Editorial Credits

The series Computing in Musicology benefitted greatly from the contributions of in-house staff members Don Anthony, Edmund Correia, Steven Rasmussen, and Beth Youngdoff. The enthusiasm of the many notation-software developers who contributed their best work annually played an important role in moving the dial forward for all users. The musicologists and music theorists who sent in progress reports on individual work played an equally important role in helping to establish a field that was still in gestation. The contributing editors whose names are listed in each issue brought essential insights and perspectives.
