        Submission Guidelines

    Manuscripts should be submitted online via EASYCHAIR.

    1.    Competitive Papers: Submissions of fully developed papers are appropriate for consideration for competitive sessions. Competitive papers must be 10 - 20 pages, double-spaced, 12-point font, including appendices and references. These papers will be presented in formal competitive session formats. Please note that reviewers may recommend less-developed papers be accepted as developmental papers for discussion in a more interactive format.

    2.    Developmental Papers: Shorter manuscripts or work-in-progress that could benefit from informal feedback from other participants and the JPIM editorial team are appropriate for submission as a developmental paper. These papers will be presented in an interactive workshop session held in a roundtable discussion format that allows for interaction with other researchers with similar interests. Papers should be 5 to 10 pages long, double-spaced, 12-point font.

    3.    Poster submissions: A short summary of a research study that is an early or preliminary work. The poster length is up to 5 pages, double-spaced, 12-point font. Posters will be presented on large boards for viewing and discussion. A poster competition will be held with voting by attendees for the Best Poster Award

    4.   Special Session Proposals: We welcome proposals for special topic/panel sessions. Emerging topics on innovation in times of dynamic change and global challenges are particularly welcomed. A proposal, no more than 3 pages, double-spaced, 12-point font, should include:

    o   the title of the proposed special session 

    o   names and affiliations of presenters

    o   a brief description of the session theme, its relevance and importance to product innovation and management


    Selection of special topics/ panel sessions will be limited and based on relevance and quality of the topic proposed. We encourage the submission of new topics that are important in advancing the field of new product development and innovation management.

    For your online submission, adhere to the following guidelines:
