The International Journal of Arts Management (IJAM), specializing in research on arts management, is now indexed in the influential Journal of Citation Report (JCR). Since volume 12, the IJAM has been part of the following indexes:
“This recognition is very important for the arts management and cultural industry research community,” emphasized Editor in Chief Johanne Turbide. “It means that the Journal is becoming a very highly regarded peer-reviewed publication.”
“Earning a place on this index is quite an exploit for the publishers of the IJAM, since the organization responsible for the JCR admits only 10 to 12% of the 2,000 new journals that apply every year,” added Director of Research Jean-Claude Cosset. “It is also a source of pride for the School, since few business schools can boast of having a journal listed in the JCR. Not only does this indexation add to the prestige of the IJAM, but its publishers can look forward to a sharp increase in the number of articles submitted, since researchers are interested primarily in scientific journals indexed in the JCR to ensure citations for their articles.”
The IJAM was founded in 1998 by François Colbert, Director of the IJAM and holder of the Carmelle and Rémi Marcoux Chair in Arts Management, in co-operation with the International Association of Arts and Cultural Management. It quickly became a forum for international discussions, bringing together researchers, academics and practitioners in the arts and culture field around articles whose quality and relevance is guaranteed by peer review. It stands out in the way it publishes articles from all spheres of management.
With three issues a year (fall, winter and spring), the Journal now has over 800 subscribers in 48 countries (60% international, 19% in Quebec and 21% in the rest of Canada). Its editorial committee is made up of leading researchers, academics and practitioners from 10 different countries. Over the past three years, the 55 articles it has published were by authors from 14 different countries. The Journal will mark its 15th year in fall 2012.
About the JCR
The JCR is published annually by the Institute for Scientific Information, which ranks scientific journals according to the frequency of citation of their articles. There are two editions: one for scientific journals (JCR Science Edition) and the other for the social sciences (JCR Social Sciences Edition). The first covers more than 6,400 journals and the second, over 1,800.
