Journal of Innovation Management


This journal encourages the submission of papers addressing the multidisciplinary nature of the innovation process combining principles and concepts originating from a myriad of scientific areas, from social sciences to technology research and development. The journal encompasses all phases of the process of technological innovation from conceptualization of a new technology-based product/service process through commercialization.

The multidisciplinary perspective associated with JIM means that papers should combine, though not being restricted, to the following areas:

  • Economic and Social Science (e.g., Business Anthropology; Business; Creativity and Improvisation; Cross-cultural Issues; Design Thinking; Education; Entrepreneurship; Innovation; Economics; Management; Market Research; Marketing; Research Methods; Strategy).
  • Technology and Science.
  • Product Innovation Management
