Aims and Scope

Aims and Scope


Technology & Innovation, edited and published by the National Academy of Inventors®, is a multidisciplinary journal dedicated to providing a forum for innovative discourse. As a part of our mission to honor academic invention, we are pleased to feature an article from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), a profile of a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors®, and a spotlight of a Member Institution’s Chapter of the National Academy of Inventors® in every issue.

Authors should be guided by the interest of the readers who are likely to be knowledgeable non-specialist scholars. Articles deal with a wide range of topics including:

• Presenting information encompassing the entire field of applied sciences
• Fostering the inventive spirit through education and mentorship
• Creating an inclusive innovative culture
• The process of innovation and invention
• Technology transfer in an academic setting
• Environmental (including human health) impact of various technologies
