Guidelines for Discussion Papers

Discussion Papers for The Innovation Journal should be between 2500 and 5000 words long, typed in Times New Roman 12-point, in Word Perfect if possible, and should be submitted electronically.

In contrast to peer-reviewed articles, discussion notes do not have to be full-fledged academic papers. Nevertheless, they should give clear references to all sources and give the reader indications of further reading in the same area where appropriate. Please check the guidelines for peer-reviewed articles for formatting guidance.

Discussion notes will often cover new and topical areas which have not been deeply explored in the academic literature. They will challenge conventional wisdom in practice and they will raise questions to stimulate debate in The Innovation Journal.

This section has a "work in progress" status and does not exclude eventual publication in other journals.
