Editorial by RNI, May 2016

20 years of INNOVATIONS

The journal Innovations (Cahiers d’Economie de l’Innovation) was founded in 1995 and published by L’Harmattan (Paris). Since its launch, Innovations has been primarily a place of debate on economy and society evolutions and transformations enabling to compare theoretical reflections to practical experiences. Technological, conceptual, entrepreneurial, economic and social innovations…

The pluralistic approaches and methods are revealed and cemented by the systematic recourse of the authors to the history of economic thought and facts.

The observation is the following: the authors of Innovations are interested in the birth of innovation that results from strong interactions between companies, universities, public institutions and consumers. The powerful innovation networks, at local, national and international levels, create knowledge and transform it into technological, organizational and commercial innovations.

The authors discuss the innovation strategies of firms and study the impact of innovation on organizations and on society in general. They also emphasize the innovative entrepreneur and skilled labor that are considered by public policy, in the knowledge economy, as the most valuable resources of economic dynamics.

They also develop the management tools needed to understand innovation at the operational and strategic levels. The interdisciplinary and multifunctional approach give the possibility to understand technological strategies of companies and organizations as well as integrated project management methods, research and development, production, marketing and finance.

Innovations has been listed in 1999 in the Journal of Economic Literature of the American Economic Association (EconLit) and in 2000, by the index of Oswego, State University of New York and MITI in Japan.

In 2007, De Boeck (Brussels) becomes the publisher of Innovations. The journal is diffused by Cairn and the articles are present in the database IDEAS / Research Papers in Economics (RePec). The same year, the Research Network on Innovation becomes the journal’s support institution.

In 2008, launch of the English version of the journal: Journal of Innovation Economics (JIE) which is an electronic edition in free access on Cairn portal. Innovations increased its issues to 4 per year. In 2010, an additional number per year is added in French.

In 2011, Innovations enters the repertoire of the French Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) to achieve consolidation in 2014. In 2012 the journal is referenced by the French Evaluation Agency for Research and Higher education (AERES), in 2014 by the High Council of Research Evaluation and Higher Education – HCERES, in 2013 by the The French Foundation for Management Education (FNEGE). In 2015 by the European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) and Scopus.

In 2013, the editorial management of the journal is assisted by Editorial Manager. The same year, the subtitles of the journal become more precise: « Revue d’économie et de management de l’innovation » and « Journal of Innovation Economics and Management ».

The editorial committee widens and becomes international with the participation of English, Italian, German, Canadian, Australian scholars. The same year, a third issue/year in English strengthens the foundation of the journal. Innovations now counts 6 issues per year.

In 2014, a new development perspective is opened with the new editorial team (new editors and associate editors), the development of the editorial committee and the strengthening of the secretariat of the journal.

The 7th edition of Innovation Forum (from 9 to 11 June 2016 at la Cité de sciences et de l’industrie in Paris) celebrates the 20th anniversary of the journal Innovations. A trajectory and new pages to write…
