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.

A Tribute to Don Conlon

Don Conlon was one of a kind! He was wickedly smart and curious about ideas making him a perfect fit for the AMR Editorial Team. But he added so much more than expertise. He was a joyful and optimistic person who transmitted his love for life every time we met. Don loved getting to know everyone, and he had an uncanny ability of making everyone feel special and heard. This editorial team, and the field, has lost someone incredibly special—a star who most loved shining his light on others. Watch the tribute video.
