Guidelines for VOICEPrints Submissions

Submission Procedure

VOICEPrints is the Official Journal of NYTSA. We encourage submissions on topics related to voice and vocal pedagogy, including (but not limited to) repertoire, style, science, technology, and the music business. Please submit your submissions in Word document form (Times New Roman, 12-point, and double-spaced) through the submission form. In addition to the article, a 200-word biography and JPEG headshot should be submitted for publication alongside the article.
 

Approval/Rejection

The Editor-in-Chief, with the assistance of his or her Associate Editors, will approve or reject the submission within 60 days. If accepted for publication, the article will usually appear in print within 1–2 years (5–10 issues). 
 

Remuneration

There is no monetary remuneration for VOICEPrints articles, but we are happy to run biographies and announce recent publications and achievements of authors.
 

Length 

VOICEPrints articles vary in length, generally ranging from 1000 to 3000 words.
 

Spacing, Italics, and Capitalization

Please insert only one space between sentences (not two). Italics should be used for major works or titles of books (as opposed to underlining). Capitalization of titles should conform to Chicago Manual of Style usage.
 

Images

Please include all images in high-resolution JPEG format. 
 

Citations 

VOICEPrints prefers endnotes or footnotes. Chicago style is best (no APA or MLA).
 

Numbers

Please spell out numerals one through twenty. Numbers 21 and higher should be written in numeral format.
 

IPA and Symbols

International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and musical symbols (sharps and flats, etc.) are welcome as long as they are in Unicode format and do not require a special font.
 

Permissions

It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that all submitted materials and images are the original work of the author. If quotations or images are used from another source, appropriate permissions must be sought and documented.
 

Ownership

All published articles become the property of NYSTA for internet distribution, archiving, and reprinting purposes. In most cases, NYSTA will be happy to grant the author permission to republish or rework the article for another publication, but permission should be sought in writing and the original publication in VOICEPrints should be acknowledged.
