About Us

Who We Are

  The Music Industry Research Association (MIRA) brings together a cross-section of researchers, academics, and industry professionals to study critical issues in the music industry.  The association will support and promote social science research that focuses on critical issues affecting the music industry.  MIRA consists of Economists, Sociologists, Psychologists and other social scientists involved in research on the music industry, broadly defined.  MIRA will also help disseminate research findings to a wider audience beyond the research community.   


The first annual MIRA conference will take place this August 10th & 11th at UCLA's Luskin Conference Center. Please register for the event (and also receive your membership).

Submit Papers

 We invite researchers and students to submit proposals for paper presentations. An abstract or complete paper can be submitted for consideration. Papers should be related to the economics of the music industry or other social science issues concerning the music industry, broadly defined. Industry professionals may also submit proposals.
