Aim and Scope>>>

International Journal of Innovation Studies (IJIS)
is an international,interdisciplinary and peer-reviewed journal that seeks to advance our theoretical and managerial knowledge of innovation.

The Nature of Innovation
Innovation is imperative in today's academic research, but in nature it defies linear analysis and traditional management methods. What are the characteristics of organizations that stimulate successful innovation? What can managers do to create an environment where innovation thrives? How do political leaders and decision makers differentiate between sinkholes and fertile ground when it comes to allocating resources for creative work? How can business harness this illogical, unpredictable force that can be as frustrating as it is valuable

Interdisciplinary Insight on Innovation
During its emerging era, the field of innovation studies was populated by "immigrants" from other disciplines. It thus became intrinsically interdisciplinary in nature - an intellectual "melting pot" characterized by diversity and an eclectic borrowing of cognitive resources from others. In the IJIS, we would like to invite interdisciplinary researchers from economics, sociology, management studies, psychology, etc. to put forth their insights on innovations, so as to promote the incorporation of a broad and heterogeneous mix of research activities, as well as the engagement in fruitful intercourse with social scientists from different disciplines and fields.

The Future of Innovation Studies
In the past, we have witnessed how innovation changed the world: an earth flattened by the internet and the upheavals in music industry, reading habits and social networking by innovative companies such as Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook. Yet, innovation studies as the discipline by large failed to update its new research methods regards how to understand the 21st century's innovations. Thus, what can scholars in innovation studies do to follow up future technology and its impacts? In this new era, governments may also need to adopt a more entrepreneurial approach towards innovation policy, can researchers in innovation studies provide a better understanding of the interaction between policy-making and innovation activities? IJIS invites scholars to look forward and to discuss future directions of innovation studies.
