Article Submission Guidelines

The Academy of Management receives article submissions to six journals:

Each journal is different in domain and mission. All are considered “big tent” journals and encompass a broad range of topics. Therefore, it is recommended that potential authors visit each journal on this Web site to determine the best fit for their research (instead of emailing an abstract or manuscript in advance to the AOM Publications Department). We also strongly recommend visiting the Information for Contributors and the Style Guide for Authors documents for each journal above.

In summary, articles that make strong empirical and theoretical contributions should be submitted to Academy of Management Journal. Conceptual articles that present new theory but do not contain new evidence should be submitted to Academy of Management Review. Articles that synthesize and translate theoretical and empirical research in management’s distinct subfields in a manner that makes them accessible for scholars outside that subfield should be submitted to Academy of Management Perspectives. Articles that advance the knowledge and practice of management learning and education should be submitted to Academy of Management Learning & Education. Articles in Academy of Management Discoveries focus on reporting novel findings or unusual empirical patterns in their particular contexts that are not adequately explained by current theory and/or can play a critical role in the development and testing of new theory. Academy of Management Annals articles summarize and/or challenge established assumptions and concepts, pinpoint problems, inspire discussions, and illuminate areas for further study.

 Use the links in the paragraph above to submit original articles to the journal-specific ScholarOne site. 

When submitting a manuscript file, Word documents should be free of any author-identifying information, such as name, contact information/affiliation, and acknowledgments. We ask this of authors because including such information compromises the double-blind peer-review process.

    NOTES:
  • The Academy of Management DOES NOT charge submission fees.
  • Submissions to the Academy of Management journals are not automatically published and go through a rigorous review process that may include multiple rounds of revisions.
  • If submitting your article to Academy of Management Perspectives, please submit a short proposal and not a full text article. Proposals that do not conform to the proposal guidelines will not be considered. Please review the AMP proposal guidelines.
  • If submitting your article to Academy of Management Annals, please submit a short proposal and not a full text article. Proposals that do not conform to the proposal guidelines will not be considered. Please review the Annals proposal guidelines.
