The purpose of the Journal of Music Teacher Education, a peer-reviewed journal, is to disseminate information about the National Association for Music Educators' Society for Music Teacher Education (SMTE) and the ways that SMTE can strengthen teacher education, to serve as a clearinghouse for ideas among professors of music education, and to effect a sense of unity among them. The journal, a publication of NAfME, welcomes manuscripts for possible publication.
Unless specifically noted, articles in JMTE do not necessarily represent the official policy of the National Association for Music Education.
When submitting an article, contributors should adhere to the following guidelines:
All articles must be related to music teacher education. Manuscripts may be of a philosophical, historical, descriptive, experimental, or methodological nature. Two general types of submissions are considered: projects producing new data (research articles) and papers having underpinnings in research, but not resulting in new data, that expand the knowledge base of the profession (interest articles). All articles should include discussion of implications for teacher educators.
All articles should include an abstract of approximately 150 words, be double-spaced, and not exceed twenty pages in length. Authors should also submit key words relating to their article's content. Manuscript style should conform to the most recent edition of the Publications Manual of the American Psychological Association and follow the NAfME Publication/Presentation Code of Ethics. Articles describing research should comply with institutional and federal regulations in the treatment of human subjects.
Articles should be unique and not published elsewhere. It is considered unethical to send articles for consideration to multiple journals at the same time.
Articles should be submitted with all institutional names or other identifying information removed from the body of the article in order to facilitate blind review.
Music examples, figures, photographs, and other illustrations must be checked for accuracy before submission. If any copyrighted materials are used, documentation verifying that the author has permission to use the material must be included. Please complete a Request for Permission to Reprint Material form.
Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to publish any author-submitted photographs or illustrations, and written permission to SAGE of a parent or guardian of any minor pictured is needed before such images are published. Please complete an Audio/Visual Likeness Release form.
All manuscripts must be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmte
Strategic Plan: Authors are encouraged to review the NAfME Strategic Plan at http://musiced.nafme.org/files/2012/04/2011stratplanfinal.pdf to consider ways in which their manuscript might address one or more areas of the strategic plan (Research, Advocacy, Serving the Profession and the Music Educator, and NAfME Organizational Vitality).
