Cambridge University Press is pleased to announce a new journal,
Eighteenth-Century Music, edited by Cliff Eisen (King's College London) and
W. Dean Sutcliffe (St Catharine's College, Cambridge). The reviews editor is
Simon Keefe (Queen's University, Belfast). The editorial board and advisory
panel for the journal will be found below.

The journal is intended as a forum for all eighteenth-century music research,
thus attempting to overcome the divisions so characteristic not only of the
historiography of this century but also the scholarly methodologies normally
associated with it. To this end, the editors welcome not only traditional
source, analytical, historical and performance practice studies, but also
interdisciplinary contributions, tapping into the institutional strengths of
many other areas of eighteenth-century research. In addition to standard
journal-length articles and book reviews, Eighteenth-Century Music will also
include a number of less usual features such as shorter articles (based on
the model of the 'kleine Beitr=E4ge' in some German journals: these can be
short reports on newly-discovered sources or documents, succinct analytical
observations or even kite-flying hypotheses), reviews of books, editions and
recordings, and an extensive 'communications' section intended to facilitate
better and more flexible scholarly exchange. Some of these communicative
functions will also be realized on our planned website. Further, we hope to
appeal not just to the straightforwardly academic market but also to others
who are involved in various capacities with eighteenth-century music.

The first issue will be published in early 2004 and we would be delighted to
receive submissions (four copies please) at the editorial address below, as
well as offers to review books, editions, recordings and eighteenth-century
