More on this journal...

The goal of the IJTPM is to provide a forum for the emerging area of policy analysis, decision-making and problem-solving at the intersection of technology, policy and management. IJTPM is a scholarly journal aiming at building up and disseminating the growing body of new theories, practical methods, and experiences in this area. It serves the needs of scientists, policy makers, and professionals in the field by discussing latest theories, state-of-the-art techniques, and applications. Special emphasis is placed on the interaction between theoretical concepts and practical implementations, the exchange between policy analysts, and policy makers and the interface between analytic concepts and human and organisational problem solvers.


Professionals, academics, researchers, and managers.


IJTPM publishes original papers, theory-based empirical papers, review papers, case studies, conference reports, relevant reports and news, book reviews and briefs. Commentaries on papers and reports published in IJTPM are encouraged. Authors will have the opportunity to respond to the commentary on their work before the entire treatment is published.
