Engineering Management Journal
now available on Taylor & Francis Online

ASEM, the Engineering Management Journal, and Taylor and Francis have been working over the past few months to transition the publication of EMJ to Taylor & Francis Online (TFO).  The June 2015 issue (Volume 27, No. 2) is currently available on TFO.  ASEM members can read the articles in the June issue (as well as all archive issues of EMJ) by following the steps below:
Step 1 ASEM Member Log-in: Log into the members-only portal from the left-hand side of the ASEM homepage at
Step 2 Accessing EMJ on TFO:  After successfully logging into ASEM, within the “Engineering Management Journal” tab, click on the link at the end of the first paragraph. This will take you to the EMJ page on the TFO site.
Step 3 Creating Alerts: If you would like to be notified whenever a new EMJ issue is published on TFO, you should create an alert.  On the EMJ TFO site, click “Alert Me” on the main page to request an alert.  (Please note that you will also need to create an account on TFO in order for this preference to be saved). In the future, when you receive an alert from TFO telling you that a new issue is available, you will need to login to the ASEM portal and access the issue this way (as explained in Steps 1 and 2 above) in order to access the full text of the journal.
ASEM and the Editorial Board of EMJ welcome this transition, as it will greatly enhance the distribution, visibility, and growth of our journal, as well as provide additional key benefits for members and authors.  We hope you enjoy the June issue!
Call for Industry Volunteers for Industry Roundtable Panel
     In line with our 2015 theme, we, ASEM, have an imperative to lead the evolution of engineering management around the world.  However, ASEM cannot succeed without the collaboration of strong engineering managers and leaders across government and industry.  To this end, we have established our first annual Industry Roundtable: Overcoming Obstacles to Change in Engineering Management. 
     The roundtable consists of panel members who will share their most challenging set of issues in engineering management in an open forum, to spur a valuable discussion on overcoming obstacles, implementing best practices, sharing lessons learned, and celebrating success stories.  We would like to invite industry participants to volunteer to be a panelist in the first ASEM Industry Roundtable that will be introduced at the 2015 ASEM International Annual Conference (IAC) in Indianapolis, Indiana from October 7-10.  Strong industry participation will significantly contribute to the growth of the engineering management profession around the world.
     The ASEM annual conference spans the full range of engineering management areas, from engineering economics, supply change management, systems engineering, project management through to leadership management, technology and R&D management as well as emerging areas such as sustainability, energy and healthcare engineering management.  The conference is attended by both engineering management practitioners from industry and government organizations, as well as leading academic researchers and students. More information on the 2015 conference is available at:
     To accept our call please email your interest statement to volunteer as a panelist on the ASEM Industry Roundtable to Gene Dixon,, President ASEM.
