The papers from all the IMP conference proceedings from 1984-1999 have been digitized and are freely and uniquely available through this IMP Electronic Archive, providing instant electronic access to this major research resource hitherto only available in print format to visitors to the Eddie Davies Library. This complements the later conferences and the further resources available from the IMP group website www.impgroup.org.

"The first IMP conference was held at UMIST in September 1984 and to date (September 2011) there have been 27 conferences. Hence, the papers constitute a valuable resource for business-to-business researchers providing insight into the development of a rich and varied international research stream."
Professor Judy Zolkiewski, Senior lecturer in Business-to-Business Marketing and Director Manchester IMP Research Group
"Working in collaboration with Manchester IMP Research Group and the e-Scholar team from the John Rylands University Library we have recently digitised this important research collection. This has been successfully imported into Manchester eScholar, which now enables this specialist collection to be made available to researchers and practitioners from all across the world."
