TRIAL: Academic Charts Online

We have a trial of Academic Charts Online until the end of August 2013.

To access Academic Charts Online go to Use Apps Anywhere for off-campus access. If we were to subscribe, we would setup off-campus access through EZproxy as usual.

Academic Charts Online (ACO) measures the impact of music across countries and cultures. It enables evidence based research across all genres from pop to classical, jazz and world music and examines its impact on art, politics and culture. Features include a growing repository of statistical chart data from the US, UK, Europe, South America and Asia which is current and updated weekly with historical data back to inception of each chart type. There are also links to leading music journals and databases including Cambridge University Press’ Popular Music, Wiley, Taylor & Francis, Rock’s Backpages and RILM. The analytical tools enable evidence-based research,  and  searching is by Artist, Album, Title, Label, Chart Position and Date. The data is provided under exclusive academic license from Billboard, the Official Charts Company and others. Additional countries are added quarterly.

After trying Academic Charts Online, please leave your comments below. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.
