Newly announced journal: International Journal of Technological Learning, Innovation and Development

International Journal of Technological Learning, Innovation and Development - to begin publication in 2008 - will be a multi-disciplinary journal devoted to the study of the nature of technological innovation processes, at the level of firms, industries/clusters, and countries, the various influences on such processes as well as their implications for industrial growth, techno-economic and social development in the context of contemporary late-industrialising countries.
Innovation will be studied from a comprehensive perspective to encompass imitation, assimilation, experimentation, continuous improvement and research-based activities on the basis of their technical, organisational, managerial and institutional dimensions. This broad approach to the study of innovation will help uncover the dynamics and intricacies of the processes of accumulation and sustainability of innovative capabilities in developing countries. The themes will be explored within a broad spectrum of economic activities including sectors such as manufacturing, agriculture and a wide range of service activities, from health care systems to banking and their varied intersections.

I congratulate the editors and publishers for your endeavour to bring out The "International Journal of Technological Learning, Innovation and Development" I am sure this proposed will be a great addition to the gamut of Technical Journals, because of the Thematic importance of 'Innovation', of academics and of the new need of optimising the world (in the deficit resource and plethoric environmental degradation). The only thing which can halt the decay is technological maturity, beyond process or product friendliness.
I sure would like to contribute my thoughts.
