Purpose and Agenda

AMLE is rated as 4* in the UK CABS list and A* in the Australian Business Deans’ Council list of journals. The journal’s main emphasis is on theoretical debates about management learning and education in all types of settings – schools and universities as well as businesses and public and non-profit organizations. Additionally, AMLE publishes work that addresses critical theoretical debates about “the business of business schools,”including the careers of management educators.

This workshop has two main parts. Part 1 comprises a general introduction to AMLE, touching on its overlaps with other key journals in the field. The main focus is on writing manuscripts for the research article and essay sections of the journal. This first part of the workshop is open to all interested participants. Part 2 is focused on supporting and advising researchers, with current work-in-progress, how to develop and refine their papers with submission to AMLE in mind.
