International Journal of Project Management: A review of the first ten years
Abstract
Abstract The management of projects within various industrial sectors is an internationally recognised professional discipline which enjoys support from a small but growing community of researchers, scholars and enquiring practitioners. Specialist academic and professional journals which serve the field are relatively new. One of the prime journals, the International Journal of Project Management , celebrated ten years of continuous publication in 1992. In the ten years since its inception, the International Journal of Project Management has reached a level of stability in terms of the numbers of papers it publishes. Its papers predominantly review practical experience and literature. Some case studies have been published, but relatively few published papers have been based on empirical data. Most of the papers contribute interesting insights and describe new techniques, but few have contributed to the more formal aspects of the development of the discipline of project management by building and testing models and theories. The papers address a broad range of aspects of project management in an increasingly wide variety of industrial sectors, although the construction industry remains predominant. The journal attracts papers from practitioners and academics from various types of department, in both cases from many parts of the world. The journal has achieved a great deal in providing a forum for scholarly insights and debate about project management. However, progress has been less dramatic in terms of the development of the underlying theoretical basis of project management. Given that no other journals appear to fulfil this role, the paper concludes by speculating on the future development of project management as a discipline.

This study examines whether any regularity exists in the publication pattern among real estate researchers. Identifying an empirical regularity in research output is useful since it helps assess both the likelihood of multiple publications and the degree of author concentration among different journals. The empirical results reveal that a strong bibliometric regularity exists in the real estate literature: the number of authors publishing n papers is approximately 1/n^c of those publishing one p...

The Journal Nature began publication in 1869 and Science magazine in 1880. Since that time these multidisciplinary journals have achieved the status of perhaps the most widely read science journals in the world. Some quantitative aspects of the publication patterns in these journals were dealth with in a few previous studiesJ s In. this flash we examine the distribution of n~tional publication productivity and citation impact in the two weeklies during the 1981-1985 five years period.

Bibliometrics, informetrics, scientometrics and librametrics are four measuring techniques in libary and information science. These are analogous, or rather synonymous, terms with intermingled aims and objectives and as such they need some elucidation. This paper discusses their scope, application, development and potential in solving various problems pertaining to library and inforamtion sciences

The purpose of this article is to analyse the strategy of managerial professionalizatin through educational reform as it has been attempted in Britain during the course of the 1980s. This strategy-whatever its internal contradictions and inherent weaknesses- is located within the longer-term historical context in which British management has developed. In turn, this brief historical analysis is complemented by an assessment of the feasibility of the strategy of professionalization in relatin to ...

In an attempt to further amplify the characteristics of the cardiovascular serial literature, citation patterns were studied. As previously shown, one-third of the 5,860 papers from the National Heart Institute grantees for 1967 appeared within 13 journals (3). After the exclusion of the abstract journals, the remaining journals were used to obtain a basic pool of 300 cardiovascular related articles. Science Citation Index was used to gather statistics relative to citing author, journal and year...

Large samples of papers published in theJournal of Biological Chemistry in all decades and in some mid-decades werechecked in order to study the referencing pattern, throughout the period 1910–1985, in an internationally leading journal, with especially high “citation impact”. All measures show that there has been a significant growth in the number of references per paper, during most of the period, but mainly from the 1950's on, refuting Meadows' “upper limit”. A detailed comparison to a wide r...

This exploratory case-based study investigates the development of project management (PM) as an organisational capability in two public sector organisations (PSO) during a period of rapid environmental change. Within the PM literature, the concept of project management capability (PMC) and how it develops over time through organizational learning is still an emerging tradition led to date by mainly European scholars (Lindkvist, Soderlund, Davies, Brady, Hobday, etc.). This investigation locates ...

Despite the overwhelming advantages of using an IT project management methodology, organizations are rarely able to motivate their staff to use them. While empirical research states that the usefulness of a methodology is the single most important determinant of its acceptance and use by actual users, studies have not examined which aspects of usefulness are more important for which type of people in which situations. Our study is a step toward filling the gap in methodology evaluation, developm...

This paper presents a critical review of the literature populating the project management body of knowledge from 1980 to 2010. The paper concluded with a presentation of the various views on the project management schools of thought as a consolidation mechanism to provide a sense of direction to the developments occurring within the discipline. The review of literature presented is gathered through an exhaustive forward chaining/backward chaining process.

While project management (PM) has become an almost constituting element of modern public organisations, empirical research on PM in the civil service, let alone government offices, has been overlooked. In this article, we will on the basis of public organisation recruitment efforts illustrated through a textual analysis of job adverts for the Danish Civil Service, analyse how the individual roles related to project management in civil service organisation from 1982 until 2011 has emerged in term...
