The Journal of Innovation Management (JIM) is the diamond open access, multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal hosting cutting-edge debate on innovation and its management, whatever form and facet it takes, and embracing the technological features, managerial processes and impacts of innovation.

By adopting a multidisciplinary perspective on innovation, JIM bridges the gap between scientific research, policy-making, and practice by providing a platform for visionary and pioneering research and thought leadership, enabling a deeper understanding of innovation and the appreciation of its implications.

JIM encourages submissions addressing all phases, stages and types of innovation, from discovery and exploratory science, design, R&D, commercialisation, adoption and diffusion. Submissions combining principles, methods and concepts originating from a myriad of scientific areas, from Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences as well as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, are particularly welcome.


Types of Submissions

JIM welcomes original contributions in the form of full Research Papers (conceptual, reviews, empirical), as well as Letters from Industry/Academia/Standardisation/Policy and Book Reviews.


JIM is mainly directed to STEM & HASS (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics - & - Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences) researchers, practitioners, thought leaders, policy-makers, education professionals and students with an interest in innovation.
