1. Boethius takes over!
The long-anticipated day has finally arrived. MTO and the other SMT networking services now operate entirely from our Internet host, boethius.
The main Web pages are:
http://smt.ucsb.edu/boethius.html (master page) http://smt.ucsb.edu/mto/index.html (MTO services) http://smt.ucsb.edu/smt-list/smthome.html (SMT services)
* * PLEASE TAKE NOTE! * *
Due to some changes in directory structure and in the our Web server's configuration, these URLs differ slightly from those given in the Editor's Message in MTO 1.4 (July, 1995).
Our anonymous FTP address is: smt.ucsb.edu See the MTO guide (mto-guide.txt) and SMT guide (smt-guide.txt) for details on the directory structure. An alternate FTP site is located at the University of North Texas: smtftp.acs.unt.edu Our gopher address is: smt.ucsb.edu At your host's prompt type: gopher smt.ucsb.edu The main menu has options for MTO and the SMT Email Conference. An alternate gopher site has been established by Philip Baczewski at the University of North Texas (Denton): smtgopher.acs.unt.edu
The individual networking services include:
MTO (the subscriber mailing list) firstname.lastname@example.org (only for announcements and TOC distribution, not for communication among subscribers) mto-talk (MTO's associated discussion forum) email@example.com MTO FileServer (for retrieving MTO items by email) firstname.lastname@example.org MTO Database (online index of MTO articles, reviews, and commentaries) email@example.com
SMT Email Conference (SMT's electronic discussion forum) firstname.lastname@example.org FileServer (for retrieving SMT related material) email@example.com Online Bibliographic Database (indexes articles and reviews in theory journals) firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks to Robert Judd, MTO Manager, for the detailed work of revising the main Web pages to accomodate the new directory structure; and to Phil Baczewski for providing computer resources to establish the alternate gopher site. A third site, for archiving graphic and sound files, is in planning at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, to be set up and maintained by John Schaffer. =======================================
2. UCSB Funds MTO
The College of Letters and Science at UC Santa Barbara has generously granted MTO the sum of $3,000 for supporting and developing the journal during the 1995-96 academic year, with a possibility for renewal in 1996-97, pending review. The proposal I submitted for funding was the first of its kind at UCSB, and I am grateful for the University's progressive attitude toward scholarly electronic publishing, and its recognition of our accomplishments so far. The money will be used to pay for proofreading and copyediting, as well as for technical assistance and equipment. ==============================================================
One of UCSB's considerations for continued funding of MTO is the number and quality of its submissions. The Co-editorial Board and I have actively sought essays to supplment unsolicited submissions. We hope that the number of essays submitted for review will rise this year, now that MTO has a home and has established itself as a scholarly publication over the past several years. The possibility of multimedia articles in music is exciting and offers opportunities to define new ways of presenting our research. With your contributions, MTO will remain an important medium for bringing new ideas to a worldwide community of those interested in music theory and, through interactive publishing (MTO commentaries and mto-talk), can be a unique vehicle for shaping those ideas.
Prospective authors should read the document authors.txt, available in the MTO archives (pub/mto/docs directory), and are encouraged to look into preparing an HTML version of their work, along with a standard, plain-text version (ASCII). Robert Judd has prepared a guide to HTML editors, complete with links for retrieving the necessary software (www-tools.txt in the pub/mto/docs directory).
Essays should be submitted to the MTO General Editor (email@example.com). Those interested in writing a review for MTO should contact the Reviews Editor, Brian Alegant (firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to receiving your submissions.
4. Co-editorial Board
The Co-editorial Board of MTO is appointed by the SMT President in consultation with the Publications Committee. It currently consists of the following members:
Lee A. Rothfarb, General Editor (UC Santa Barbara) email@example.com Robert Judd, MTO Manager (University of Pennsylvania) firstname.lastname@example.org Brian Alegant, Reviews Editor (McGill University) email@example.com Dave Headlam (Eastman School of Music) firstname.lastname@example.org Justin London (Carleton College) email@example.com Ann K. McNamee (Swarthmore College) firstname.lastname@example.org
We invite your comments and suggestions. ========================================
8. Copyright Statement +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Overview: 1. Retrieving MTO Items (with mto-serv, FTP, and through WWW) 2. Subscribing to MTO 3. Retrieving MTO Documentation 4. Queries and Communications
1. RETRIEVING MTO ITEMS
MTO FileServer Items are retrieved by sending an email message to the MTO FileServer, mto-serv, or through anonymous FTP (see below). To use the FileServer, send a message to one of the following two addresses:
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the body of the message include the following lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path YourEmailAddress (Bitnet addresses *must* include .BITNET) send Item (specify item, as listed below) send Item (additional "send" lines, if desired)
After the word "path," enter your full email address (Bitnet users must include .BITNET). Be *sure* to include the word "path" followed by a valid email address. Without the "path" line, mto-serv will not know where to deliver requested items. To retrieve items from the *current* issue of MTO, after the word "send," replace "Item" with the one of the following options:
articles (= main article[s]) gifs (= musical examples) reviews (= review[s]) commentaries (= commentaries on past MTO articles) dissertations (= dissertation listings) announcements (= announcements) jobs (= job listings) package (= all the above items, in a single package) toc (= current table of contents)
path email@example.com send package
********************************************************************** CAUTIONARY NOTE: Subscribers with restricted emailbox space should be careful when using the "package" option. A full issue of MTO, text and musical examples, can be quite large and may "crash" an emailbox of limited size. It may be safer to request a few files at a time, and to remove them from the emailbox before requesting more files. **********************************************************************
For instructions on retrieving items from back issues, or complete back issues of MTO, consult the document "mto-guide.txt" (see below, on retrieving MTO documentation).
FTP MTO items may also be retrieved through anonymous FTP. The site is: smt.ucsb.edu). An alternate FTP site is located at the University of North Texas: smtftp.acs.unt.edu. Use "anonymous" as loginID and your email address as password. Change to the directory pub/mto/issues/mto.yy.v.i (where yy = last two digits of the current year, v = volume number, and i = issue number) with the command: cd pub/mto/issues/mto.yy.v.i. The file mto.current contains all items constituting the current issue; toc.current is the most recent table of contents. The individual items of the current issue have filenames that begin as follows: mto.yy.v.i, where "yy" is the last two digits of the current year; "v" is the current volume number; and "i" is the current issue number (example: mto.94.0.6). Refer to the MTO Guide for further information.
GOPHER The address of the MTO gopher site is: smt.ucsb.edu The initial menu includes an option for MTO. An alternate gopher site is located at the University of North Texas: smtgopher.acs.unt.edu
WWW MTO also has a World-Wide Web page. The URL is:
Follow the links to the current or past issues.
2. SUBSCRIBING TO MTO To subscribe to MTO, send an email message to one of the following "listproc" addresses:
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the text of the message include the following single line (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
subscribe mto-list YourFirstName YourLastName
You will receive a message confirming your subscription. Once the subscription is confirmed, to receive the MTO Guide send a message to one of the "listproc" addresses shown above, and as the body of the message include the single line: information mto-list
To cancel a subscription, send the following single line to one of the "listproc" addresses (not to mto-serv!): unsubscribe mto-list
[NOTE: Do not send email to the "listproc" addresses for anything other than initiating and terminating subscriptions to MTO. Further, do not send email to mto-list@boethius. mto-list is solely for broadcasting MTO to its subscribers, *not* for communication among subscribers, nor for retrieving MTO items (done with mto-serv), nor for communication with the Editor (address above). Please do not send mail to mto-list@boethius, *nor* use a "reply" command on email distributed through mto-list.]
3. RETRIEVING MTO DOCUMENTATION Several MTO explanatory documents are available through mto-serv:
mto-guide.txt (the MTO Guide, also retrievable from "listproc") Instructions for a. subscribing to MTO b. retrieving MTO items (articles, reviews, commentaries, musical examples, and figures) c. posting items in MTO (announcements, jobs, dissertations) d. searching the MTO database authors.txt Guidelines for authors policy.txt MTO editorial policy software.txt List of available software (IBM and Mac) for MTO subscribers, and instructions for retrieving the software mto.index List of all files in the MTO archive (updated regularly)
To retrieve any of these documents, send an email message to one of the "mto-serv" addresses (not to the "listproc" addresses!), and use the format shown above ("path" line with full email address, and one or more "send" lines specifying the desired document[s]). For example, to retrieve the document called "software.txt," address a message to mto-serv and as the body of the message include only the following two lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path firstname.lastname@example.org (Bitnet addresses must include .BITNET) send software.txt send authors.txt (additional "send" lines for more items)
The words "path" (followed by an email address) and "send" (followed by the desired item) *must* appear.
4. QUERIES AND COMMUNICATIONS Send all queries and communications (announcements, letters to the Editor, etc.) to one of the following addresses:
