Special Issue of Technological Forecasting and Social Change

"General Morphological Analysis: Modelling, Forecasting, Innovation"

Guest Editors: Tom Ritchey & Tomasz Arciszewski

We are happy to announce the Special Issue of Technological Forecasting and Social Change featuring General Morphological Analysis (GMA). The articles appearing in this issue are based both on papers presented at The Second International Symposium on General Morphological Analysis (ISGMA 2016), held in Bilbao 11-12 June, and on additional contributions provided by selected GMA practitioners. The articles for the Special Issue are now in press and will be available on-line shortly. The "hard copy" version will be available in January 2018.
