Society for Music Theory

About MTO

Music Theory Online has been in continuous publication since 1993. The journal was launched experimentally in March of that year, after which issues 0.1 through 0.11 were published. Its permanent status was marked in January 1995 with the publication of Volume 1.1. MTO is peer reviewed and open access. It is indexed in RILM, Music Index, and other periodical indexes. If you value MTO and other free SMT services, please take a few moments to join SMT. Membership grants a number of benefits which non-members do not enjoy.

The Society for Music Theory also publishes the print journal Music Theory Spectrum, which is included in SMT membership.
