About the Journal

The CERN IdeaSquare Journal of Experimental Innovation (CIJ) is targeted at communicating thought-provoking, contemporary, and latest findings in experimentation-driven innovation research.

CIJ is an interdisciplinary, open on-line journal that publishes both empirical and theoretical research that aims to push the boundaries of a variety of topics around in-situ experimental innovation. CIJ encourages research that is between and even beyond disciplinary lines, and welcomes research advancing innovation process methodologies, tools, educational approaches, knowledge exchange, management, and policy. The intent of CIJ is to be intellectually challenging in the name of true scientific curiosity and to cultivate evidence-based, novel insights to advance understanding on how new knowledge and basic research turn into use for society through innovation.
