Instructions to Contributors

How to Submit an Article

1. Articles should be word processed and formatted on 8 1/2” x 11” paper, double-spaced, with all tables, music examples, photographs, and art work submitted as the author intends them to be printed. Please utilize Microsoft Word and be certain that the file has a .doc or .docx suffix. Please use endnotes rather than footnotes; do not embed a code for endnotes, please use superscripts in the text and type the endnotes separately. You may also elect to use an Author-Date citation method in accordance with Turabian or APA.

2. Style and format of the articles should adhere as closely as possible to current editions of Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, (Chicago: University of Chicago Press). Empirical studies in music education, however, should conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, (Washington, D.C.: American Psychological Association).

3. The current physical address, phone number, and e-mail address of the author must be included in your email submission to facilitate direct communication and to enable the sending of a complimentary copy of the Journal if published.

4. A brief 200 word or less biographical sketch of the author must be included in a Microsoft Word file separate from the article file.

5. Submitting an article indicates that it has not been published previously nor is it currently submitted for publication elsewhere, either in its entirety or in part.
