Innovations is the only academic journal of its kind. The most widely read academic journals dealing with the interaction of technology and governance take a 30,000-foot view of both policy challenges and proposed policy solutions. Rarely do academic analyses of global policy challenges begin by looking at innovations. Rarely do practitioner-focused narratives seriously address innovations in their global context. Innovations does both.
The audience for Innovations is a broad community of change agents. The content in Innovations brings together accounts (narratives), accounting (indicators), and accountability (governance). Innovations will be of interest to public servants whose method is entrepreneurial, and entrepreneurs whose projects have a public conscience; innovators interested in analysis, and scholars interested in innovations.
Each issue of Innovations analyzes best local practices in a global context. Innovations is based on two simple premises. The first: while culture and economics do create significant differences among populations, creativity is a characteristic shared by people everywhere. The second: while many pressing societal challenges are global, their solutions are local. Innovations in one place can inform and inspire innovations elsewhere.
