Greek and Roman Musical Studies is a new peer-reviewed journal, available electronically and in print, published by Brill Publishers. It describes itself as "the first specialist periodical in the fields of ancient Greek and Roman music," and publishes articles focused not only on the music of ancient Greece and Rome but also its reception during other points in history. Discussion on the music of other Mediterranean regions is also considered for publication. The first issue has just been released this year, and it contains papers catering to a wide array of disciplines reaching well beyond those of a strictly musical nature. Topics include several archaeological accounts of a musician's burial site in Athens, an acoustic analysis of recovered instruments of the time, and the use of voice in speech by authoritative Roman figures. Also included are several book reviews, and an editorial. Members of the editorial board largely represent European institutions; papers in languages other than English are accepted, and the first issue does contain one article in French. The wide range of disciplinary foci, in addition to the possible coverage of multiple geographic areas and in multiple languages, suggests that this publication will provide research of interest to a wide array of readers. At the same time, it is too early to tell if each issue will consistently provide material of specific interest for researchers of any one of these particular fields.
