The journal Bašćinski glasi is the only ethnomusicological journal in the Republic of Croatia. It is published by the Academy of Arts of the University of Split, and was founded in 1991 by Nikola Buble, an ethnomusicologist and long-time professor at the Academy of Arts. It has since been published continuously, for some time as a double issue; to date, more than 200 contributions have been published.
Permanent sections are: scientific articles, reviews, presentations, analyses, abstracts and parts of doctoral dissertations thematically related to Croatian musical heritage. The topics of the articles are traditional, historical, archival and analytical in the field of humanities, but the journal is also open to articles from related fields of social sciences that have common ground in music culture.
The journal predominantly contains papers in Croatian with abstracts in English, but texts are also received and published in foreign languages.
All accepted scientific papers must go through two blind peer reviews. Authors are not charged any costs; papers have open access at the journal’s website.
The full text of the papers can be used for personal or educational purposes while respecting the copyrights of the authors and publishers.
The journal is published annually; articles are accepted until May 15, and the issue is published in December of the current year.
