Aims and Scope

As the first reviews journal in the field of business and management, the International Journal of Management Reviews (IJMR) is an essential reference tool for business academics and doctoral students alike.  The journal covers all the main management sub-disciplines including, for example, HRM, OB, International & Strategic Management, Operations Management, Management Sciences, Information Systems & Technology Management, Accounting & Finance, and Marketing.  Each issue includes state-of-the-art literature review articles/surveys which examine the relevant literature published on a specific aspect of the sub-discipline, for example, HRM: Appraisal Systems. 

The IJMR complements the other publications produced by the British Academy of Management and is deliberately targeted at a wide readership interested in business and management.  The journal publishes authoritative literature surveys and reviews.  These will address the intellectual and academic needs of the broad academic management community on a global scale.

Such papers are targeted at several key audiences or readerships:Members of the academic community who will expect to be kept abreast of disciplinary areas outside of their own specific domains of expertise.  

  • The journal will enable senior faculty to undertake more interdisciplinary research by providing a wider understanding or emerging thought and methodological developments in other fields, and by so doing, facilitating the development of transdisciplinarity.

  • More established researchers who are looking to update their knowledge in their own particular field, or who are shifting their area of focus or developing collaborative or inter-disciplinary work extending beyond their established specialisation.

  • Supporting doctoral candidates in the production of their theses by producing comprehensive reviews/debates and to locate their research within past, present and future debates. The editors are committed to a swift response to submitted articles and endeavour to ensure a 12 week turnaround time for each cycle of the review process.
