To have a research work published in an Academy of Management (AOM) journal is beneficial to both the researcher and their affiliated institution. It is through publication that the research, including its scientific and practical contributions, is disseminated to others within the management field. Publishing within the AOM portfolio makes researchers with similar interests aware of new knowledge in their field and helps to advance that knowledge and its application. Publishing also exhibits expertise in the management field and an ability to conduct grounded research. The published AOM work also reflects highly on the academic institution(s) affiliated with the author(s).
The Academy of Management receives article submissions to our seven journals. Each journal
is different in domain and mission. All are considered “big tent” journals and encompass a broad range of topics. Therefore, it is recommended that potential authors visit each journal page to determine the best fit for their research. Reviewing the Information for Contributors and the Style Guide for Authors documents for each journal is also strongly recommended.

Process for new users:
All AOM journals have detailed workflows ensuring submissions go through numerous checks to substantiate they meet AOM ethical and procedural guidelines throughout the submission and acceptance timeline. Each AOM journal has its own specific set of submission guidelines, codes of conduct policies and article formatting templates, which must be strictly adhered to throughout the publishing process.
If a submitted article is accepted for review, the journal editorial team will initiate the peer reviewer process. Designated reviewers, chosen from a pool of subject specific volunteers, will each advise the editor to either recommend to approve the article, send it back for revision, or reject it. If revisions are recommended, the process continues until a final decision can be made on whether or not to publish the article within the individual AOM journal.
Through these policies, procedures, and editorial mechanisms, AOM enables the advancement of management research to align with our mission and vision, providing top ranked vehicles for our content and an invaluable resource for our global authors.
Please review AOM's Style Guide for manuscript requirements prior to submitting.
The Academy of Management journal editors explain the foundational philosophy of knowledge creation and dissemination, as well as details about the AOM journals and the differences among them. The editors discuss common questions of interest to authors,
outlining not only what is central to each journal but also the characteristics of typical papers that appear in the publications.
