  • ANNALS News

    Academy of Management Annals: The highest impact, peer-reviewed management journal!

    Academy of Management Annals is an essential piece of the totality of the AOM portfolio of publications, and we are excited to be able to highlight the unique content which makes Annals the top journal in its field. You will see a number of changes to Annals, effective immediately, with the new edition of Annals for 2017, Volume 11. First, we have streamlined the AOM member online content experience by officially adding Annals to our internal journal content platform. Second, beginning with Volume 11, the Academy of Management will add Annals to the portfolio of our self-published titles, thus bringing to a close our relationship with Annals' previous publisher, Taylor & Francis. Third, we have also redesigned the Annals format—we have brought it into alignment with our other journals with a new cover and paperback binding. And finally, beginning with Volume 11 (2017), Annals will publish two issues per year, the first issue (Volume 11, Issue 1) in January 2017 followed by Volume 11, Issue 2 in August 2017. Stay tuned for more exciting news to come with Annals in the coming year!

    Because of its origins as an invitation-only, once-per-year hardback volume, the question often arises regarding how to count an Annals publication on one's CV. We are often asked whether the articles are book chapters or journal articles, and whether they are peer-reviewed.

    The answer is simple: Annals articles are peer-reviewed journal articles. But many schools and promotion and tenure committees are unaware of this. So spread the word!

    Why the confusion? Volumes 1-8 of Annals were not peer reviewed. Beginning with Volume 9, Annals changed its submission and review process from invited [more...]

    Dear Worldwide Academy Members:

     In response to member appeals for additional professional development and scholarly exchange opportunities, we are pleased to announce the formal launch of our AOM Specialized Conferences Initiative!   

    Our goal is simple…to provide a portfolio of conference offerings that allows members to connect and engage throughout the year, virtually and in person, in varied locations that are reflective of the geographic dispersion of our international membership.

    To reach this goal we invite you to propose an AOM face-to face or virtual conference (webinar).

    To help you imagine your proposal we’ve identified several new conference models that fulfill our mission to connect people and ideas while also advancing our vision to inspire and enable a better world through our scholarship and teaching on management and organizations. They are: face-to-face conference models including:

    ·         AOM Special Thematic Conferences
    ·         AOM Professional Development Conferences
    ·         AOM Regional Immersion Conferences
