Dear readers,

I am extremely pleased to announce that the International Journal of Arts Management has been accepted for inclusion in the prestigious JCR (Journal Citation Reports) rankings. Beginning with Volume 12 n° 2, IJAM will be indexed in the following:

  • Arts and Humanities Citation Index® 
  • Current Contents® /Arts & Humanities
  • Social Sciences Citation Index®
  • Journal Citation Reports / Social Sciences Edition
  • Current Contents® / Social and Behavioral Sciences

This recognition is extremely important for the community of researchers working in the field of arts and cultural management. It means that IJAM has attained the status of a leading peer-reviewed journal that is “officially” recognized by the renowned JCR Index.

As academics, we know how important journal rankings are for our careers and for the impact of our contributions in terms of fulfilling our mission, which is to publish rigorous and relevant research reports presenting empirical data framed against a theoretical background in the field of arts and cultural management. 

The first article in this issue of the Journal is based on an agreement reached between IJAM and the George Fairfax Fellowship in Arts and Entertainment Management at Deakin University in Australia. Under our agreement with Professor Ruth Rentschler, who is responsible for the Fellowship, presentations deemed to be of interest to the community of arts and cultural researchers and practitioners will be published in IJAM at the recommendation of the editorial board. In this issue, you will find an article written by IJAM’s editor on issues of governance in cultural organizations facing a financial crisis, along with a discussion of the causes of such crises.

The second article, by Manuel Cartier and Sébastien Liarte, discusses the factors that affect supply and demand in the Hollywood film industry based on a study of 1,141 films released between 2000 and 2009.

In the next contribution, Alessia Zorloni presents a study on performance evaluation in art museums inspired by the balanced scorecard. Based on her analytical sample, which is made up of 16 museums in the cities of Washington, New York and London, the author identifies nine factors that are critical to the success of museums.

Finally, two articles are devoted to the arts and cultural scene in Chicago. Mary Filice and Susannah Young draw on the history of the Balaban and Katz theatre corporation in Chicago to describe an integrated business model in which the performing, visual and media arts all come together under one roof. In the second article, Robert Blandford presents the success factors that made possible the addition of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Modern Wing.

Thank you for your continuing interest in IJAM!
