International Journal of

Quality and

Innovation

© 2013 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd


Scope of the Journal

Both 'quality' and 'innovation' play vital roles for businesses to remain competitive

in the marketplace. Broadly speaking, quality aims for high and sustainable

performance in existing business areas, while innovation aims for a breakthrough in

business areas. Both concepts are in some ways mutually dependent – an

organisation has to be innovative in solving problems to achieve quality and has to

have the quality backing to deliver a sustainable innovation. Both concepts are also

in some ways mutually paradoxical – quality appears to require conformance to a

standard whereas innovation suggests a deviation. Yet, it is in the twin pursuit of

quality and innovation that a business continues to keep ahead of its competitors.

Subject coverage:

Subjects covered include, but are not limited

to:

• The strategies and integration of quality and

innovation
