Call for Papers: 12th Young Scholars’ Workshop of the International Music Business Research Days 2022

The Young Scholars’ Workshop, as part of the 13th International Music Business Research Days (Vienna, Austria), invites once again young researchers to submit paper abstracts of all disciplines exploring questions that help understand economic and managerial problems as well as processes of the music business sector and in the field of music management. There are many questions that call for investigation and need to be discussed in music business research, for example:

  • What drives innovation in the music business sector?
  • How can we scientifically understand and differentiate music business models?
  • What do we know about critical success factors? Have success factors changed over time – and has music business (entrepreneurship) changed in general?
  • What rationalities affect this very “personal” industry?
  • What does it mean to be self-managed in the music business?
  • What can we learn about the customer’s willingness to pay for music recordings or related goods?
  • Who will control the future music market, e.g., startups or Apple?
  • How can we understand the role of brands and the music industry?
  • And how can music business research support efforts for innovative business models?
  • What issues of gender, class or “race” exist in a music business context? How are they dealt with?

 
These research questions are not exhaustive, papers may also address other aspects.
 
The workshop organizers Prof. Dr. Peter Tschmuck (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna) and Prof. Dr. Carsten Winter (Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media) strongly encourage submissions from students at all levels of MA & PhD. Students are supposed to work on their MA or PhD thesis and discuss it with senior researchers of music business research.
 
Abstracts (of about 1,000 characters) are due by May 31, 2022, and full papers (15-30 pages) are due by September 15, 2022. Only abstracts and papers submitted on time will be considered.
 
A maximum of 6-8 papers will be selected for presentation to guarantee a workshop atmosphere. The sessions will combine paper presentations and discussions including interactive elements. Information on the acceptance of the paper proposal will be sent until June 30, 2022, at the latest.
 
Please email your submission to youngscholars@imbra.eu
 
Paper proposals and final papers must be submitted as pdf documents and should include contact information, at least affiliation, e-mail address, telephone number and postal address of the author(s).

The Economics of Music – 2nd Edition

In July 2021, the fully updated 2nd edition of “The Economics of Music” has been published by Agenda Publishing, which was reviewed by the eminent cultural economist David Throsby in the TIMES Literary Supplement: https://www.the-tls.co.uk/articles/the-music-business/

 

Promotional text:

The music industry is one of the most dynamic business sectors. It has had to evolve and adapt to continually changing technologies and business models. Its latest challenge has been Covid-19 and the loss of live music at a time when live performance outstrips music sales as the primary source of income for today’s artists. The second edition of this much used introduction to the economic workings of the music business explores the impact of the pandemic at every level of the sector and considers how the business model may need to change going forward as different stakeholder positions shift. The new edition also examines new trends in the music industry such as the increasing dominance of tech companies and data, the increasing importance of CMOs as market players, the increased role of artist management, which has impacted on new business contracts, as well as changes to how we use music in our everyday lives and how this impacts on new entrepreneurial behaviours around music.
