Jazz research is growing worldwide. At academies, conservatories, and universities around the world, various kinds of research in jazz take place. Some of this research is of practical use, can be applied in the performance and teaching of jazz, some not.

This IASJ website is dedicated to 'applied jazz research': high-quality research that is linked with and of direct and practical use in jazz performance and in jazz education.
