Aims & Scope

The IEEE Engineering Management Review, the Society's "journal of practice," publishes papers and articles consisting of original content that serves those who manage technology, engineering and innovation (including non-engineers); engineers who hold strategic leadership responsibilities (even if outside of the practice of engineering); and upward-bound engineers with an interest in management as a profession.
