'The IMR is a young institution, founded in 2006 and has quickly established itself as a national resource promoting music research of all kinds in the UK ... Our work takes various forms, including hosting conferences, study days and occasional lecture–recitals; a programme of cutting–edge research seminars (on Thursday afternoons); a series of postgraduate research training days (on Mondays); liaising with subject associations such as the Royal Musical Association and the Society for Music Analysis, and with other national resources such as the British Library; producing a twice–yearly Newsletter; hosting Visiting Fellows from the UK and overseas; involvement in online research databases such as RILM; coordination of research network funding bids; and much more besides! All branches of music research fall within our brief (including historical, analytical, textual and archival, scientific branches of "systematic musicology", ethnomusicology, music iconography, popular music, and practice–based research of all kinds).'
