PMJ Call for Papers: Special Issue on Project Transitions

PMI’s Project Management Journal (PMJ) is now accepting papers for a special issue on Project Transitions. While a great deal of research focuses on the specificities of various project phases, there are a number of technical, organizational, economic, and managerial challenges relating to the transitions across the phases. Transitional issue examples include, but are far from limited to, challenges such as the handover of data and knowhow, change in the workforce, and scope management.

Surprisingly, transition-related project phenomena remain remarkably under-investigated. Addressing transitional issues in projects is important not only for creating projects that deliver value to their respective organizations, users, and operators but also to maintain a more effective delivery while moving from one phase to the next.

Contributions to this special issue can be theoretical or empirical, based on any project-related topic concerning transitions. Authors may choose to focus on transitions across the temporal phases of the system’s life as the main conceptual framework. However, the special issue editors strongly encourage contributions addressing project transitions under new or different conceptual lenses.

Editors for this special issue are:

  • Giorgio Locatelli, School of Civil Engineering, University of Leeds
  • Vedran Zerjav, The Bartlett School of Construction & Project Management, University College London
  • Gary Klein, College of Business, University of Colorado

The deadline for papers is 31 January 2019. For more information on the special issue, visit https://www.pmi.org/learning/publications/project-management-journal/special-issue-project-transitions.

General submission guidelines are available from the journal publisher, SAGE, at https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/project-management-journal/journal203528#submission-guidelines.

To submit a paper, visit the journal submission site at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pmj.
