CFP: Cultural Policy

CALL FOR POLICY REVIEW NOTES
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 below, or any other grey literature of relevance for the Cultural Trends' aims, please contact:
Ian Baxter, Cultural Trends Policy Review Notes Editor, Glasgow Caledonian University.
