The “Journal of Cultural Management and Cultural Policy” is dedicated to international perspectives that address a wide range of issues in cultural management and cultural policy research and practice. We invite articles that reflect on organizational structures of creative enterprises, economic and managerial issues in the arts, cultural policy in all its dimensions, as well as creative and aesthetic processes in cultural production, distribution and perception. The peer-reviewed journal is published twice a year with a thematic section focusing on a special issue and an open section with contributions on varied topics.
To strengthen the inter- and transdisciplinary character of research in the arts and culture, the journal publishes research articles (6,000 to 10,000 words), exploratory essays (about 6,000 words), and case studies (about 4,000 words) from disciplines such as sociology (cultural) politics, economics, history, cultural theory, or the interdisciplinary integration of these. Research articles must fulfill the highest standards in methodological and theoretical approaches; whereas essays give the opportunity to develop a more personal perspective on topics. Case Studies and book reviews complement each issue.
Martin Tröndle, Constance DeVereaux, and Steffen Höhne serve as editors-in-chief of the journal, more information on the editorial board can be found online. Current calls for papers are published on here, and you’re welcome to contact the managing editor, Johanna Schindler, for any inquiry.

Under its new title, it is reaching beyond the German-speaking discourse to include a wider European and international perspective. The journal is available online and printed by the independent academic publishing house, transcript. It is listed in the most important indexes (see here).
