How to publish in this journal



Published by Elsevier in collaboration with the Association for Project Management (APM) and the International Project Management Association (IPMA)The International Journal of Project Management is the leading journal for the field of project management and organization studies. Its mission is to publish leading edge innovative research that significantly advances the field of project management and organizing. Published eight times a year it presents new knowledge on areas such as managing projects, programs and portfolios, project-based/oriented organizations, project networks, and project-oriented societies. It is dedicated to project management and organizing from the perspectives of organizational behavior, strategy, change, and innovation. Methodologically, IJPM covers the full range of empirically-based modes of enquiry using appropriate research frameworks, provided they demonstrate generic insights of significant value to project management. IJPM does not categorically exclude certain empirical methodologies, except however purely mathematical modeling or operations research pieces. Irrespective of the mode of enquiry or methods used, the key methodological issues in new submissions are: appropriateness of methodology to the research task, clarity in how the study has been carried out, rigor in the application of the methods, and consideration of relevant validity issues. Papers are also expected to explicitly build on current debates in recent literature and to contribute to theory. Occasionally IJPM publishes conceptual papers which fulfill a high-quality standard.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
