AMP we seek to publish articles that raise debates and increase the discussion
in the Academy. Consistent with this view, there are four basic types of
articles we seek, which are in the areas of (1) controversial debate, (2) evidence based research, (3) research summaries and setting of future
direction, and (4) forward looking theorizing. Please click on the link next to
each category for examples of recently published article(s).
1. Controversial debate
(view articles from the February 2009, Volume 23 Issue 1 :Has Goal Setting Gone Wild, or Have Its Attackers Abandoned Good
Scholarship? by Edwin A. Locke and
Gary P. Latham; and On Good Scholarship, Goal Setting, and Scholars Gone Wild by Lisa D. Ordonez, Maurice E. Schweitzer, Adam
D. Galinsky, and Max H. Bazerman)
2. Evidence Based work
(view article from November 2009, Volume 23, Issue 4: European M&A Industry: A Market in the Process of
Construction by Caterina Moschieri
and Jose Manuel Campa)
3. Research summaries &
setting of future direction (view articles: Managing Strategic Alliances by Prashant Kale and Harbir Singh, August 2009,
Volume 23, Issue 3; and Managing Joint Ventures by Paul Beamish and Nathaniel C. Lupton, May 2009, Volume 23, Issue
4. Forward looking
theorizing (view articles from May 2009: Is the Socially Responsible Corporation a Myth? by
Timothy M. Devinney, and Complementarity
in Monitoring and Bonding by Robert E. Hoskisson, Mark Castleton, and Michael C. Withers)
is worth noting that, as we discuss these articles we do not
overlap with other Academy journals. Thus, empirical articles driven
principally by theory should go to AMJ. The development of new theory should go
to AMR. Potential authors should also note that AMP articles are aimed at the
non-specialist academic reader, not practicing managers. All articles are
fundamentally based on research evidence, which can be quantitative or
qualitative, but not on opinion. AMP is open to the wide range of topics
represented within the Academy of Management, although special attention will
be given to manuscripts with broad appeal to the "thought leader"
audience. As a result, manuscripts that focus on issues that are of interest
mainly to practicing managers will be a low priority.
