Music Research: International Index to Music Periodicals

A guide to the basics of doing research in music.

International Index to Music Periodicals

IIMP is a relative newcomer to music periodical indexing. Provides current indexing, including subject headings and abstracts, for over 400 periodicals. The backfile, which includes neither subjects nor abstracts, is more selective, indexing a smaller number of titles, as far back as 1874. For more information, see

IIMP Full Text includes the full text of 130 journals. Full text varies from a few years in some cases to complete runs in others. See: The only major periodical index in music to offer full-text searching.

B-W does not own IIMP in any form.
