Project Management Research and Practice

Greater attention is needed on the humanitarian dimensions, uses and applications of projects and project management. Researchers can provide relevant evidence-based information to empower practitioners, and Project Management Research and Practice has been conceived, developed and published to do this. Research papers, practitioner articles, and other high quality submissions will be published to contribute to the broader conversation of how projects and their management can affect meaningful, socially-responsible change in support of public priorities. Climate action, health and well-being, education, sustainable consumption, smart cities and renewable energy are a few of these many topics.


PMRP editors believe that  a better world is possible where humanity's problems are alleviated through innovative projects and socially responsible project management research and practice. Its mission is to provide a forum where evidence-based, informed dialogue can occur with project management researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders on such challenges.


The role of projects in addressing these challenges needs to be understood but not the singular focus of research and/or practitioner journals in the project management community. PMRP has changed that and wants to work with any contributor interested in these important conversations.

Provincial China
Archived

Provincial China is a peer reviewed journal publishing research on the contemporary People's Republic of China. Research in this field needs to address the consequences of the inherent variation in social and economic development across the country. During the reform era, in particular, as the provincial-level political and administrative hierarchy has increased in importance, and with new emphases on provincial and local identities, research needs to focus less on the centre and more on regional and local developments and diversification. This is the particular perspective of Provincial China. Provincial China contains sections on statistics; theoretical perspectives and discussion; news of projects in progress; professional activities, conferences and workshops; information about sources, documents and materials; ideas and information about provinces in general; and photos.
