The concept of systematic musicology was introduced in an oft-cited paper by the Austrian musicologist Guido Adler in 1885. The paper was entitled "Domain, method and aim of musicology" (in German) and proposed that musicology could be divided into two nominally equal halves, historical and systematic. Over a century later, in 1997, thanks largely to the efforts of Rudolf Flotzinger, (Professor of Musicology until 1999), the University of Graz advertised for Austria's first Professor of Systematic Musicology.
