Editor's Message

Music Theory Online took a brief hiatus over the summer.  The present issue contains a generous set of reviews and the usual listings of professional announcements, employment opportunities, new dissertations, and new books.  MTO readers are reminded that reactions to MTO items can be made in two ways.  Short comments are appropriate for mto-talk, the journal's email discussion list <mto-talk@societymusictheory.org> (one must be an official MTO subscriber to post to mto-talk).  More extended responses may be submitted as Commentaries, which will be published in a subsequent issue.  Formatting guidelines for Commentaries are the same as for regular submissions and can be reviewed in the MTO Author Guidelines <http://societymusictheory.org/mto/docs/authors.html>.

Readers are also reminded that MTO accepts submissions of articles at any time.  Articles are read blind and authors normally receive a response within about four weeks.  I am happy to work with potential contributors who, after reading the Author Guidelines (URL is listed above)  have questions about preparing musical examples.  

We continue to improve the MTO web pages.  The Comprehensive Author Index <http://societymusictheory.org/mto/docs/index-author.html> has been resigned to improve readability.  Your suggestions for making it easier to use the site are always welcome.
