history and translations of musicological essays originally published in (mostly) German and English periodicals. The newest addition to this plethora is Muzikologija: casopis Muzikoloskog instituta Srpske akademije nauka i umetnosti, initiated in 2001. The journal's publisher, the Institute of Musicology of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, is the leading institution for research in the history of Serbian religious and secular music, as well as traditional music culture which, since its founding in 1948, has issued a significant number of monographs on music, conference proceedings, and scores.

Each volume of Muzikologija published so far is dedicated to an overall topic: "Music between the Two World Wars" (2001); "Correspondences among Musicians" (2002); "Musical Migrations" (2003); and "Influences and Intercontextuality in Music" (forthcoming 2004). Within these topics are counterposed essays-by both Serbian and international authors -on Serbian music and related issues in music cultures of other nations.

The first issue was dominated by essays presenting different views about Serbian music between the two world wars, with contributions about the situation during that period in Romania and France. …
