Polski Rocznik Muzykologiczny (Polish Musicological Yearbook) is a peer-review journal published by the Polish Composers’ Union, Warsaw, Poland (Musicological Section) with the PWM Edition in Kraków – each printed volume may be purchased at the PWM internet bookshop at The journal continues the tradition of the old Polski Rocznik Muzykologiczny, founded in 1935 by Adolf Chybiñski, only two volumes of which were published in the inter-war period. Since its revival in 2004 the PRM has been published regularly once a year. Since 2011 all issues have been available online at the journal's homepage. The cooperation with the PWM Edition started in 2016. 

The PRM is the only musicological journal in Poland which is not affiliated with any academic institution, representing instead the entire music research community. It strives to build a platform for musicologists and music theorists from diverse organisationsin Poland and abroad thanks to bilingual presentations (articles in Polish and English are published together). Our goal is to disseminate the results of Polish research internationally and, on the other hand, to present important achievements (in English and/or in translations into Polish) of international musicology in Poland.

Each year we collect contributions focused on a specific subject of the current issue (which changes yearly) with other articles – grouped into sections – covering all subdisciplines of musicology (with special focus on music and musical life in Poland in diverse historical periods) as well as phenomena placing music within an interdisciplinary perspective. Our interest in these topics stems from the awareness of specific challenges facing today’s musicology as well as transformations which our discipline has recently undergone.

The patron of Polski Rocznik Muzykologiczny is the Society of Authors ZAiKS.
