Our publications are committed to advancing theory, research, education, and practice in the field of management.
Journals & Publications:

The Academy of Management (AOM) is committed to advancing our understanding about theory, empirical results, education, and practice in the field of management. AOM publishes six journals, each of which broadly contributes to this objective while emphasizing particular scholarly aspects. Academy of Management Review (AMR) provides a forum to explicate theoretical insights and developments. Academy of Management Journal (AMJ) publishes empirical articles that advance theory-based knowledge. Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD) publishes exploratory empirical research of management and organizational phenomena that theories do not adequately explain. Academy of Management Annals (Annals) features critical and provocative reviews of the evidence emerging from management research. Academy of Management Learning and Education (AMLE) provides a forum to examine learning processes and management education. Academy of Management Perspectives (AMP) publishes accessible articles about important issues concerning management and business. Additional details about each journal's scholarly domain are included in the respective mission statements.

In addition to our journals, AOM publishes a newsletter, and our annual meeting Best Papers Proceedings, both of which are available in electronic format.

HiresAMDcoverBorder The mission of AMD is to publish phenomenon-driven empirical research that theories of management and organizations neither adequately predict nor explain. Data on these poorly-understood phenomena can come from any source, including ethnographic observations, lab and field experiments, field surveys, meta-analyses, construct validation research, and replication studies. AMD welcomes exploratory research at the pre-theory stage of knowledge development, where it is premature to specify hypotheses, and which generates surprising findings likely to stimulate and guide further exploration and analysis. This research must be grounded in rigorous state-of-the-art methods, present strong and persuasive evidence, and offer interesting and important implications for management theory and practice.
AMD is published quarterly in March, June, September, and December.

HiresAMJcoverborder The mission of AMJ is to publish empirical research that tests, extends, or builds management theory and contributes to management practice. All empirical methods including, but not limited to, qualitative, quantitative, field, laboratory, meta-analytic, and mixed methods are welcome. To be published in AMJ, the research must make strong empirical and theoretical contributions and the manuscript should highlight the relevance of those contributions to management practice. Authors should strive to produce original, insightful, interesting, important, and theoretically bold research that demonstrates a significant "value-added" contribution to the field's understanding of an issue or topic.
AMJ is published six times a year in February, April, June, August, October, and December.

The mission of 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.
AMR is published quarterly in January, April, July, and October.

AMLE's mission is to contribute to management learning and education by publishing theory, empirical research, reviews, critiques, and resources that address the processes of management teaching and the learning that results from it. Additionally, AMLE publishes work that addresses important issues in the institutional environment and administration of business schools and their stakeholders. The journal's emphasis is on the study of management learning and education in all types of settings—schools and universities as well as businesses and public and non-profit organizations.
AMLE is published quarterly in March, June, September, and December.

The Academy of Management Perspectives (AMP) publishes articles and symposia that address important issues concerning management and business. AMP articles and symposia are aimed at the non-specialist academic reader with a secondary audience that include existing and future "thought leaders." A distinctive aspect of AMP articles is a focus on evidence rather than the development of theory.
AMP is published quarterly in February, May, August, and November.

The mission of Annals is to publish up-to-date, in-depth and integrative reviews of research advances in management. Often called "reviews with an attitude," Annals papers summarize and/or challenge established assumptions and concepts, pinpoint problems and factual errors, inspire discussions, and illuminate possible avenues for further study. Reviews published in Annals move above and beyond descriptions of the field – they motivate conceptual integration and set agendas for future research.
Annals is published twice a year.
