‘Innovation … consists in the purposeful and organized search for changes, and in the systematic analysis of the opportunities such changes may offer’ (Drucker, 1985, 49).
The European Journal of Innovation Management offers a forum for the rapid dissemination of pragmatist research in the field of innovation studies. Within this context, practice is part of the learning process, where change (through rigorous and invariably evidence-based research) in existing frameworks, models and methods yields new ideas in a process of continuous discovery.
The Journal publishes research on all aspects of innovation (viewed here broadly to include not only product/service and process but also market, and organization) management in organizational contexts. 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 welcomes particularly 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, though often grounded on rigorous empirical research, should be explicit about implications for theory and practice. Thus, authors should ensure that contribution to the state-of-the-art is clearly articulated.
The journal is open to researchers at all stages of their careers; however, it aspires to recognize the role of new voices in innovation studies.
