Evaluating culture and regional economies
Hill, Stephen & McGovern, Mark (2005) Evaluating culture and regional economies. Australasian Journal of Regional Studies, 11(1), pp. 59-73.
Culture is in fashion. Creative, innovative, entrepreneurial and other affirmative cultures are the aspirational goals of regions and their developers. Culture, and an espoused need for cultural change, typify regions as diverse as Queensland sugar, the Middle East, and Wales. Culture as a stimulating and progressing environment can energise entrepreneurs and institutions to drive change and regional development. Such is the fashion. The interplay between culture and regional economic development is the focus of this paper. Ways of developing considerations of culture are examined along with potential modes of analysis. The impacts of culture can be considerable but care is needed in evaluation. Evaluative frameworks need to be well structured if appropriate insights are to be gained into the regional contributions of culture.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
