An author and practicing researcher, Sims has published in a variety of preeminent journals including "Psychology of Music, International Journal of Music Education, Music Educators Journal, and Journal of Research in Music Education".

She also provided insights into the periodical publication process, offering suggestions to assist both novice and experienced researchers in developing their understanding of what is needed to author publishable research studies.
