  • The purpose of the Journal of Music Teacher Education, a peer-reviewed journal, is to disseminate information about the National Association for Music Education’s 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 affect 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:

    Two general types of submissions are considered: research articles and interest articles. Authors of research article manuscripts may use any inquiry-based methodology where data are analyzed and findings reported, including philosophical, historical, quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods. Manuscripts based on content analyses of existing artifacts or analyses of existing large data sets also are considered research articles. Interest articles may have underpinnings in research, but authors primarily seek to expand the knowledge base of the profession by exploring educational theories, instructional models, or critical issues. Literature reviews may function as interest articles to the extent that authors effectively synthesize a body of research (through meta-analysis or a comprehensive qualitative critique) to make an argument, illustrate trends, or advance theory. Regardless of type, all manuscripts must be pertinent to music teacher education and include a discussion of implications for teacher educators.

    All manuscripts should include a double-spaced abstract of approximately 150 words; authors should also submit key words that reflect manuscript content. The complete manuscript, including narrative, block quotations, references, and any tables or figures (all double-spaced) is typically 20 pages in length. Manuscript style should conform to the 7th edition of the Publications Manual of the American Psychological Association (2020). For example, manuscripts should use 12-point Times New Roman font with 1-inch margins and paragraphs indented ½ inch.  The abstract should appear on a separate page and references should begin on a new page.

    Manuscripts should follow the National Association for Music Education’s (NAfME) Publication/Presentation Code of Ethics (http://www.nafme.org/my-classroom/journals-magazines/journal-of-research-in-music-education-code-of-ethics/). As part of the online submission cover letter, authors of manuscripts based on human subject research must report how they satisfied institutional and federal regulations in the treatment of study participants.

    Manuscripts should be submitted with all institutional names or other identifying information removed from the body of the article 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 and submit a Request for Permission to Reprint Materials form (https://www.sagepub.com/sites/default/files/upm-binaries/26379_RequestForPermissionForm.pdf).

    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 and submit an Audio/Visual Likeness Release form (https://www.sagepub.com/sites/default/files/upm-binaries/45820_Audio_Visual_Likeness_Release_Form.pdf).

    Please note that this journal does not allow submissions from papers that are already available as a preprint. Prior to submission, authors should rigorously proofread manuscripts for basic writing quality issues (e.g., anthropomorphism, subject-verb agreement, redundant word use or sentence structure, etc.); failure to do so often slows the revision process and time to publication. Authors can use supplemental services for writing offered by SAGE and other third-party providers.

    All manuscripts must be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmte

    As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.

    The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

    If you do not already have an ORCID iD please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.
