Aims and scope

The Journal publishes research on all aspects of innovation management. Innovation is viewed here broadly to include not only product/service and process but also market, and organization as well as social innovation. This includes the study of the process in its entirety or individual stages, issues around accessing and using effectively tangible and intangible resources, innovation strategies, different tools used to manage innovation, the impact of industrial, regional, and national factors, and implications on performance.

The European Journal of Innovation Management (EJIM) particularly welcomes work that explores innovation management in new contexts (such as – but not only – services, public sector organizations, and social and community enterprises (social innovation)), at one or multiple levels (including team or project, organizational, regional, national and international).

Papers that appear in the EJIM are necessarily grounded in rigorous research methods. They should also be explicit about implications for theory and practice. Thus, authors should ensure that contribution to the state-of-the-art is clearly articulated.
