The compilation of twelve volumes documenting music and musical life in Europe and the United States during the first half of the twentieth century.

While an “urgent need” for the retrospective indexing of music periodicals has been recognized since the 1930s it was not before the early 1980s that RIPM was established to undertake this task. Initially focusing on 19th-century music journals, RIPM has, since 1988, produced 173 volumes and an online database of some 450,000 annotated records. In 2003, RIPM expanded its scope to 1950 and took the first significant step toward filling the widely-acknowledged “access gap” in music periodical literature published between 1900 and the beginning of the modern indexing projects (1949). This grant would permit RIPM to continue its work on 20th-century music periodicals, and to produce twelve volumes and the equivalent data in electronic formats.
