AMP: American Music Perspectives welcomes manuscripts from a variety of cultural and theoretical perspectives, while also considering traditional, biographical, historical, and archival studies of American music and its artists, composers, genres, and practitioners. AMP also welcomes interpretive analyses of American music, as well as manuscripts that investigate its sociocultural production, its political manifestations, and the history of the business practices and technological innovations associated with its development.

AMP recognizes that the history of American music draws on a complex and diverse tapestry of forms and styles, ranging from the indigenous sounds of Native American life and the Christian hymnody of European settlers to the gospel and blues originally propagated by West African slaves, the Cajun and Creole music of Louisiana, and the Polynesian sounds inherent in Hawaiian music. Twentieth-century American music proved to be even more fecund, with the apotheosis of Ragtime, Tex-Mex and Tejano music, country and western, Tin Pan Alley, jazz, concert, rockabilly, rock and roll, funk, disco, punk, hip-hop, and electronica, among a host of other phenomena.
