About This Journal

Performance Practice Review (PPR) honors the memory of its Founding Editor, Professor Roland Jackson (1925–2015).

PPR is a blind, peer-reviewed, open access journal devoted to the study of Western musical performance practices. It is not confined to any historical period. PPR was originally published bi-annually from 1988 to 1997 (volumes 1–10, ISSN 1044-1638), with Roland Jackson serving as Editor-in-Chief. These print issues also appear on this site. Contributions to PPR accepted from 2006 onward are published exclusively online (ISSN 2166-8205), on a rolling basis. Robert Zappulla is the current Editor-in-Chief.
