Author Guidelines

Articles should be between 2000 and 6000 words, typed, double spaced, single-sided, and sent in triplicate on 8 x 11 paper with standard margins. Please include a cover letter indicating name and contact information (including email). A cover letter should accompany the submission. Submissions are reviewed anonymously; therefore the author’s  name should appear only in the cover letter which should include the  author's e-mail address

 Musical examples or other illustrations may appear in the body of the paper or  may follow  as appendices.  They must be clearly labelled. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reprint copyrighted material. The Editorial Board reserves the right to place examples as publication layout requires and to make other editorial suggestions.

Contributors are requested to refer to the Chicago Manual of Style 14th ed, or Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 6th ed., for general matters of style and  citation. Titles and foreign terms should be italicized.

If accepted for publication, authors should submit their final draft, preferably in Microsoft Word, in any electronic format. Authors should also be prepared to submit a short biography (50-80 words) and an abstract  (250 words) for inclusion in the journal.
