Best Paper Award 2019: Musicologica Austriaca

– Journal for Austrian Music Studies


The Austrian Musicological Society (Österreichische Gesellschaft für Musikwis­sen­schaft) is awarding a prize for the best academic paper on the broad topic of music and musical culture in or from Austria. Researchers from all musico­logical fields and related disciplines are encouraged to participate. We welcome all methodological perspectives on music, musicians, and musical culture asso­ci­ated with Austria in a broad sense.

The unpublished article should not exceed a length of 10,000 words and must be submitted in English. The evaluation of submissions will be conducted by a jury composed of the board of directors of the Austrian Musicological Society and the award-winning paper will be published as an open-access article in Musicologica Austriaca, free of charge. Papers that make use of the possibilities of multimedia (image, audio, and video files, for example) are particularly encouraged. Any copyright issues should be clarified by the author, but this can also be done subsequent to receiving the award.

Please submit your article in English as an MS Word file to oegmw@musau.org by September 30, 2019. As the paper will be reviewed anonymously, it must not contain any indication as to the author’s identity.

The winner will receive a 1000€ prize, which will be awarded at the business meeting of the Austrian Musicological Society as part of its annual conference (Innsbruck, December 6, 2019).

If you have any further questions about the award or Musicologica Austriaca in general, please feel free to contact the editors of the journal, Dr. Alexander Wilfing (alexander.wilfing@oeaw.ac.at) and Vasiliki Papadopoulou, PhD (vasiliki.papadopoulou@oeaw.ac.at).
