The new additions bring the total in the PM World Collection to 757 original works by 413 different authors from 54 different countries. The collection is growing each month by approximately 30-40 new works by many different authors. Of the 41 authors in April, 15 authors were new to both the PMWJ and PMWL. All works in the PMWL can be accessed at http://pmworldlibrary.net/
According to PMWL Director David Pells (pictured), who is also the managing editor of the PMWJ, “We are excited to be adding so much new content to the library each month. The number of authors is also increasing rapidly, partially due to more papers having multiple authors which is common for academic papers. The upshot is that we are attracting more research papers by scholars, which is significant.”
“The PM World Library is being upgraded as we speak,” Pells adds. “For example, now we are adding all breaking news articles that have been posted in the PMWJ since July 2012, approximately 850 stories. These will all soon be available in the BN Archives page in the P/PM news section of the library.”
New authors in March include Mauricio Lopes (Brazil); Monica Gutierrez (Colombia); Richard Amponsah and Bernardine Gatete (Ghana); Ogun Ohgenekevwe, Ogunsina Olusola and Ugochukwu Stanley Chukwudi (Nigeria); Krystyna Linkowska (Poland); and Karen Kostelnik, Ralph Mauelshagen, Diane Johnson Morris, Francisco Ortiz, Mary Jane Quandt, Dr. Richa Uppal and Paula Wenger (USA). New works from 26 authors already included in the library were also added.
The PM World Library (PMWL) is a global resource for continuous learning in portfolio, program and project management (P/PM).
