Project Management Journal (PMJ) Mission Statement
Current Impact Factor
The Project Management Journal’s mission is to shape world thinking on the need for and impact of managing projects by publishing cutting-edge research that advances theory and evidence-based practice.
Projects represent a growing proportion of human activity in large, small, private and public organizations. They are used to execute organizational strategy and to sustain organizational activities. Projects are the engine of tomorrow’s innovation, value creation, and strategic change.
PMJ addresses these challenges and opportunities by encouraging the development and application of novel theories, concepts, frameworks, research methods, designs, and teaching case studies. It invites articles on projects, programs, project portfolios; megaprojects; project-based organizations, project networks, project business, and the projectification of society. Within these contexts, the Journal encourages submissions on the following topics, among others: governance; strategy; innovation and entrepreneurship; organizational change, learning, capabilities, and routines; information systems and technology; complexity and uncertainty; ethics; leadership; teams; and stakeholder management.
The Journal values contributions both from within and beyond project management to augment and transform theory and practice.
