Since 1959, the Choral Journal has been the refereed, international journal of the American Choral Directors Association. The volume year runs August through June/July and contains 11 issues, which are circulated to 14,000 subscribers in 44 countries.
Each issue features: three scholarly articles, anonymously peer-reviewed by the editorial board; editorials from association leadership and the Choral Journal editor; reviews of books, recorded sound, and choral works by choral experts; and columns of practical advice and ideas for choral conductors. Regular column content is managed by a column editor and featured on a rotating basis through the volume year. The January and February issues preview each year’s divisional or national conference offerings.
The Choral Journal editorial board and column editors are chosen through an application process. Term limits are for 4 years, renewable once for a total of 8 years.
Articles from the Choral Journal can be found in the following online databases: JSTOR (Arts & Sciences XI Collection); ProQuest (International Index to Music Periodicals); University Microfilms International; NaPublishing; RILM (Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale) and RILM’s Music Journals Collection; EBSCO music index; and WorldCat.
