Academy of Management Learning & Education (AMLE) journal publishes a wide range of materials devoted to management education in colleges and universities, and all organizations that formally foster learning about management in four content areas: research and reviews, essays and dialogues, book and research reviews, and exemplary contributions. AMLE is not a teaching-practice journal that publishes descriptive work, rather, it is a scholarly journal that publishes rigorous logical and empirical analyses of courses, curricula, programs, and other practices within business schools that contribute to theoretical debate.
Authors are encouraged to explore ideas for essay manuscripts with the section editor:Bill Harley, Associate Editor
Before developing a dialogue manuscript, prospective authors must consult with the Editor to ensure that their topic and approach is consistent with AMLE's mission and audience:Dirk Lindebaum, Editor

Readers interested in writing reviews and those who have suggestions of materials for review should:
The objective of the Books and Resource Review (B&RR) section of AMLE is to provide our readers with insightful and informative reviews of a diverse array of resources. Remember that we aim to publish thoughtful critiques of resources, not simply summaries of those works. Reviews should also establish a clear link with ongoing debates within AMLE, and serve as an inspiration for further theoretical/empirical work that can improve practice.
We define the term “resources” broadly – such that we are interested in reviews of not only books but a range of resources relevant to MLE in the 21st century--software, hardware, websites, podcasts, technology, training programs, experiential exercises, simulations, and other tools that may assist management educators and practitioners in developing their knowledge, skills, and awareness are all potential resources for review. We also welcome proposals for resource review collections (a set of separate but related reviews on resources on a similar topic). Additionally, the current editorial board has made a strategic decision to include reviews of resources drawn from outside of the MLE domain for as long as the relevance for MLE is made very clear. As a result, we are particularly interested in reviews of applicable resources drawn from across other disciplines (e.g., Computer Sciences, Engineering, Education, Journalism, Humanities, Law, Medicine & Health Sciences, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences).
Although the editors will initiate the review of both popular and classic media, we encourage editorial board members, and indeed Academy of Management members, to recommend specific reviews that AMLE should undertake. It should be stressed that AMLE will strive to address the range of interests represented by all divisions and interest groups of the Academy. In addition, we will strive to represent alternative, unique, and emerging viewpoints from across the disciplines and around the globe, both in the selection of resources and the selection of reviewers.
What follows is a recommended format for the reviews. We encourage you to follow this but also to consider whether an alternative approach might be appropriate given the nature of the resource, and the nature of the review undertaken. If an alternative approach is preferred, please contact the B&RR section editor, Laura Colombo, at L.A.Colombo2@exeter.ac.uk, before beginning the review, using the phrase AMLE Book and Resource Reviews in the subject line. All reviews should be submitted to AMLE using the Manuscript Central portal.

(Title) The Great American Novel about Management
By Jane R. Doe and John M. Doe. New York, NY: Universal Publishers, 2001. 545 pages, hard cover.
Reviewed by J. B. Arbaugh, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, (email address here).
The editor will screen all manuscripts submitted to the Research and Reviews, Essays, and Dialogues sections. In some cases, a manuscript may be returned without peer review if it is judged to be inappropriate for publication in AMLE. Manuscripts that are deficient in grammar, spelling, and punctuation also may be returned without review.
Manuscripts judged to be consistent with the mission and standards of AMLE will be submitted for double-blind review to at least two referees as dictated by content. At least one referee is usually an Editorial Board member. Submitting authors can expect to receive first-round feedback via email in approximately 75 days, moderated by the editor or an associate editor.
Manuscripts will be evaluated by referees on the following criteria (criteria will be selectively applied, based on the nature and type of the manuscript):
Authors are encouraged to solicit feedback from colleagues on early drafts. A manuscript can be improved dramatically when knowledgeable reviewers are asked for reactions in advance of submission. Manuscripts are considered with the understanding that their contents have not been published and are not under consideration elsewhere. Presentation of a paper at a professional meeting does not disqualify it from consideration.
Submission of a manuscript to AMLE also carries an implicit quid pro quo: willingness to review for AMLE. The cornerstone of the editorial process at AMLE is the willingness of colleagues to provide each other feedback through peer review. Authors who submit manuscripts to AMLE for review are expected to reciprocate by reviewing for AMLE if called upon to do so.
