The scope of the Engineering Economics journal covers the research that considers innovations-driven change in business, public and financial domains, which contribute to a qualitative transformation of economies. The Journal aims to shed light on antecedents, processes and outcomes of the ongoing transformation to mobilize managerial and policy efforts to shape the transformative potential of technological and other innovations toward a more sustainable future.
The Journal represents research from different disciplines such as technology and operations management, industrial economics and management, information systems, consumer marketing, public management, finance and economics as long as “creative destruction” is visible in the form of innovations-driven change and dynamics, improvements or concerns. By its very nature, technological, primarily digital innovations, are the most exponent and visible form of novelty recently. The Journal does not publish papers that deal with engineering issues. The Journal publishes research that considers different levels of analysis, such as macro, meso and micro levels. Papers employing all empirical methods are welcome. The Journal does not publish research that proves relationships through exceptionally mathematical reasoning. The Journal does not publish conceptual papers except systematic literature review papers using bibliometric analysis methods.
