String Research Journal (SRJ) represents the research community of the American String Teachers Association (ASTA). Its purpose is to encourage and improve scholarship and research within the string education profession and disseminate the results of this work to the string and larger music teaching communities. Each year the SRJ publishes reports of peer-reviewed original research related to string music teaching, learning, and performance. The journal considers quantitative, qualitative, historical, and philosophical research relevant to string settings—from early childhood study to the advanced private studio and string ensembles. It covers a wide range of topics including: various aspects of string pedagogy and teaching practices, effective rehearsals, performance, history, and listener perception.

SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.
The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.
