The Editorial & Research Board of the Journal of the Conductors Guild has an ongoing need for articles and proposals germane to the art, science and history of conducting. You may submit an article or proposal at any time.
Write for readers who have expertise in diverse areas of music and conducting, and are interested in broadening their knowledge of current research and writing in the field. Write in a readable, lucid style; avoid jargon and try whenever possible to avoid technical terms not understandable to informed musicians. If you must use technical terms, carefully define each at the point in the text where the term is first used. In general, articles should be between fifteen and twenty double-spaced, typed pages in length. For style questions and citation formats, consult the Modern Language Association (MLA) style manual. All questions regarding the appropriateness of a proposal or article should be sent to the address below.
A proposal for an article should include a one-page summary of the article and a statement of its significance. Articles must be submitted electronically by email.
