The first year in the life of AMD has been an exciting and challenging year of discovery and innovation.  In terms of content, we are positioning AMD's mission as being unique to all AOM journals. AMD is driven to discover interesting and important managerial phenomena that are poorly understood. In terms of media, AMD is pioneering scientific electronic publishing with the following innovations that are now available: digital whiteboards, editor's comments, embedded video and author interviews, and AMD paper commentaries.  We're on a roll! Come join us!

The Mission of AMD

The mission of the Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD) is to promote exploratory empirical research of management and organizational phenomena that our theories do not adequately explain.  AMD welcomes studies at the pre-theory stage of knowledge development, where it is premature to specify hypotheses, as well as discoveries from meta-analytic, replication, and construct validity research. This research must be grounded in rigorous state-of-the-art methods, present strong and persuasive evidence, and offer interesting and important implications for management theory and practice.

AMD is published four times a year in March, June, September, and December.
