Publishing Criteria

We publish articles to advance knowledge and strategies in the field of innovation management. It is important that the theories and tips you provide be translatable into action. Topics that our audience find the most helpful include leadership tactics, creativity exercises, academic or in-depth research into innovation management and idea management, and global trends in business development, sustainability, and economic growth.

Apart from articles sharing innovation insights and strategies, we welcome case studies, reports, white papers and in-depth articles, book reviews, interviews, and more.

Publishing with us gives you the opportunity to reach a diverse network of innovation management practitioners and provides an excellent means to increase recognition and branding. We are happy to include your contact information and a link to your organization in the “About the Author” section. Self-promotional articles or those promoting a client will be rejected.

We do not accept articles or listicles focusing on marketing or marketing platforms, essay writing services, SEO and related services, software, web or app development, VPN services, or cryptocurrency, and we reserve the right to reject submissions that we do not believe meet our guidelines for content or quality.

Prior to submitting your article, please thoroughly review and copy edit your text.
