        Subject: Call for Articles using Music and Film data sets


Dear Colleagues,

I serve on the Library Advisory Board for the Music Industry Data
 http://www.academicrightspress.com/entertainment  (MID) resource. This
resource contains over 60 years of historical music data from international
charting albums and singles from Billboard, Official Chart Company, GfK
Entertainment and many more reporting agencies from over 30 countries
around the world. MID enables researchers to do data analysis and
represents relationships between artists, bands, genres using MusicWeb
(semantic indexing service).

MID would like to commission articles from faculty and students (including
post-doctoral researchers) using data sets in Music​ ​Industry Data and
Film Industry Data for publication in The Journal of Open Humanities Data
 http://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/  (JOHD) published by Ubiquity
Press.​ The JOHD is open access and requires a publication fee. For
accepted articles, a sponsorship can be arranged to cover the fee in order
to support research using Music ID and Film ID, as well as other data sets.
Guidelines for articles can be found by following this link
 http://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/ .
