Submit to IEEE Engineering Management Review (EMR)

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.

The intended audience 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.

Surveys have shown that the EMR is a highly respected and valued journal in providing insights in management of engineering and technology in a worldwide economy. An IEEE survey in 2014 showed the EMR ranking right under the Harvard Business Review.

The EMR is published quarterly in March, June, September, and December.

We encourage original submissions from thought leaders in practice and academia. The journal structure is group into six topical engineering management departments with an assigned associate editor to each.

These departments and topics fit within 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 are shorter vignettes around issues concerning current engineering practice.

We look forward to publishing a broad variety of submissions including critical analyses, case studies, practical implications of empirical studies, practical applications, 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

For further information either contact: Editor-in-Chief Joseph Sarkis – emr@wpi.edu or one of the Departmental Associate Editors.
