This Open Issue showcases the diversity of active scholarship across the International Association for the Study of Popular Music. We have seven contributions from scholars along multiple career stages, covering diverse topics from streaming to composing. They encompass a variety of methodological traditions, notably musicological and ethnographic ways into thinking about the production and consumption of popular music. This richness and variety of scholarship extends across diverse institutions, locations and points of departure, resulting in a dynamic, global academic ecosystem of popular music enquiry. We are a journal with an international reach and membership, and this dynamic richness is what makes reading these pieces so rewarding.
