The International Journal of Music Business Research (IJMBR) as a double-blind reviewed academic journal provides a new platform to present articles of merit and to shed light on the current state of the art of music business research. Music business research is a scientific approach at the intersection of economic, artistic, especially musical, cultural, social, legal, technological developments that aims at a better understanding of the creation/production, dissemination/distribution and reception/consumption of the cultural good music. Thus, the IJMBR targets all academics, from students to professors, from around the world and from all disciplines with an interest in research on the music economy.

Scope of the IJMBR

The music economy is a broad field encompassing various research activities. Articles on musician’s income sources and earnings, their social and economic welfare and status should be included as well as on the conditions of production, distribution and use of music. Research on the organisations within the music economy such as record companies, music publishers, collecting societies, music educational institutions, concert promoters, booking and artist agencies, ticketing companies, manufacturers of music instruments all fit within the scope of the IJMBR along with the institutional framework for the production, distribution and use of music such as music related intellectual property rights (such as copyright, moral rights, patents, trademarks and brands), music business contracts and policy issues (e.g. public funding, competition policy, taxation, social policy for musicians). In addition articles on the international music trade (such as the licensing of music and music export initiatives) and music market structures are welcomed as well as features on music professions, music professionals, music management, marketing, sponsoring and merchandising. There is also room for papers on all music genres and for so-called functional music such as music for religious practices and rites, films, TV-series, commercials and even “elevator” music, sound design, sound branding, music visualisation. Last but not least all aspects of the history of the music businesses should be highlighted in the IJMBR.
