The Nordic Journal of Cultural Policy aims at creating a forum for cultural policy research in the Nordic countries and to disseminate relevant cultural policy research and information to audiences in academic communities, public administrations, cultural institutions, the media and other organisations. The journal also wants to encourage and stimulate debate on issues relevant to cultural policy.

The Journal is aimed at readers and writers who are active as professionals or researchers in the field of cultural policy in the Nordic countries. The journal publishes articles in Norwegian, Danish, Swedish and English and its Editorial Board consists of researchers from the Nordic countries. The editorship of the Journal is currently at the Centre for Cultural Policy Research Cupore in Helsinki.

The Nordic Journal of Cultural Policy is an open access journal. Two issues are published yearly. Usually one of the issues is a thematic issue for which a special call will be launched.
