Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Space Technology Management and Innovation (IJSTMI) is to provide a forum to discuss the benefits of space technology for society, national economies, and industries and to investigate industrialization (commercialization) of space technologies, resulting in the development of new markets and applications (i.e. navigation, space tourism, solar power satellites etc.). This journal addresses space agencies management programs, space economics and technology innovation developments, and the impact of new space programs on employment and economic growth (i.e. direct benefits, etc.). IJSTMI examines the impact (i.e. space budgets reductions, etc.) of the global financial crisis on the space industry and space agencies’ space exploration programs.
