The International Journal of Systematic Innovation


Purposes of the Journal  


The aims of the journal are to publish high-quality scholarly papers with academic rigor in theoretical and practical studies in order to enhance human knowledge/skills in and promote beneficial applications of Systematic Innovation.


Brief outline of the proposed scope


"Systematic Innovation" is a set of knowledge/tools/methods which can enable systematic development of innovative problem solving, strategy setting, and/or identification of product/process/service innovation opportunities. IJoSI is a doubly blinded peer review, open access online journal with lag prints which publishes original research articles, reviews, and case studies in the field of Innovation Methods emphasizing on Systematic Innovation. This international journal is dedicated to the field of Innovation Methods.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

I)      Strategic & Business Aspects of Innovation Methods:

1.1   Systematic identification of opportunities and issues in Business Model/ Product/ Process/ Service Innovation.)

1.2   Systematic innovation Strategies, Methods, or Tools for Business Model/ Product/ Process/ Service improvements.

1.3   Systematic identification or exploitation of Trends for Business or Technology innovation.

II)     Technical Aspects of Innovation Methods:

2.1   TRIZ-based systematic innovation:

        2.1.1        Research and Development of TRIZ-based theories and tools.

        2.1.2        TRIZ-based opportunity identification and problem solving applications.

        2.1.3        Theories, applications, and techniques in TRIZ-based education/teaching.

2.2   Non-TRIZ based systematic Innovation:

        2.2.1        Nature or bio-inspired methods/tools for Systematic Innovation.

        2.2.2        Theories, tools, or applications of systematic innovative opportunity identification or problem solving such as: Lateral Thinking, Vertical Thinking, 6 Thinking Hats, etc.

2.3   Random Innovation Methods/Processes

2.4   Theories/Knowledge/Tools which is integrated with or related to Systematic Innovation such as: IP/Patent Management or Techniques, Neural Linguistic Programming, Axiomatic Design, VA/VE, Lean, 6 Sigma, QFD, etc.

III)    Integration of Innovation Methods with Artificial Intelligence(AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Design/Manufacturing/Services, or Computer-Aided Innovation (CAI)

3.1   Theories or applications of innovative methods in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Design/Manufacturing/Services.

3.2   Intelligent or computational systems supporting innovation or creative reasoning

3.3   Development of theories/methods/tools for Computer-aided Innovation.

        a.     Knowledge Management, Text/Web Mining systems supporting innovation processes.

        b.     Forecasting or Road mapping issues for CAI.

IV)   Other tools, theories, and applications related to or can be integrated with innovation methods.

4.1   Education/Training aspects of innovation methods

4.2   Application of other tools, theories related to or can be integrated with innovation methods.
