Paper eligibility for this journal*:
This Journal accepts original contributions addressing the multidisciplinary nature of the innovation process combining principles and concepts originating from social sciences and from technology research and development. In this context, technology should be looked upon as an enabler or as a trigger of the innovation process that resulted in the development of a new concept for a product, service, a new or improved business model or process, or any other forms of the innovative outcome.
The Peer Review process is a very important step in any academic journal, and critical for its success and prestige. This publication is no exception and, to this end, we build on the competence of each associate editor as well as on the competence of each member of the editorial board.
Once your submission has been assessed for suitability by an Editor-in-Chief, it will undergo a double-blind peer-review process, by at least 2 independent, anonymous expert referees.
Another factor for success is the response time for the blind peer-review process. We aim at having the lead-time of 12 weeks, from the submission date to the editorial decision issued after the first round of peer-review.
*This review process applies to research papers only. Letters are assessed by the Editors-in-Chief and do not require a formal double blind-peer review process.
