AOM Collections

Academy of Management (AOM) is pleased to announce the appointment of James Bailey, Ph.D., as the inaugural editor of the AOM Collections content series. Professor Bailey is a distinguished AOM member and the Hochberg Professorial Fellow of Leadership Development, Professor of Management at the George Washington School of Business (GWSB), in Washington D.C.

AOM Collections are thematic groups of peer-reviewed research drawn from the AOM journal portfolio. Organized by different content channels and accompanied by an integrative summary, AOM Collections will feature the curation, distribution, and evaluation of scholarly management content. In addition, Collections will highlight scholarly findings across the original works including reflections by the authors and/or subject matter experts.

What are AOM Collections?

The primary goal of AOM Collections is to provide academic space for the creation, dissemination, and review of AOM content that spans the existing AOM journal archive.

AOM Collections are thematic groups of articles that expand upon journal material to transform how we collect and build upon management knowledge.

AOM Collections increase the scope of collection content to include:

  • Open calls for Collections
  • Collections highlighted through AOM Divisions
  • Editorially guided Invited Collections [from key subject matter experts]

Collections are developed and peer reviewed by the Collections Editor and the respective editorial team of volunteers.

What is the value of AOM Collections?

AOM Collections are organized into specific areas of management research to highlight and expand upon existing content.

Collections provide AOM scholars with the opportunity to broaden the dissemination and outreach of their work beyond the AOM traditional journal channels.

Collections will highlight the original scholarly work while building upon the AOM Insights content value to the practitioner market.

AOM Collections will expand the scope of archived content to bring research ”back into the fold".
