Academy of Management Review

Published quarterly in January, April, July, and October

The mission of Academy of Management Review (AMR) is to publish theoretical insights that advance our understanding of management and organizations. Submissions to AMR must extend theory in ways that develop testable knowledge-based claims. To do this, researchers can develop new management and organization theory, significantly challenge or clarify existing theory, synthesize recent advances and ideas into fresh, if not entirely new theory, or initiate a search for new theory by identifying and delineating a novel theoretical problem. The contributions of AMR articles often are grounded in "normal science disciplines" of economics, psychology, sociology, or social psychology as well as nontraditional perspectives, such as the humanities.

Ask an AMR Associate Editor Session Series

Ask an AMR Associate Editor Series

Ask an AMR AE is a series of informal sessions with the Academy of Management Review’s (AMR) Associate Editors (AEs). Each session begins with a short presentation by one or more associate editors on a specific topic related to publishing in AMR. After the presentation, the featured AE(s) will answer participants’ questions. These sessions will help authors who are considering submitting their work to AMR and who seek guidance on navigating the publication process. AMR Associate Editors, Dana Minbaeva and Chak Fu Lam, are coordinating this series.
