PEOPLE Case Studies Editors and Sections

The Publisher and Editor-in-Chief continues to be Eleanor Glor. She is deeply grateful to the editors, editorial board, staff and authors who have contributed to TIJ and LRI during the past two years.

Associate Editor, Mario Rivera. We are privileged to have Mario Rivera, Regents’ Professor of public administration at the University of New Mexico and a former colleague of Everett Rogers, as our Senior Associate Editor-in-Chief. For those who do not know, a regents’ professor is appointed by the regents of a university as a whole, and is a distinguished professorship. Mario brings great depth and breadth of knowledge of public administration and public sector innovation and considerable experience editing other journals to our team. He and James D. Ward as contributing editor produced a fine issue on Ethics, Volume 15(2), 2010.

Among many gifts, Mario brought the services of Erin Engelbrecht as Editorial Research Associate, for 18 months, and a unique journal email address, to us. Erin has recently completed her position, and Mario has arranged to replace her with Jacob Candelaria. Jacob is a Princeton graduate in Economics and a graduate student at the University of New Mexico. He worked for a couple of years as a program evaluator with the State of New Mexico Legislative Finance Committee and now serves as Policy Director for the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty, a leading—if not legendary—advocacy group in the state with ties to the National Center on Law and Poverty.

Case Studies Editor, Juliana Trichilo Cina, who works in the publication industry, edited three fine case studies during 2009, involving Canada, Cuba, Germany and Africa.

La revue de l’innovation : La revue de l’innovation dans le secteur public editors Hachimi Sanni Yaya, Editor and Ian Roberge, Assistant Editor. La revue de l’innovation : La revue de l’innovation dans le secteur public est de plus en plus active en français. L’éditeur est Sanni Yaya de l’Université d’Ottawa et l’éditeur-adjoint est Ian Roberge, Directeur du département de science politique, Collège Glendon, Université York.

Book Essays and Book Reviews Editor, Howard Doughty. Howard Doughty, an experienced journal editor-in-chief, oversaw the publication of 9 book reviews during 2009 and 22 during 2010. Howard wrote 6 himself during 2009 and 22 during 2010. He is delighted that some contributions have been promised (and are now being provided) by some editorial board members and more would be welcome.

Discussion Papers Editor, Vacant. TIJ has not been able to recruit a Discussion Papers editor, and the section has languished as a result. Would a member of the Editorial Board be interested in taking on this role?

Editorial Board

We renewed the editorial board during 2010, and have added some interesting new capacity. Thank you to the board members who have moved on to other challenges, most of whom served with us for many years: Sandford Borins, Otto Brodtrick, Roli Varma, Luc Bernier, Mohamed Charih, Bill Eimicke, Pan Kim, Wendy Macdonald, and Paula Tiihonen. The new members include Steven Kelman of Harvard University, Muhiuddin Haider of Maryland University, Una Medina of the University of New Mexico, and Juan de Dios Pineda of the University of New Mexico, who brings knowledge of Latin America. Both Muhiuddin Haider and Una Medina worked with Everett Rogers, the dean of innovation studies.We are most grateful to the members of the editorial board remaining with us.

We have a very strong, knowledgeable and experienced board as a result.

The membership of the Editorial Board remains the second-most requested page in TIJ. For a list of the Editorial Board members, please see Appendix A.

La Revue de l’innovation : Rapport annuel intégré 2009-2010
En 2009, la revue publia un numéro spécial entièrement en français sur la gestion de la qualité dans le secteur public. Nassera Touati et Gérard Divay de l’École nationale d’administration publique (ENAP) coordonnèrent la publication de ce numéro. En plus au cours de l’année, La revue publia un article d’un chercheur luxembourgeois et publia une recension. En 2010, La revue publia trois articles, un dans chaque numéro, et une recension.

Les éditeurs continuent à travailler fort pour accroître la visibilité de La revue. Ils prennent note que le deuxième article le plus lu sur le site cette année est un article en français publié en 2003. Ils remarquent également que la France se classe au huitième rang avec 1764 visites en ce qui concerne la provenance des visiteurs sur le site web. Dr. Yaya et Dr. Roberge participèrent activement, d’ailleurs, au re-design du site web de La revue. Les éditeurs espèrent toujours que cette productivité accrue amènera plus de visibilité à La revue, favorisant ainsi de nouvelles soumissions et contributions.

Il nous faut, aussi, prendre note des nouveaux membres sur le Conseil de rédaction, dont Dr. Carole Lalonde, Université Laval, Maximilien N. Tereraho, Ressources humaines et développement des connaissances Canada, et Nassera Touati (ENAP). Ce service est apprécié. Au début de l’année 2012, La revue publiera un numéro sur l’Innovation et les droits de propriété/Innovation and Property Rights et poursuivra ses efforts afin d’accroître son impact ainsi que ses lecteurs.

Publication Record

The Innovation Journal continues to publish three times per year, on time. During 2009, we published twenty-one peer-reviewed articles (we have returned to this terminology), three case studies, one discussion paper, eighteen book reviews, and three introductions/ conclusions. During 2010, 18 peer-reviewed papers, three case studies, 23 book reviews two introductory essays, and no discussion papers were published.

Average review time to a decision or publication for 60 papers reviewed during 2010 was 6.5 months (one was withdrawn due to the long review time). There was a 42% acceptance rate and a 58% rejection rate.

Citation Record

Google Scholar shows TIJ being cited 366 times.

Indexers and Aggregators

TIJ is aggregated by:
1. The H.W. Wilson Company Full Text Database
3. Cabell’s Directory
4. CSA Worldwide Political Science Abstracts (a ProQuest index)
5. Proquest
6. Scopus
7. Citeyoulike


Readership occurs four ways: (1) Reprints, (2) Purchases from aggregators, (3) Purchases directly from TIJ and LRI, (4) Readers who read in or download from the website.

(1) Reprints. Two articles have been reprinted in the IEEE Engineering Management Review.

(2) Purchases from aggregators. We do not receive reports on how many times articles from TIJ and LRI are downloaded from aggregators.

(3) Purchases directly from our journal. Another 800 copies of the book Is Innovation a Question of Will or Circumstance? by E.D. Glor were purchased during 2009.

(4) Readership directly on the website. Please find attached readership reports for The Innovation Journal for 2009-10 and 2010. Web addresses ending in .net and .com are commercial addresses. Most of these, and the “no entry” category, are search engines and aggregators. The remainder is individuals.

Concerning individual readers:
* Readership continues to be very high: During 2009 we were read from 150 countries, by 101,657 unique visitors; during 2010 by 101,388 visitors, from 153 counties, plus the readers with .net and .com email addresses. There are 192 embers in the UN, but they have not all been assigned Internet addresses.
* Readership has consistently grown since 2005, and showed another leap during 2010. TIJ had between 45,000 and 50,000 page views per month in 2005, growing to between 100,000 and 135,000 per month during 2010.
* Each reader accessed TIJ a mean of 3.6 times during 2009 and 2010. This is good news, as it indicates our readers return and they consider our issues (or perhaps our new issues) worth checking out.

* The most read files during 2010 were the following, in order:

o Management Tools For Creating Government Responsiveness: The Liquor Control Board of Ontario as a Context for Creating Change, by Rosemary McInerney and David Barrows, Volume 7(3), 2002.
o Vers une nouvelle relation : stratégie/système d’information, by Mohamed Jaouad El Qasmi et Abdelaziz Kriouile, Volume 8(4), 2003.
o Classic Theories – Contemporary Applications: A comparative study of the implementation of innovation in Canadian and Chinese Public Sector environments, by Michael Miles, Arun Thangaraj, Wang Dawei, and Ma Huiqin, Volume 7, No. 3, 2002.
o Does Full Accrual Accounting Enhance Accountability? by Thomas H. Beechy, Volume 12(3), 2007.
o Testing a Diffusion of Innovations in Education Model (DIEM), by Mark K. Warford, Volume 10(3), 2005.

* We were accessed most often from the following countries, in order, from the top and declining: two commercial addresses (could be largely search engines), Canada, American educational institutions, United Kingdom, Australia, France, South Africa, and the Netherlands, followed by the US, Germany, Singapore, the USA Government, Morocco, non-profit organizations, the US Military, New Zealand, India and Belgium.

* Home Pages. We have a separate counter on each of the home pages. TIJ and LRI home pages were visited as follows.
* TIJ Home Page: From March 7, 2010 to January 9, 2011: 10, 314 times
* La Revue Home Page: From 1 Jan 2004 to January 9, 2011: 12,631 times

The most common entrance pages were the index, followed by specific articles with high readership. For more information, please see Appendix B.


We redesigned and republished the website during 2009. Thank you to Mario Rivera, Ian Roberge and Sanni Yaya for input. This may have caused some (hopefully short term) problems with indexers and aggregators. Christian Sauve did the redesign and Ronald Shearer is the webmaster.

Should TIJ Develop a Presence in Other Social Media?
While TIJ and LRI have a presence on the Internet and through email, new social media have emerged since we were established in 1995. Many journals now have a presence in Facebook but we do not. The editor-in-chief does not have the capacity to develop this. Would anyone else be willing to take on this task?
