IJIC and Project Management Institute announce new partnership
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
8 July 2019
The International Journal of Instructional Cases (IJIC) and Project Management Institute (PMI) are pleased to announce a new development in their existing partnership to meet the lack of a professional publication outlet for concise teaching cases in project management for academic and professional use.
Both organizations will collaborate to establish a track within IJIC dedicated to concise teaching cases in project management (including operations, logistics, supply chain management, and other related subcategories). The journal will also set up a dedicated mini-site on the IJIC website that will be devoted to project management and tackle the challenges in sharing knowledge and experience between academic experts in project management and Project Managers themselves.
Concise cases in project management are welcomed for review and can be submitted in either English or Spanish. As with all IJIC cases, accepted cases will be published in both languages.
IJIC is a double-blind, peer-reviewed, electronic publication with ongoing release of instructional cases and related materials for use in classroom and boardroom settings. The journal only publishes concise teaching cases with expanded teaching notes. The cases are short (four pages or fewer) but the teaching notes are extensive, providing rich instructional assistance. It has already published several project management cases which have been aligned with PMI as a bronze sponsor of the journal in the past.
As the world’s largest not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession, PMI seeks to advance the profession through resources for project management scholars, faculty, professionals, and students.
“PMI Academic Programs is pleased to support the work of the International Journal of Instructional Cases,” said Heather Ramsey, Manager of PMI Academic Programs. “Instructional case studies are a valuable tool to provide rich and powerful learning experiences for students seeking to grow their knowledge and skills in project management and related fields.”
IJIC Publisher, Rob Edwards, adds, “We are delighted to have strengthened our existing partnership with PMI and excited to support the continued authorship and publication of concise project management case studies via this new initiative”.
