Aims and Scope

Management and Organization Review (MOR) aims to be the premier journal for advancing our knowledge of management and organizations in China and other emerging economies. It is a multidisciplinary journal rooted in the behavioral and social sciences underlying management research, broadly defined. MOR seeks to publish research from diverse social science disciplines such as organization behavior, organization theory, strategic management, economics, economic geography, innovation theories, anthropology, political science, political, cross-cultural, and social psychology, international business, sociology, cognitive science, and institutional theory.

MOR aspires to attract papers that challenge themselves not only to be methodologically sound but substantively contributing to our understanding of phenomena that are new to the literature and relevant to China or emerging economies. Papers published in MOR can focus on all types of organizations such as firms, academic, educational, and cultural institutions, not for profits, NGOs, governmental organizations, and State Owned Enterprises.

MOR has an inclusive disciplinary and methodological philosophy and welcomes research at all levels of analysis, such as individual, group, organization, industry, institution, economic systems, international business, and societal cultural studies. MOR editors are especially interested in attracting and publishing forward-looking papers that break new ground, rather than papers that make incremental contributions, as well as papers that elucidate indigenous management theories. MOR is open to diverse rigorously executed social science research methodologies including qualitative research, surveys, archival and historical analyses, content analysis, laboratory experiments, simulations, and computational methods, as well as papers that synthesize or translate theories and empirical research that make research accessible to scholars outside of disciplinary sub-fields.

The editors recognize that important new insights are often discovered at the intersection of established theories, research methods, and specific research questions. When considering papers submitted to MOR the editors consider these questions: Does it fall within the domain of MOR? Does it offer fresh insights? Does it tell an interesting story? Is it methodologically competent? And does the evidence or logic substantiate the conclusions?

To enrich scholarly discourse and promote theoretical innovation, MOR will occasionally publish “Perspective” papers that direct attention to new important evidence-based phenomenon or that redirect or shut down a line of research. Perspective papers will be reviewed in the same way as all other papers published in MOR. In addition, “Momentum” is a special editorial area intended to break ground for the future, revisit past debates, and capture and highlight important current issues in management and globalization. It features essays and interviews designed to stimulate and engage vibrant Dialog, Debates, and Discourse in the scholarly community.


Management and sociology academics with an interest in China and East Asia generally, and in the fields of international and cross-cultural management.
