More on this journal...

IJTIP aims to further the development of the field of technology intelligence and planning and related disciplines. A particular goal is to connect the research done by academics and by professionals in the field and to link it to research streams on organisational decision making and learning.


IJTIP intends to disseminate knowledge and establish channels of communication between policy makers, professionals and experts working in universities, research institutions, as well as industry.


IJTIP publishes original papers, theory-based empirical papers, review papers, case studies with profound implications for theory, conference reports, relevant technology intelligence and planning reports, book reviews and research notes. Commentaries on papers and reports published in the journal are encouraged. Authors will have the opportunity to respond to the commentary on their work before the entire treatment is published. Special issues devoted to important topics in technology intelligence and planning, and related topics, will be published occasionally.
