[ecrea] cultural trends - calls for reviews

Tue Apr 21 15:11:24 GMT 2009


Editor: Sara Selwood, City University, UK

Volume 18, 2009, 4 issues per year

Cultural Trends <> , the journal
that champions the need for better evidence-based analyses of the
cultural sector, is looking for reviews for the 'grey literature' Policy
Review Notes section.

These short (c.2500 words) Policy Review Notes' focus should be in the
spirit of the longer Cultural Trends' papers, concentrating on the data,
methodologies and development of the evidence base for the policy
document(s) or programme being considered.  Policy Review Notes are not
expected to be exhaustive, however - but may be a first stage or interim
commentary on the way in which empirical evidence is being used to
support management of a policy programme or evidence-based data
collection for policy development.

We would be pleased to receive reviews of the material listed below. For
further information, and to volunteer to review items listed, or any
other grey literature of relevance for the Cultural Trends' aims, please
contact: Ian Baxter, Cultural Trends Policy Review Notes Editor,
Division of Cultural Business, Glasgow Caledonian University - Email:
