General Publication Information
The NABMSA Newsletter is distributed to NABMSA membership and is currently published twice a year, once in the spring and once in the autumn. We encourage submissions of materials including articles on recent and upcoming NABMSA events; general NABMSA information; calls for papers for conferences and publications in related areas; employment notices for jobs in areas of interest to members, including both academic and non-academic positions; notices of recent books, articles, scores, and recordings of interest to members; and editiorals or articles regarding issues of concern or interest to members.
In order to be able to include as much information as possible in a reader-friendly format, we have established this style guide to help you in preparing materials for the NABMSA Newsletter. If you are not a member and are interested in receiving the newsletter, see our membership form or contact one of the NABMSA officers for further information.
Materials are accepted on a continuous basis; however, please note that in order for materials to be considered for inclusion in the Newsletter, they must be received at least four weeks prior to the Newsletter release date. Thus, for inclusion in the April 15, 2005 Newsletter, please have your copy to the Editor no later than March 15. For the September 15, 2005 Newsletter, materials are due by August 15. If you have late-breaking news or CFP information, please sent it in as soon as possible and we will try to accommodate it.
Format of Materials
Please submit materials in MSWord or a compatible format, double-spaced, with the author’s complete contact information at the top of the first page. Please use a common font, such as Times New Roman or Arial. Graphics, including photos and music examples, must be submitted as separate files in jpg or gif format. Materials may be sent via e-mail attachment (preferred) or on a CD or DVD. Please do not send hard copy or floppy discs.
The NABMSA Newsletter will use the Chicago Manual of Style as its usage guide. Although we study British music, the Newsletter will follow the standards for American, rather than British, English spelling, punctuation, and other written-word conventions. However, if your spell-checker prefers "colour" to "color" and you use single quotes as a matter of habit, don’t worry: we’ll make the necessary edits prior to publication.
Materials for inclusion in the Newsletter should be sent to Kendra Preston Leonard.
