By chance I encountered this tutorial in German: "Musikwissenschaft mit LATEX". It investigates on 121 pages various ways to typeset notes and scientific notations. In contrast to latex4musicians it focuses on scientific publications, e.g. with functional analysis, looks at front- and backends and workflows. (Subtitle translated: How to integrate music examples with open source tools in scientific documents)

I like it. But it might not be accessible to anybody in our community, interested in typesetting music.

It looks like the author (Karsten Reinecke) provided this on Github: Musicology in and with LaTeX - a self referantial tutorial, written in German

So: Are there similar publications in English?

  • Unfortunately that‘s the one I cited, with remarks. So, no, that’s not matching.
