PRODUCT (online ISSN 2237-5228) is an international, open-access, online-only scientific journal, published since 2002 on behalf of the Instituto de Inovação e Gestão de Desenvolvimento de Produto (IGDP), with original articles in English under the Creative Commons CC-BY license and collected biannually following a volume, issue and year model. PRODUCT is dedicated to the dissemination of original, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary research on innovation.
The broad scope of the innovation concept is what sets it apart. The journal accepts research with different levels of analysis to promote the relationship between theories. It publishes research in the macro-level sphere, such as innovation environment, national and regional policies, ecosystems, networks and organizations; further, it considers research in the micro-level, involving various aspects of users and consumers, agents (teams, designers, and engineers), intellectual property, technology, and products. It particularly focuses on issues that bridge the gap between theories generated at different levels of study, thus creating a space for interaction between macro and micro-level researchers in innovation.
The journal encourages contributions from various areas of knowledge that exist in the field of innovation, such as the following: Technology Management; Project Management; Entrepreneurship, Creativity; Engineering Design; Design; Systems Engineering; Knowledge management; Ergonomics; Systems Engineering. Manuscripts from all these areas of knowledge are welcome. In addition, other fields on Technology, Sciences, Engineering, Business, Administration, and Economics will be well received if connected with innovation.
