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.

Bridge Reviewer Program

The Academy of Management Review’s Bridge Reviewer Program is an innovative program with a goal of expanding our pool of potential reviewers. Participants of this program complete self-guided learning modules on topics such as writing highly developmental reviews, observing the ethics of reviewing, and avoiding bias while reviewing.

 After completing these learning modules, Bridge Reviewers are matched with a mentor – a member of the AMR editorial review board – who offers you an opportunity to practice reviewing a paper submitted to AMR. These seasoned and accomplished scholars then offer feedback on your review – allowing you to hone your craft of reviewing.

To sign up, please click here to fill out an application form. Then look for an email (sent within two weeks) for the learning modules. Please note you can only sign up/participate in the program once.
