IJWI is a fully-refereed multi-disciplinary international journal dedicated to the study of work innovation. It proposes and fosters research and discussion on innovative work practices including new forms of work organisation (such as virtual teams, network organisations, teleworking, learning organisations, flexible and dispersed work, etc.) as well as the so-called innovative work practices and philosophy (such as knowledge management, teamwork, lean management, project-based work, outsourcing, etc.).


 Topics covered include

  • Managing new work practices and innovative workplaces
  • Exploring the organisational and social implications of new ways of working
  • Exploring the impacts of innovative work practices in terms of control and power
  • Managing knowledge in new forms of work organisations
  • Exploring the impacts of work innovation on environment, energy and transportation
  • Enhancing distributed work through workplace design and ICTs

More on this journal...

The objective of IJWI is to discuss and disseminate the implications of innovative work practices on individuals, organisations, businesses and societies. Also, contributions aiming at questioning the necessity of transforming current work practices take a front rank in IJWI; it is therefore the intention to produce knowledge simultaneously for and on work innovation management.


IJWI provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers working in the field of new working practices to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


Innovative work practices are discussed from a multidisciplinary perspective; this involves receptiveness to criticism. IJWI publishes original papers, essays and review papers, both theorical and empirical. It also welcomes critical work addressing social and societal issues related to these innovative work practices.
