More on this journal...

The principal objective of the IJCultM is to promote scientific research and discussion around the behaviour of producers and consumers of arts and culture, and the evaluation and impact of artistic, cultural and heritage forms and manifestations in the economy and society. For that matter, IJCultM strives to create a venue for academics and scholars in the field of cultural management, where they can disseminate their research and study ideas, thoughts and empirical findings to the business community as well as to academia.


The main readership of IJCultM comprises academic institution professors, researchers, graduate students and business executives. The readership spectrum also includes experts (consultants) in cultural management, economists, government departments, consultants, planners and policy makers working in the area of culture and cultural management, as well as those with a more general interest in culture and the arts.


IJCultM will consider and publish high quality original papers, review papers, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, research notes, commentaries and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics will also be published.
