Submission guidelines and dates

The board has recently reviewed the editorial policy of the Irish Journal of Arts Management and Cultural Policy.
The exercise was prompted by our desire to provide a more diverse, representative and inclusive platform for academics and emerging researchers, those involved in both creative and management practice in the cultural sector, and policymakers, to engage with questions of policy and management on cultural issues across the island of Ireland. While maintaining our existing commitment to publishing original academic research papers, the new policy seeks to highlight emerging research from the wealth of student work at MA level on the island, and provide an opportunity for cultural managers, practitioners and policymakers to reflect on policies and practices shaping the cultural sector here.

 

Under our revised policy, therefore, we will be maintaining:

  • Our core commitment to publishing academic papers based on peer-reviewed original research 
  • A Book Review section, with some revised guidelines

And introducing three new sections:

  • Policy and Report Reviews: reviews and reflections on recent policy and reports published in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland
  • Perspectives on Practice: a section showcasing current practice in arts management, heritage management and cultural policy
  • New Voices: Postgraduate Research: a new section devoted to short summary articles summarising original postgraduate research work at master’s level and above

Proposals for special issues of the journal are also always welcome.

We now invite submissions for the 2019 issue of IJAMCP:
