Project Management Journal (PMJ) Call for Submissions



28 August 2017 – Philadelphia, PA, USA – The Project Management Institute (PMI®) is now accepting submissions for upcoming Special Editions of the Project Management Journalâ (PMJ) and a new section on Cases.

Process Studies of Project Organizing

PMJ seeks submissions inspired by the premises of process ontology that apply process thinking to documents and reveal the intricacies of project management and organizing as they unfold over time—editors are not looking for models reducing processes to sequences of stable stages. Inspiration for this special issue can be found in organization studies, where process ontology has, in recent years, gained prominence, turning upside down how phenomena are conceived. The submission deadline is 31 August 2017.

Exploratory Projects

With this special issue, PMJ welcomes contributions in the following areas: 1) research that sheds new light on the actor’s practices in exploratory projects, 2) the validity of the management principles proposed in the literature, 3) the functions and roles of the actors in teams involved in exploratory projects, 4) the relationship between the project and its parent organization, 5) the role of exploratory projects in creation of the ecosystem, 6) the type of cognitive process used during these types of projects. Deadline for paper submissions: 28 February 2018

Teaching Cases

PMJ is also now accepting teaching cases for publication consideration. With the rise of experiential learning, case studies have gained traction as a fundamental teaching tool in every subject area, and they have proven to be the most requested instructional resource by project management faculty internationally. PMJ is responding to the needs of instructors by launching a new section that provides full-length cases and instructor’s manuals for classroom or consulting use. PMJ invites submissions of cases designed for classroom use. Cases from all business disciplines related to projects will be considered. Submit your case now.
