Week 4 – Publishing_Presentation Project

Sunday, October 23, 2011

t’s settled.  I want to publish something for music educators.  I’m going to shoot for MTNA’s e-journal.  I chose this publication because it seems like a blend of formal research and practical educator applications.  I also chose it because of the format.  The whole intent of the e-journal is to include more multi-media into the reader’s experience.  Past volumes have included links to the researchers’ blogs and videos.  I may be offer something unique in that my research was documented online through the Challenge Based-Research method.


MTNA also has a monthly teacher publication called “American Music Teacher”, which might also be for consideration.  It’s their well-established monthly magazine, which is not as research oriented.  Currently I am contacting the publishing director for more information about submission guidelines for the e-journal.  This may lead to a query letter for either publication to see if there’s any interest in the nature of my research.

It is not only difficult to write the paper for publication but then finding one to publish it in.  I’m still trying to decide between 2 myself.  my paper is in need of some rework as it is a bit long.  I think your approach to talk with the director is a great idea.
