The editorial team of the Journal of Management would like to invite authors to submit proposals for the 2014 Review Issue. Articles for the Review Issue tend to be high-impact scholarly surveys of important research literatures. They summarize recent research, provide integrations of management literatures, and highlight important directions for future inquiries. The Review Issue is open to all areas of management, including such disciplines as strategy, entrepreneurship, human resource management, organizational behavior, organizational theory, and research methods.
Proposals should be submitted between June 1, 2012 and July 1, 2012 via the Journal of Management’s online submission portal at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jom (please be sure to select Review Issue Proposal as the submission type).
Please note that we are not accepting manuscripts until June 1, 2012.
Generally speaking, proposals should be double-spaced and include no more than seven pages of text. References, tables, and appendices do not count against this page limit. All proposals will be subject to editorial review.
Submissions will be evaluated with respect to the following criteria and successful proposals tend to speak to these criteria:
− Relevance. The proposed manuscript should thoroughly review a significant and important research area within the organizational sciences.
− Viability. The proposal should represent an achievable project within the tight time constraints required. More detail on the timeline is provided below.
− Scope of Interest. Papers of broad interest to scholars in a variety of specialty areas are greatly preferred. Organization and Coherence. The proposal should follow a logical structure, read clearly, and thoroughly represent the available research.
