Notes for contributors
Submissions should be sent to the Editors:
Dr Caroline Bithell, School of Music, University of Wales, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 2DG; e-mail:
Dr Janet Topp Fargion, British Library National Sound Archive, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB;
The order of preference for submission format is:
1. a Rich Text Format (.RTF) file, either as an e-mail attachment or on a PC disk, plus one hard copy;
2. two hard copies.
When saving final versions of their files in RTF format authors should disable "fast save" and should
"accept tracked changes". Hard copies must be printed on one side only on A4 paper, with ample
margins and double-spacing throughout. Authors must also supply a list of words requiring diacritical
accents. Tables, maps, photographs, music examples and other illustrative materials should be presented
on separate sheets. Authors must eventually supply "camera-ready" copy to professional standard of all
illustrative materials; the editors will advise on the preparation of such materials if necessary. Graphics
may be supplied in digital form as EPS, PDF or TIFF files (not GIF or JPEG). A list of captions must be
provided on separate sheets. Authors must obtain approval, before submission, for reproduction of any
material not their own.
All manuscripts must be accompanied by an abstract of 50 to 80 words and a short note on the
contributor (including contact address), both to be included in the Journal. Authors of articles will
receive one copy of the Journal and five offprints free of charge; authors of reviews will receive a single
offprint. Purchase of further offprints may be possible on request.
It would be helpful if contributors were to bear in mind the following points:
1. Quotations: Use double quotation marks, but single within quotations.
2. Figures: All figures, tables, charts and musical examples should be referred to as "Figures",
numbered successively and referred to in the text.
3. Spelling and terminology: UK spelling and usage will be employed.
4. Initial capital letters: Use upper case as seldom as possible in bibliographies, mostly as initial letters
in proper nouns and in journal titles. In the text, use upper case in referring to "Figure 3", and lower
case for "section 1.2", "verse 2", etc.
5. Numerals: Use elided numbers for pages and dates, e.g. 25-8, 136-42, but 12-16; 1980-81,
1914-18. Use numerals for percentages, measurement and for ages, e.g. 25%, 12 km, 5 m, 10 years
old. For other numbers in text, write out in full between one and ten; thereafter use numerals.
6. Italics: Use mainly for book titles and foreign words and phrases. Do not italicize et al., e.g., c., i.e.,
ibid. and similar short elements.
7. Footnotes: Keep footnotes to a minimum by including materials within the main text where possible.
8. References: should be cited within the text, listing the author's last name, year of publication and
page number, e.g. (Blacking 1973:52); where an author's name has just been cited in the text,
references need be made only to date and page, e.g. (1973:52). Two works of identical date by one
author should be distinguished as, e.g., 1987a and 1987b. Avoid the expressions op. cit. and loc. cit..
Full references should be given on a separate sheet alphabetically by author and chronologically for
each author, using the style shown below, giving authors' full names, publishers' names for books,
and page numbers for articles and book chapters.
