MTNA e-Journal

In September 2009, MTNA launched a new publication—the MTNA e-Journal. The purpose of the MTNA e-Journal is to provide our members, especially those in academia, an online, peer-reviewed journal, which features in-depth, scholarly, research-oriented articles enhanced through the use of sound, image and video.

The MTNA e-Journal is published four times during the academic year: September, November, February and April. It is a benefit to MTNA members.
