Facility Management Journal

FMJ is IFMA's flagship magazine. Produced six times a year, it includes in-depth articles covering best practices on a range of trending FM topics. IFMA members receive the interactive digital magazine via email and can access issues and archives online. FMJ is also available in print on an annual subscription basis (US$42 for IFMA members; US$75 for nonmembers).




Blog FMJ

This blog offers concise topical write-ups that complement articles and themes in the full edition of FMJ. Open to both members and nonmembers, Blog FMJ gives insight into the magazine in a less formal setting, and post comments are allowed and encouraged. 








The WIRE e-newsletter

Emailed every other Thursday, The WIRE keeps IFMA members in-the-know about the latest updates from the association. The WIRE's digest-style format offers a glimpse into what's on the horizon for IFMA (upcoming events, new educational opportunities and association developments), and issues are archived online for member-only access. 





IFMA Insider e-newsbrief

Delivered to IFMA's full membership each Friday, the IFMA Insider e-newsbrief delivers the week's hottest FM news and business trends from global news and top industry resources around the Web. In addition to the global IFMA Insider, IFMA publishes four regionally focused newsbriefs combining local news articles and chapter events as well as a leadership component specific to IFMA members in Canada and the U.S. Northeast, Southern and West Coast regions.



Research reports

As one of the association's strategic competencies, IFMA is dedicated to the ongoing accumulation and analysis of data related to trends in the facility management industry. From industry surveys to forecasting to benchmarking reports, IFMA's research draws on the practices and opinions of FM professionals and educators, covering topics vital to the day-to-day operations of facility professionals and the built environment. Research reports are available for purchase via the IFMA store (IFMA members receive discounted pricing).


How-to guides

IFMA and the IFMA Foundation, with support from IFMA’s Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability Strategic Advisory Group, produce a series of white papers to provide data and information associated with a wide range of subjects related to sustainable facility management. Summaries of the available guides are listed on the IFMA website, and users can log in to access full downloads for free. 




White papers

In addition to more formal research reports, IFMA produces white papers in conjunction with industry thought leaders on emerging trends within the FM industry. White paper executive summaries are listed on the Knowledge Base area of IFMA's website, and full reports are available for download (members receive for free or at discounted rates).





IFMA also sells books written for the association and by other FM experts through the IFMA bookstore.
