Industry: The list of industries on the Wiki are based on the categorisation of creative industries as developed by the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS). For each study, we indicate the industries represented therein (e.g. music, film) as closely as possible.
Methods: The Wiki categorises studies based on the empirical methods used for collecting and analysing data. Broadly, these are split between quantitative (numerical) and qualitative (non-numerical). There are many sub-categories which are detailed further in the User Guide.
Policy Issue: As the Wiki aims to capture studies which can inform policy and public debate, the Policy Issues category defines 6 key areas, which are represented in short-hand with alphabetical values (A-F): A. nature and scope of exclusive rights; B. exceptions; C. mass digitisation/orphan works; D. licensing and business models; E. fair remuneration, and; F. enforcement.
Year: The year in which the study was published.
