International in scope and readership, The International Journal of Professional Management is a multidisciplinary journal, publishing articles on organisation theory and behaviour, strategic and human resource management - from empirical studies and theoretical developments to practical applications.
Call for Primers
IJPM plans to create a series of short introductory texts on key management topics that have current relevance for business. These are for busy managers who haven’t got time to read extensive papers or text books, for students who want to get a basic grip of the subject before starting a deeper study, and for careerists who vaguely know about a given topic and want to clarify what it is about.
If we get a sufficient number of contributions of suitable quality and topic range, there is a possibility of creating an IJPM book of Management Primers.
The first of these has been published (Volume 9, Issue 2, March 2014). The topic is ‘Sustainability.’ This is not a template, but just to give an idea of the type of paper we want – 1000-3000 words that can act as a summary or as a starting point, depending on the wishes of the reader.
Topics for the future could include:
|Arts-based initiatives||Online learning|
|Coaching and mentoring||Risk management|
|Corporate social responsibility||Shadow side|
|Creativity and innovation||Small business development|
|Cross-cultural ventures||Social media|
|Difficult conversations||Sports and business|
|E-learning||Supply chain management|
|Emotional intelligence||Team building|
|Employability||Total quality management|
|Employee engagement||Voluntary sector|
|Gender issues||Work-based learning|
This is by no means exhaustive. As always, IJPM is looking for work on ‘activities that impact personal or organisational development.’
Please send any papers, ideas, or questions you may have to:
