10 July 2016– Dallas, London, Sydney – PM World has announced that 30 new articles, papers and other original works about program and project management (P/PM) have been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) this month.  These contributions by 36 different authors in 16 different countries were published in the July 2016 edition of the PM World Journal (PMWJ).  They can now be found among the most recent papers, articles and book reviews on the PMWL home page at www.pmworldlibrary.net.

150409-pmwj33-40-PMWL logoThe new additions bring the total in the PM World Collection to over 1805 original works by more than 790 different authors in 60+ countries.  The collection is growing each month by approximately 30 new works by many different authors; of the 36 authors this month,14 were new to the journal and library.  Profiles of all authors in the library, along with access to their works, can be found at http://pmworldlibrary.net/author-showcase/.

According to PMWL Director David Pells, “We are publishing papers from more developing economies each month, places where project management is being taught in graduate schools and where PM is being taken very seriously.  It seems that our sharing of knowledge is going in all directions now, east to west, south to south, south to north and so forth.  What a great trend!”

New authors in June included Junaid Aftab (Pakistan), Muhammad Shakil Ahmad (Pakistan), Uzma Anjum (Pakistan), Charles Bokor (Canada), Louise Hart (Australia), Kim Hobson (USA), Tariq Hussain (Canada), Ali Haider Khan (Pakistan), Bilal Khan (Pakistan), Sherri Norris (USA), Abdul Wahid Sherani (Pakistan), Badri Srinivasan (India) and Chrisjan R. van Wyk (South Africa). New works from 22 authors already included in the library were also added.

“The Brexit vote in the UK on 23 June was a major political event with global repercussions affecting many projects,” Pells adds.  “Three authors in the UK provided articles with perspectives on the aftermath.  This is also a great trend.  Project managers and project-oriented organizations are often affected by both local and international events. If this is the case where you are, please share your experience or perspective in a report or commentary article for the journal.”

In addition to the original papers, more news articles were added to the library archives this month, bringing the total to well over 1,500 articles.  News archives can be accessed at http://pmworldlibrary.net/ppm-news/.  See archives of past editions of the PMWJ at http://pmworldlibrary.net/ppm-journals-and-magazines/.
