The Journal of the American Liszt Society (JALS) is published annually. It contains articles on research topics related to Liszt, especially his work, interests, ideals, and legacy. The Journal is intended for performers and scholars alike, often including articles that focus on history, analysis, performance practice. Reviews of outstanding monographs, edited collections, sheet music, and recordings related to Liszt and his world also appear.

The European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) has listed the Journal of the American Liszt Society on its list of composer-oriented standard international journals "with a good reputation among researchers of the field in different countries." Among the criteria for inclusion is the selection of articles, which must be based on an objective review policy. Quality control is normally to be achieved through peer review. The journal must also fulfill basic publishing standards. This is a first for JALS.

Each member receives one issue of the Journal and two Newsletters each year. From time to time membership lists are compiled and published, often as an addendum to the Journal or the Newsletter.

To submit articles, reviews, and the like, or for any question about the Journal, please contact the JALS Editor, Jonathan Kregor at JALS Editor.
