Commenting on the milestone, Editor Toner Quinn said
This is an important moment for The Journal of Music because the publishing world is very competitive and fast-changing. Over the past eight years, we have seen how building a readership online inevitably comes back to strong, thoughtful writing and original music insights, combined with reliable information for a busy scene. Staying abreast of developments in a diverse music world is a fascinating challenge and one we love. We appreciate every reader that joins us, our many writers, and of course our supporters, in particular the Arts Council.
The Journal of Music has just launched a new mentoring programme for writers about music. For full details see here.
