Project Management Journal (PMJ): Call for Teaching Cases

Categories: PMJ

PMI’s Project Management Journal (PMJ) is 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. See the Call for Submissions for more details. 
 
Your contributions to advance the project management profession are invaluable and PMJ continues to have a strong following. In fact, we are delighted that Thomson Reuters’ recently published 2016 Journal Citation Report showed an increase in PMJ’s Impact Factors from 1.765 to 2.714. This notable improvement reflects the collective efforts of our authors and editors with whom PMI Academic Resources and PMI Publications are honored to collaborate.  
 
We are also pleased to announce that all visitors to www.pmi.org now have access to both current and archive editions of the Journal, whether or not they have an account.  On the PMJ homepage, visitors may access current articles in HTML format or download each issue as a single PDF.  They will also find an “Access back issues” link at the bottom of the page. In addition, “Early View” articles are now being posted as downloadable PDFs on the PMJ Early View page.  
 
Your ongoing engagement is vital to the PMJ’s mission to deliver critical thinking about project management to scholars and practitioners of project management and to project-oriented organizations.  Thank you for your patience and understanding. Together, we will make a difference in promoting the value of project management!
