Aims and Scope 

Business processes are a fundamental building block of organizational success. Even though effectively managing business process is a key activity for business prosperity, there remain considerable gaps in understanding how to drive efficiency through a process approach. Building a clear and deep understanding of the range process, how they function, and how to manage them is the major challenge facing modern business.

Business Process Management Journal (BPMJ) examines how a variety of business processes intrinsic to organizational efficiency and effectiveness are integrated and managed for competitive success. BPMJ builds a deep appreciation of how to manage business processes effectively by disseminating best practice. Coverage includes:

  • BPM in eBusiness, eCommerce and eGovernment 
  • Web-based enterprise application integration 
  • eBPM, ERP, CRM, ASP & SCM 
  • Knowledge management and learning organization
  • Methodologies, techniques and tools of business process modeling, analysis and design 
  • Techniques of moving from one-shot business process re-engineering to continuous improvement 
  • Best practices in BPM 
  • Performance management 
  • Tools and techniques of change management 
  • BPM case studies


'The Business Process Management Journal (BPMJ) is the prime outlet of the BPM community. This community has established over the past 20 years and it is of growing importance worldwide both in research and practice. As a BPM researcher, I always consider BPMJ the first outlet to submit my research results. In turn, BPMJ is also the major source in keeping up to date with the extensive body of knowledge of our discipline. As a teacher of BPM at a number of universities through Europe, papers published in BPMJ mark an essential element of the BPM curriculum. Articles published in BPMJ are well cited both in Management and Information Systems journals.'
Professor Jan vom Brocke, Hilti Chair of Business Process Management, University of Liechtenstein
