Recommended Journals #2 'Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services'

In the second of this new series, another Journal with an entire special issue is recommended to ease blog readers into this way of reading up on music piracy research.

The Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services is an excellent resource, who (as promised) have a special issue 'The future of music retailing'. Published in early 2011, this issue is still one of the most important publications I have come across which is notable for its use of qualitative methodology and general multidisciplinary approach (both lacking across the board).

A really accessible read, this one will really get you thinking about where we are, how we got here and more importantly, where we are going.

International Federation of the Phonographic Industry 'Views'

Updated every month or so, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) website has an excellent 'Views' section with contributions from everyone from the RIAA to managers of bands like U2 (and a few months ago, me!).

Often posing more questions than answering them, these little nuggets are a breath of fresh air and are well worth checking out.

Note, links open as PDF documents so you will need Adobe Reader to view the files. They also open in a new window.

Check it out here.
