Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The pharmaceutical industry plays a significant role in the research, development, production, and distribution of medications to reduce the incidence of diseases, to treat diseases and enhance the quality of life of people. The industry is expected not only to contribute to technological advancements through cutting-edge research but also to ensure lasting innovations complying with laws, regulations, and industry standards to meet the healthcare demands of populations. Sustainable growth and development of the pharmaceutical industry and related ecosystems are becoming global agendas and include complex and wide-ranging issues and goals for the strategic and economic success. Management of technology and innovation is one of the ways for achievement of growth and development of the industry and for resolution of conflicts amongst different goals and stakeholders. However, our expertise in management of technology and innovation is still at a nascent stage to meet expectations and to realize further growth and development of the industry.

This Special Issue covers a wide range of topics on management of technology and innovation toward the challenges and opportunities for growth and development of the pharmaceutical industry. It will include but is not limited to:

  • Conceptual propositions on management of technology and innovation in the pharmaceutical industry;
  • Systematic reviews on management of technology and innovation in the pharmaceutical industry;
  • Methodology for the analysis, design, and implementation of innovative technology, products/services, and systems to realize growth and development of the pharmaceutical industry;
  • Practices and case studies on management of technology and innovation for growth and development of the pharmaceutical industry.

We invite papers that comprehensively examine the current status based on credible analysis and evidence and also provide potential solutions with salient ideas and future perspectives with profound insights and normative perspectives. We appreciate papers dealing with specific topics from interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches. We also welcome papers with both qualitative and quantitative approaches. We expect that this Special Issue will serve as a forum for anyone with an interest in and passion toward the realization of growth and development of the pharmaceutical industry through technology and innovation
