As the new Editor-in-Chief, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Jean Penny, our previous Chief Editor, who has worked very hard towards improving the quality and standard of the articles in the Malaysian Music Journal (MMJ) since 2012. My involvement in MMJ began as the Associate Editor of the Editorial Team, as well as the Deputy Dean of Research and Graduate Studies at Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, overseeing the development and managerial processes of the journal since its launching in 2012. I seek to achieve several aims for the journal in the years ahead: to elevate the standard of the articles accepted for publication; to enhance the journal’s visibility and readership through increased indexing; as well as to promote and popularise the journal through improved mediums of dissemination. While we embrace articles on music scholarship from around the world, we hope tosource articles that would enlighten the international community on the music scene in Southeast Asian countries. Issues of competency in English, the internationally recognised language of communication, continue to hinder authors from countries in Southeast Asia from gaining global visibility of their musical scholarship.
