 Innovation Research Interchange Announces New Editor-in-Chief for Research Technology Management
Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Manufacturers’ Innovation Research Interchange announced today that Yat Ming Ooi would serve as the next editor-in-chief at Research-Technology Management.
“I was particularly drawn to RTM because of its commitment to publishing academic but
practitioner-focused articles,” said Ooi. “There are not many well-known R&D or technology management journals in this niche, and fewer that focus on both views of the field. It is my goal to keep RTM in its current niche to appeal to academics and practitioners as contributors and readers of the journal.”
RTM is the flagship journal of the Innovation Research Interchange. Now in its 67th year of publication, RTM publishes articles for practitioners and academics working in innovation, R&D and technology management.
“We have high hopes for Yat Ming Ooi’s leadership at RTM,” Jim Euchner. “RTM plays a significant role in IRI’s efforts in helping companies drive innovation and develop the cutting-edge technologies that keep manufacturing strong. His vision will shape RTM as it reaches its seventh decade of publication, and it will help us continue providing the highest quality of content for the industry.”
Background: Ooi is a current board of editors member at Research-Technology Management and editorial review board member at Technology Innovation Management Review, where he reviews submissions to the journal, providing direct, constructive and developmental feedback to the authors. He is a lecturer of innovation management and a core member of the Circular Economy in Business Research Beacon at the University of Auckland, where he researches, teaches and consults on innovation management, technology strategy and digital transformation.
