Submission Guidelines

Information for Authors and Publishers

Articles should be submitted electronically through the American Music online manuscript submission system: http://www.press.uillinois.edu/journals/am/amsubmissions.html.This secure, personalized resource allows users to track manuscripts through each step of the review and acceptance process. To begin, please set up a personal account and upload your submission. Your transmitted material will be reviewed as soon as possible.

Article files should be uploaded in Microsoft Word or rich text format. Use endnotes. Submitted articles should normally be approximately 20 to 40 pages, double spaced. The author's full name, mailing address, and e-mail address should appear only in the cover letter, as submissions are reviewed anonymously. Please ensure that your identity does not appear in running heads, references, or notes. Page numbers should appear at the top right of all pages after page 1. All parts of the article, including endnotes, quotations, song texts, bibliographies and discographies, appendices, and captions for illustrations, must be double spaced, with 1" margins. Music examples, figures, tables, and illustrations must be numbered and sent as separate "supplementary files" in the online upload system, with the desired location clearly indicated in the main text. Music examples need not be camera-ready. All figures or illustrations should be submitted as separate TIFF image files with image quality of at least 300 dpi. Submissions not conforming with these instructions may be returned to the author for correction prior to consideration. American Music follows the guidelines in the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style.

Books for review should be addressed to Brett Boutwell, Louisiana State University School of Music, 102 New Music Building, Baton Rouge, LA 70803-2504. Reviewers should follow the instructions provided by the Book Review Editor.
