CALL FOR NOMINATIONS Music Therapy Perspectives Editorial Board

November 1, 2023 07:38 PM


We are currently seeking nominations for appointment of persons to the Editorial Board of Music Therapy Perspectives (MTP) for a 6-year term. Editorial board members read and evaluate submitted manuscripts and serve in an advisory capacity to the Lead Editor, Associate Editors, and Assistant Editor. MTP editorial Board members review manuscripts that are typically within their area of research/clinical expertise yet may also be asked to review manuscripts for which their different lens and experience would be valuable. Depending on submission volume, Editorial Board members review between two and eight manuscripts a year. Potential candidates may have a range of areas of expertise, including clinical practice, research, scholarly writing, and clinical supervision. Evidence of scholarly publication by peer review is preferred but not required.

Expectations for MTP peer reviewers are:

- Accept invitations to review, including revisions of previously reviewed manuscripts;

- Adhere to timelines for the peer review process;

- Attend board meetings (in person or via Zoom) or, if not available, watch a recording of a meeting;

- Engage in discussions centered on articles that support or enhance understanding of peer review purposes and the necessity of integrating diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, and access into the review process; and

- Commit to writing reviews that are constructive and supportive.

Anyone may nominate an individual for this service to the Journal by sending a letter of nomination and a vita documenting the expertise of the nominee. Applicants may also self-nominate, sending a cover letter and vita or resume.

Nominations are due by November 20, 2023 and should be sent electronically to:

Suzi Mandel, Assistant Editor
