A Call for Submissions

By Editorial Staff

As we approach our sixth year of publication, Massage Today is pleased to announce a call for 2006 article submissions. Interested authors should submit one or more original articles, along with a brief curriculum vitae (CV) and a current color photograph, to .

We encourage articles on any topic concerning the art, science or philosophy of massage. However, based on the results of reader surveys, the following general topic areas might be given priority in 2006 when reviewing articles for publication:

  • Insurance/Managed Care/The Practice
  • Clinical Tips
  • Practice Management
  • The New Practitioner
  • The Future of Massage Education
  • CAM and Holistic Health

Our editorial board generally reviews submissions within three to five weeks. If accepted, notification is sent to the author (by e-mail whenever possible), along with a standard Assignment of Copyright form, which must be signed and returned before we can publish the article. Signing the copyright form once will cover all current and future submissions.

We don't consider articles submitted to (or accepted by) another publisher. Articles also must not be commercial or promotional with respect to a product or service. If the article is accepted, any such references will be omitted or reworded in general terms.

We recommend an approximate article length of 100-150 lines (1,000-1,500 words). Longer articles will be considered, if the topic necessitates it, but such articles might need to be broken into two or more parts and published as a series.

Please submit articles as Microsoft Word documents in an 11-point Times New Roman font, typed and single-spaced. If you do not have Word, send a text file or paste the article into the body of an e-mail. If submitting images with the article, please format images separate from the document (make appropriate notation as to where they should be placed) and include complete image captions as necessary. If submitting via postal mail, include a printed copy and a copy saved to a floppy disc.

Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts and expertise with the massage profession.
