After I read the paper
Crawford, Lynn; Pollack, Julien; England, David: How Standards are Standards – An Examination of Language Emphasis in Project Management Standards; in: Journal of Project Management, Vol. 38 (2007), No. 3, pp. 6-21.

I thought about visualising the different foci of the European International Journal of Project Management and the American Journal of Project Management [besides the more than obvious ‚International‘ in the title].

I compiled a list of all keywords which have been submitted by authors between 2003 and 2008. Afterwards I ran this list through the CloudTag Generator at tagcrowd.com which I set to generate 100 Meta-Keywords. This is the result for the International Journal of Project Management:

IJPM Keywords 2003-2008 (100 Tags)

And this is the result for the Journal of Project Management:

JPM 100 Tags Cloud of all Keywords 2003-2008

It’s quite interesting to spot the differences, the easiest difference to make out are the mentions of construction projects. However this also nicely shows the JPM’s focus on ‚Best Practice Research‘.
