Article Submission Guidelines
- Please submit articles, news of interest, obituaries, and other items to be considered for print via the “Submit an Article or News to the Double Reed” button found at the top of this page.
- For questions concerning oboe or bassoon-related articles, email Ryan Romine at email@example.com.
- Specific fonts and/or spacing are not required, as articles will be reformatted for printing.
- The preferred file format is .doc or .docx.
- Endnotes are preferable to footnotes.
- There is no length limitation, though the editors may later request/suggest cuts.
- Thesis/document/treatise chapters should be adequately introduced and closed so as to stand alone as a journal article.
- Articles should include the author’s name, location (city, state), a short bio (2-4 sentences), and, when possible, a high-resolution digital photograph of the author.
- Accompanying graphics/photographs should be the highest available resolution.
- When possible, graphics/photographs should be embedded in the .doc or .docx text file with appropriate captions and notes as to placement. For questions or help troubleshooting issues with graphics/photographs, please email the corresponding editor listed above.
- Articles submitted via email rather than the online form should be accompanied by a cover letter stating that the material contained in your submission 1) is the author’s original work; 2) has not been previously published in its current form (IDRS does allow articles adapted from academic writing originally published by the originating university so long as that fact is made known); 3) is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
- Confirmation of receipt will be sent via email.
- Quarterly deadlines are for consideration for print in that particular issue.
- However, authors are encouraged to submit their materials at any time.
- Submission of materials does not guarantee publication.
- Submission of materials by a quarterly deadline does not guarantee publication in that edition.
- The editors reserve the right to edit all articles for style, content, or space requirements.
- To avoid redundancy, it is recommended that individuals planning to submit materials first do a search of relevant keywords in the archived journals at www.idrs.org.
Submission of Double Reed Event Reviews
- Reviews of double reed events (masterclasses, double reed days, etc.) should be submitted as articles via the “Submit an Article or News to the Double Reed” button found at the top of this page.
- With the exception of major events, reviews of double reed events will be limited to two pages of print, including photographs. One journal page of print (excluding photos) is roughly equivalent to two double spaced pages of Word document print.
- For questions, email the corresponding editor listed above.
