Published quarterly in March, June, September, and December
The mission of Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD) is to be the premier journal of empirical exploratory research in the areas of management and organizations.
What distinguishes AMD is that we publish …
… articles motivated by research questions that address compelling and underexplored phenomena, novel or unusual contexts, and that reveal empirical patterns that cannot be explained by existing theory;
… articles written with a different, more inquisitive voice and that include an open discussion of the research journey;
… articles that present clear and compelling discoveries: empirical findings that challenge existing assumptions while opening new theoretical paths or that otherwise promote future, “down-the-road,” theorizing;
and we do not publish…
… articles that test hypotheses or are deductively framed in their empiricism;
… articles that are motivated solely by theoretical argument rather than by exploration of phenomenon or context.
Articles at AMD employ rigorous state-of-the-art methods and display strong and persuasive evidence. We present these empirical discoveries in innovative and accessible ways.

AMD is committed to running multiple paper-development workshops each year. Prior to each workshop, interested participants will be able to submit an extended abstract for possible acceptance in the workshop. If accepted, attendees should expect a mixture of the following activities:
Each virtual workshop lasts 3 hours and are scheduled to accommodate as many time zones as possible.
