SCI Journal of Scores Call

The Society of Composers, Inc. invites composers to submit one work to be considered for inclusion in the next Journal of Music Scores. The Journal is an anthology of music by members of the Society and is published by European American Music, a member of the Schott Music Group. Submissions may be for any instruments including voice, but should be of relatively short to medium length since the volumes generally contain 3 to 5 pieces and are approximately 100 pages. Scores should be anonymous, exceptionally clear, bound, and in 8.5 by 11 inches format (portrait or landscape). If selected, each composer must provide the editor with camera-ready copy. The Journal is used for reference only. A notice about the availability of performance material is included. The composer retains the copyright of the music and royalties are not paid. Although most of the pieces in the Journal are unpublished, we have occasionally reprinted pieces that are commercially published. If this is the case, the composer must submit a letter of permission from the publisher with the submission and make it clear that royalties or reprint fees are not paid. Composers whose works have been represented in the SCI Journal of Scores in the last five years are not eligible. By submitting, the composer agrees to participate if their work is selected for inclusion.

To participate submit one bound, 8.5x11 (or 11x8.5), anonymous score, one anonymous CD recording (optional, with only the title appearing on the disc) and a completed submission form sealed in a separate envelope marked with the work's title.
