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 and what makes us distinctive. The main focus is on writing manuscripts that advance our theoretical understanding about MLE phenomena for the research and review, and essay sections of the journal. This first part of the workshop is open to all interested participants. Part 2 is focused on providing tailored feedback for potential authors on their work-in-progress to develop and refine their manuscripts for submission to AMLE. Participants wishing to receive feedback on their manuscripts should note the requirements below.

NOTE: Extended abstract or papers will be accepted in Spanish and Portuguese for this workshop. Spanish and Portuguese-speaking coordinators will be on hand during the workshop to provide assistance. Submissions to AMLE remain only in English.
