Call for Papers for PM World Journal

16 January 2013 – The Call for Papers for the February and March editions of the PM World Journal (PMWJ) has been announced.  Project management researchers, experts, professional leaders, practicing project managers and executives of project-oriented organizations are invited to submit an article, paper or story for publication in the monthly PMWJ.  This is an opportunity to share knowledge, get published or gain visibility for yourself and your organization in the global project management community.

The PMWJ seeks articles and papers in the following categories:

  • Featured Paper – professionally researched and referenced paper similar to those presented at professional conferences
  • Case Study – Description of an actual project or program, or how some aspect of program or project management was implemented in an organization
  • Advisory – advice on how to solve a problem or address specific issues related to program or project management
  • Commentary – short article expressing an opinion or point of view about a program or project management-related topic, either general or specific
  • Student Paper – well written research paper by graduate or undergraduate students of project management, often recommended by a professor or teacher
  • Personal Story – short description of a personal experience on a project or related to project management
  • Report – update about PM professional activities, events or developments in a city or region of the world; these can provide information from national societies or local branches and chapters of international bodies
  • Book Review – professionally written review of a project management book (a template can be provided for book reviews)
  • News Stories – articles about actual programs and projects, and P/PM-related research, education, publications, professional activities, events, organizations or people

A separate Category – Second Editions – allows authors to republish papers that have been previously published, presented at a project management conference or event, or originally published in a language other than English.

The PMWJ is a non-refereed eJournal.  For more information, visit https://pmworldjournal.net/authors/.

“The publishing process is easy,” he adds.  “Just email an article or paper to me; we review for appropriateness and grammar, then reformat to a standard layout and return to the author for approval.  Authors don’t wait long for approval or to see their paper published.”

Launched in August 2012, the PMWJ is published at the beginning of each month, so submittals should be received by the 20th of the month to make it into the next edition.
