The Journal of Management Education, a leading voice in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) in management, is now seeking review articles. In “Times Change and We With Them,” his first editorial introduction, the journal’s new Editor-in-Chief Jon Billsberry of Deakin University writes:
In many mature fields of scholarly endeavor, authors are able to track down review articles that quickly inform them of the state of the art in the discipline. Systematic reviews, selective reviews, and meta-analyses all serve the purpose of establishing the current “state of play” in a domain. To date, there have been very few scholarly reviews in the management education literature. But given that this is a rapidly maturing field in which many subjects have written about extensively, now is the time to codify these bodies of knowledge. Accordingly, one of our new initiatives is to publish articles that review management education domains. I hope that these will be a feature of the journal and I have appointed an Associate Editor, Michael Cohen, to work exclusively on these types of papers. Some of these we will be commissioning, and they will still be subject to our rigorous double-blind review process, but we would welcome ideas for reviews as well. We are open to various forms of review, but I would recommend discussing any ideas for reviews with Michael first so that you do not duplicate work that we already have in the pipeline and to check that the subject of your review falls under our ambit.
