Springer launches Journal of the Knowledge Economy

December 02, 2009

Springer is founding the Journal of the Knowledge Economy, a new quarterly publication sponsored by the Norwegian Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education (NIFU STEP). The journal was developed under the leadership of founding Editor-in-Chief Professor Elias G. Carayannis of George Washington University in collaboration with Aris Kaloudis, a Senior Researcher at NIFU STEP. Debuting in March 2010, the journal will promote a global, multidisciplinary approach, focusing on the social, technological and economic aspects of knowledge and innovation.

The Journal of the Knowledge Economy is the first journal devoted to the knowledge-based economy, highlighting the role of knowledge creation, diffusion and application across the spectrum of organizations, industries, nations and regions. The journal will incorporate insights from the fields of economics, management, law, sociology, anthropology, psychology and political science to shed new light on the evolving role of knowledge and its economic implications. Articles will emphasize empirical studies, balancing practice and application with theory and concepts.

Professor Carayannis said, "In the context of rapid globalization and technological capacity, the world's economies today are driven increasingly by knowledge--the expertise, experience, education and awareness required to communicate, interpret and analyze information. The Journal of the Knowledge Economy will study and highlight how innovation can be leveraged to provide solutions to complex problems and issues, including global crises in environmental sustainability and economic development."

Nicholas Philipson, Senior Editor of Business and Economics at Springer, said, "We are delighted to partner with NIFU STEP, Professor Carayannis, and an international community of academic scholars, policy makers, and expert practitioners. Our collaboration reflects the concepts and principles behind the journal. The Journal of the Knowledge Economy will promote the theme of how universities, businesses, and governments can work together to channel knowledge into economic growth and opportunity."
