The first number of European Journal of Workplace Innovation is now published

The first number of a new online jounal, European Journal of Workplace Innovation (EJWI), is now published and online: www.ejwi.eu

The journal is associated with a EU-project, initiated by the European Commission, to create a European Workplace Innovation Network  (EUWIN).

http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/innovation/policy/workplace-innovation/euwin/index_en.htm

The journal is edited by an international editorial board, but the Department of Working Life and Innovation at the University of Agder (UiA) is the publisher.

There is a overview of the journal in EUWIN’s February bulletin, reprinted below.

EJWI will be an open-access, net-based, peer reviewed, English-language journal designed to:

  • Develop new insights into workplace innovation.
  • Provide case studies from Europe as well as comparative studies from other continents.
  • Develop and present new theories in the field of workplace innovation.
  • Become an important international publication channel for the international workplace innovation community. EJWI is not intended to just be “yet another journal”. One of our objectives is to provide a rapid publication route for case study reports from practitioners and other items which don’t fit the normal criteria for academic journal papers. Publication of the first issue, including articles from leading researchers, will coincide with EUWIN’s March 2015 Bulletin.

European Journal of Workplace Innovation

Workplace Innovation is described by the European Workplace Innovation Network (EUWIN) as the participatory and inclusive nature of innovations that embed workplace practices grounded in continued reflection, learning and improvements in the way in which organisations manage their employees, organise work and deploy technologies. It builds bridges between the strategic knowledge of the leadership, the professional and tacit knowledge of frontline employees, and the design knowledge of experts.

It seeks to engage all stakeholders in dialogue in which the force of the better argument prevails. Workplace Innovation manifests itself in empowering job design, self-organised team working, continuous improvement groups, high involvement practices and representative partnership structures whose concerns transcend traditional industrial relations, and the encouragement of entrepreneurial behaviour at all levels of the organization.

Workplace Innovation is inherently social because it derives from interaction between different stakeholders both within and outside the organisation. It is directed at the simultaneous improvement of organisational performance and quality of working life.

The European Journal of Workplace Innovation is published by University of Agder, Norway, within their set of online journals. http://journal.uia.no/. The plan is to publish two issues a year. First issue is expected in April 2014. The journal will welcome articles that collect short cases from as many member countries as possible it will also be encouraging reviews of alternative perspectives on Innovation, including the recognition that Workplace Innovation incorporates diverse perspectives and debates.
