ECHO: A Music-Centered Journal is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal created and edited by graduate students in the Department of Musicology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). It was published biannually from when it was established in 1999 to 2004 and more sporadically since that time. One of the highlights of the journal is its accessibility to readers with limited to no formal music training, made possible by the use of video and audio files as supplements or replacements for music examples in standard notation.
Critical Musicology, hosted by the School of Music at the University of Leeds, is a fully refereed critical musicology journal appearing exclusively on the Internet from 1997 to 1998. Its purpose is to provide a library of texts which address the wide number of issues that have become part of the field of critical musicology. Given the diverse number of practices within critical musicology, Critical Musicology is designed to encompass a plurality of topics, discourses, and methodologies. Rather than dogmatically adopting a single party line, its purpose here is one of pragmatic, inclusive multiplicity.
