Instructions to the Authors

The International Journal of Engineering and Management (IJEM) is a refereed research journal which aims to promote the links between engineering and management. The journal focuses on issues related to the development and implementation of new methodologies and technologies, which improve the operational objectives of an organization. These include, among others, product development, human resources management, project management, logistics, production management, e-commerce, quality management, financial planning, risk management, and decision support systems. Thus, the journal provides a forum for researchers and practitioners for the publication of innovative scholarly research, which contributes to the adoption of a new holistic managerial approach that ensures a technologically, economically, socially and ecologically acceptable deployment of new technologies in business practice.
