Project Management Journal Has An Increasing Impact!
The new impact factor metrics from Thompson Reuters are out. Project Management Journal® received a two-year impact factor of 2.714 and a five-year impact factor of 2.487, respectively. Last year the two-year impact factor was 1.765 and the year before it was 1.14, just passing the 1.0 threshold; in the years before, it was below 1.0. In addition, the number of submissions has increased to approximately 600 per year, which means that we have quadrupled the impact factor and number of submissions since we started our turn-around with a new editorial team in 2013. Our strategy is to contribute to the development of project management research and, specifically, to shape the themes and quality of this research and increase its dissemination.
