The Journal of Music Reaches a Quarter of a Million Readers
The Journal of Music has reached a quarter of a million readers for 2019. This is an increase of one hundred thousand on its 2018 readership.
Commenting on the readership figures, Toner Quinn, editor of the Journal of Music, said:
Yesterday, we published a list of the most popular articles on the Journal of Music in 2019, and it shows that there is a significant demand for in-depth writing on music. That is our raison d’être and we appreciate all the writers who contribute to the site.
Our aim is to continue to document and increase our understanding of the extraordinary musical life that is all around us, and to that end we have recently launched a Reader Reviews section. I invite all readers to contribute their thoughts. I would also like to thank the Arts Council for its support of the Journal of Music. As we enter our twentieth year, we look forward to what the music world will bring in 2020.
The Journal of Music introduced a number of new initiatives in 2019, including a weekly Concert Planner in March, increased coverage of traditional, classical, opera, contemporary and indie music, music writer mentoring schemes for Galway City and County (supported by the arts offices of both areas), and another scheme for traditional music (supported by the Arts Council’s Deis scheme). In October, the site announced a new Reader Reviews section.
