Grove Updating Program
This major program to update articles in Grove Music Online is an ongoing priority for the Grove editorial team at Oxford University Press. New print projects and targeted online-only projects provide updates to hundreds of entries each year, but with over 50,000 entries online, we believe that maintaining Grove must be a joint, ongoing effort between the scholarly community and the publisher. On behalf of Editor in Chief Deane Root, we invite you to participate.
- Submit updates to articles
- Suggest corrections, revisions, or new articles
- Tell us what you think
The editorial team is actively reaching out to Grove contributors for corrections, updates, and suggestions for revisions, and we also flag entries that should be regularly revisited. We have over 5,000 authors to contact, and the contact information for many is out of date. If you are a previous contributor, we encourage you to get in touch. We also welcome any other suggestions or feedback from readers.
