Research-Technology Management Seeks Special Issue Submissions:
R&D Portfolio Management
Guest Editors: Scott Mathews and Dr. John D. Evans
Research-Technology Management, the award-winning journal of the Industrial Research Institute (http://www.iriweb.org), seeks articles for a special issue on R&D portfolio management. The focus of this special issue is new approaches in R&D portfolio management: how it differs from project portfolio management and how the two may flow one to the other, how uncertainty is resolved, how intellectual property and technology endeavors can be integrated, and how high attrition rates can be managed.
RTM is looking for articles that explore the evolving landscape of R&D portfolio management and its implications for corporate strategy and R&D investments. Specifically, we’re interested in exploring successful implementations of new and more powerful methods combined with the application of business analytics.
This special issue is intended to provide a comprehensive update to RTM’s compendium Successful Portfolio Management. The ideal submission will provide concrete examples to support theories about R&D portfolio design and operation, innovation processes, investment strategies, and result outcomes. We are also interested in explorations of the decision support systems and organizational issues that must be addressed to implement such systems. Successful submissions will offer readers practical information they can put to work immediately.
To be considered for the special issue, articles should be submitted by November 1, 2012 via RTM’s Editorial Manager system at http://www.editorialmanager.com/rtm/. Please select Special Issue Article as the article type and note the special issue title in the appropriate space.
RTM is a journal for practitioners by practitioners. Since 1958, we have published peer-reviewed articles that map the cutting edge in R&D management, illustrate how management theory can be applied to real situations, and give R&D managers the tools to promote innovation throughout their organizations.
RTM articles are concise and practice centered. We prefer submissions at around 3,500 words, although we will occasionally publish truly groundbreaking pieces as long as 5,000 words. For more information, please see RTM author’s guidelines and submission requirements.
