«The aim of the journal "Verbands-Management" ist to make scientific insights accessible to practice and to promote the exchange of ideas between scholars and practitioners.»
Prof. em. Dr. Robert Purtschert, former director of the VMI
The journal for association management (VM) which has been published three times per year since 1976 offers current articles focussing on both science and practice. The concept of our journal is based on three pillars:
- Emphasis on NPO management: The topical emphasis of VM lies on the management of NPOs. Hence, articles on new management instruments and techniques as well as examples of use from practitioners are published.
- A part of the Third Sector: Our journal is committed to the Third Sector. Academic articles report relevant developments and research insights from the NPO sector.
Timeliness and practical relevance: Current develpoments in the Swiss, German or Austrian NPO sectors are commented on and discussed by qualified authors in VM. In the process, practical relevance is of prime importance.
Our journal is an exclusive service for our supporters as well as for the participants of our further education courses. Should you be interested in subscribing to our journal, we kindly refer you to our documentation for supporters. Individual copies of VM can be purchase at the VMI.
We look forward to welcoming you soon among our readers.
