EMR-A Call for Contributors

The IEEE EMR, the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS) journal of practice, will transition to original content in 2018. EMR serves those who manage technology, engineering and innovation. We encourage and seek original submissions from thought leaders in practice and academia.

The intended audience of EMR includes those who:

  • Have an interest in management as a profession
  • Manage the activities of engineers and related technology professionals
  • Hold managerial or strategic leadership responsibilities
  • Seek upward-bound opportunities as technology professionals
  • Prepare for leadership responsibilities in managing engineering, technology and innovation
  • Manage programs and projects
  • Operate in a global environment

The EMR, a journal of practice, presents state-of-the-art thinking and practices from original contributions that are based on actual practice or strong academic theoretical foundation.

EMR structure includes seven topical engineering management departments with an assigned associate editor to each; along with an associate editor for the technology manager’s notebook series.

The departments are meant to support the “TEMS… people enabling product success …” vision:

  • Moving Product/Services from Idea to Market
    • Technology, Innovation Management, and Entrepreneurship (TIME)
  • Identifying and Implementing Successful Projects, and Systems
    • Project Management
    • Models and Methodologies
    • Manufacturing and Supply Chain Systems
  • Integrating Technology for Capability and Productivity
    • Information Technology
  • Developing from Engineer to Leader
    • People and Organizations
    • Leadership and Strategy
  • Balancing the Norms of Society, Government, and Regulators
    • Sustainability

We also encourage articles for the Technology Manager’s Notebook. These articles are shorter vignettes around issues concerning current engineering practice and technological developments. These items will undergo editorial and/or peer review. Regular submissions may include critical analyses, case studies, practical implications of research based empirical studies, practical applications, technology forecasting and insights from analytical modeling.

Shorter Articles and Case Studies – 2000-4000 words; Longer Articles and Reviews – 7500-10000 words.

Submissions can be made to emr@wpi.edu. Longer articles will undergo double blind review; shorter articles will undergo editorial and/or peer review. For further information either contact: Editor-in-Chief Joseph Sarkis – emr@wpi.edu.
