After the Congress, authors and presenters of the Research Session are invited to submit their work in ENCATC’s scientific publication, the European Journal of Cultural Management and Policy. Launched in October 2011, the Journal’s objective is to stimulate the debate on topics of cultural management and cultural policy among scholars, educators, policy makers and cultural managers. The Journal is based on a multidisciplinary perspective and aims at connecting theory and practice in the realm of the cultural sector.

Presenters in the Education Session are invited to submit their papers to the /encatcSCHOLAR, a unique tool for education and lifelong learning on arts and cultural management and policy. Composed of articles, exclusive interviews, case studies, conference reports and more, / encatcSCHOLAR was born to satisfy the growing demand for the latest teaching material from academics, researchers, cultural operators and students in over 40 countries around the world.
