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. 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 6th edition of the Publications Manual of the American Psychological Association (2010). 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.
