Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Managing Projects in Business seeks to advance the theory, research and practice of all aspects of project management.

IJMPB is looking for top quality theoretical and empirical research with the aims of:

  • promoting the understanding of project management and;
  • encouraging the publication of novel project management insights using multidisciplinary approaches rooted in social sciences.

The journal provides a much-needed resource involved in project management by exploring new avenues not often addressed in the field of project management. 


"The journal is unique as it publishes papers that challenge the status quo in project management. It has established itself as the journal where theory meets practice. Papers have solid theoretical underpinnings, but are able to engage the practitioner as results and findings are operationalized to practice. There have been several special issues that have challenged conventional project management thinking and theory has been developed from situated practice. A key strength of the journal centers on its ability to provide readers with a nexus between theory and practice. Building such a bridge is not easy, but the vision and leadership of the Editor has enabled this to happen. For students, academics and practitioners of project management the papers published in this journal provide the knowledge needed to successfully lead, deliver and manage projects now and in the future."
