The Finnish Journal of Music Education publishes articles and reviews on the research and practice of music education. The Editorial Board will consider manuscripts written in the following languages: Finnish, English and Swedish. Articles written in a language other than English must include an English summary of maximum length 200 words. The journal uses in-text references (e.g. Soini 2001, 9). The ethical code of FJME does not allow consideration of any articles already published or submitted for publication in other journals or books. Publishing decisions on manuscripts are made by the Editorial Board of FJME. The Articles are blind-reviewed by researchers with relevant topical or methodological expertise.

Please submit your text to the editor(s) by e-mail as an attachment (rtf). Further information about submitting contributions is available from the Managing Editor.
