College Music Symposium: CMS Reports


The CMS Reports component of Symposium presents comprehensive and detailed discussions and in-depth analysis of topics, events, or issues that merit extended study and lengthy attention and are of broad interest to the field of music. Reports are formal, refereed collections of articles that provide analysis of an issue of historical or immediate merit.

The CMS Reports component of Symposium is particularly interested in contributions which (1) present important issues within the music profession and (2) illuminate teaching at the post-secondary level, both broadly construed. In consonance with the name, "Symposium," we encourage a collaborative approach in which a single issue is looked at from a variety of viewpoints. All subject matter and formats are acceptable when appropriate, including interview articles with important figures, perspective on historical artifacts or music works, and socio-economic analyses of the many music traditions of the world.

Collections of articles of any length are welcome. Graphics, images, video and sound files, and music examples that illuminate the text are welcome and encouraged. Please consult the guidelines for authors, as well as the instructions for submitting articles and materials for consideration. When your articles are complete, please use the online form to submit them. The receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by the Editor and notification of the report's status will be provided promptly.

Symposium cannot consider for publication anything that has been submitted simultaneously to another journal.
