Yearbook of Music Psychology

The Yearbook of Music Psychology (Jahrbuch Musikpsychologie) was founded in 1984 by Klaus-Ernst Behne, Günter Kleinen and Helga de la Motte-Haber. It serves as the official scientific publication of the proceedings of the German Society for Music Psychology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Musikpsychologie, DGM). The Yearbook of Music Psychology follows international scientific standards and publishes empirical and theoretical contributions in German and English language from all areas of music psychology as well as from related disciplines such as music sociology, music education and musical acoustics.

Since 2018, the Yearbook of Music Psychology (JBGDM) has been published as an online first publication with open access to all content in cooperation with the PsychOpen portal of the Leibniz Center for Psychological Information and Documentation (ZPID). Submitted manuscripts are published by PsychOpen immediately after a successful peer-review process. In addition, the contributions also appear as a printed publication by Waxmann Verlag (Münster, Germany) once a year. The bound volume also contains additional book reviews and conference reports. For more information please visit:

We are committed to open access to scientific research and its free dissemination. Therefore, both the use of our content for readers, as well as the submission, review, and publication of contributions for authors are free of charge!
