Our journal – International Journal of Innovation and Knowledge Management in Middle East and North Africa (IJIKMMENA) is the first international, multidisciplinary, refereed journal to provide a forum for academics, practitioners and policymakers to exchange concepts, research, and best practices about innovation and knowledge management in the MENA region. The journal aims to integrate the study of these various disciplines to achieve sustainable development in MENA and help to stimulate debate amongst scholars, researchers and policymakers within and outside the MENA region with a view to defining common, effective responses to tomorrow’s challenges.
