The Journal of Movement Arts Literacy is now

accepting submissions on a rolling basis.

While flexible in length, we are interested in essays and empirical research for Feature Articles (approx. 8,000 words) and praxis and experiential accounts for Practitioner's Perspectives (approx. 4,000 words). The JMAL website supports video clips that can be embedded in articles. The editors are interested in book and score reviews (if interested, contact the editors). Accepted articles must be formatted in the footnote/bibliography style of Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. See "Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines," in the tool bar to the left, for ways to focus writing, as well as details about preparing manuscripts.

Journal of Movement Arts Literacy is an international, peer reviewed, open-access academic publication that serves to promote the scholarly study of movement arts literacy (using notation, symbolic representation, and critical analysis) for the purposes of supporting development of pedagogy, theory, application, practice, and research of human movement. Focus on movement is especially aimed toward, but not limited to, inquiry into aesthetic, scientific, and cultural understanding of movement arts using movement-based literacy. For more details about movement arts literacy, see Aims and Scope.
