A Fresh Look for Research-Technology Management

Industrial Research Institute Journal Launches New Design

A Fresh Look for Research-Technology Management

Arlington, treatment VA, January 6, 2012 – Research-Technology Management (RTM), the official journal of the Industrial Research Institute (IRI), unveils a new design and layout for the year 2012 and beyond. As a demonstration of the commitment to innovation offered by the IRI, RTM is renewing its look and reworking the approach taken by the journal to providing high quality, practitioner-focused content that its readers have come to rely on over the years.

“We sought out a way to modernize our approach to providing professional content while leaving in place, and streamlining, those aspects which are the mainstay of our journal,” remarked Jim Euchner, Chief Editor of RTM. “Minor changes have been made to the names of several sections. The content remains what our readers expect, but packaged in a more accessible way. Other exciting changes you will have to see for yourself.”

The new design launches with the January-February 2012 issue. Among the changes is a revival of the original and widely popular “Managers at Work” column where R&D practitioners offer personal insights into a realm of technology and innovation management. The personal interviews with R&D leaders that previously filled this space have been kept, but have their own column named “Innovation C-Scape.” A section has also been added for updating readers about the findings and progress of the IRI’s innovative Research-on-Research working groups

“The time and effort our Board of Editors and staff have put into renewing and invigorating RTM are significant to the quality and feel of the journal,” stated Ed Bernstein, IRI president. “We think you’ll continue to enjoy the quality of content this journal offers and, with the redesign, believe that you’ll find it easier to track our work and get more involved with what we’re doing!”

Contact the IRI office for a complimentary copy of RTM’s January-February 2012 issue.

Call for papers

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, I would like to inform you of the:

University Center
Chicago, Illinois, USA
6-8 July, 2012

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Twelfth International Conference on Knowledge, Culture, and Change Management. The Management Conference and its companion journal are devoted to those intangible drivers which determine not only the livability of organizations for insiders, and their credibility and attraction to outsiders; but also their tangible results in the form of efficiency, effectiveness and productivity. The intangibles of knowledge, culture and change management do not appear on balance sheets, but ultimately do have an enormous impact on ‘bottom lines’.

We are pleased to host the Management Conference this year at the University Center in Chicago, Illinois. Chicago is the third-largest city in the United States with a rich history of industry, innovation, and culture. It was ranked by Forbes Magazine as the 5th most economically powerful city in the world, and the Chicago Area is the home to twelve Fortune Global 500 companies, including Boeing, Kraft Foods, Motorola, and McDonalds.

In addition to an impressive line-up of international plenary speakers, the conference will also include paper presentations, roundtable discussions, workshops, and colloquia submitted by practitioners, teachers and researchers. Please refer to the Call-for-Papers for proposal submission guidelines and descriptions of sessions. Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of Knowledge, Culture, and Change Management. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available.

Visit our website for more information about the conference, our submission process and this year’s themes, to sign up for our monthly e-newsletter, and to become an active member of our community. It is all available at: http://www.ManagementConference.com

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 19 January 2012. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date.

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in Chicago in July 2012.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Kathryn Sloane Weisbaum
