About the Journal

Requirements for publication
Manuscripts accepted for publication must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Scientific rigour: the scientific contribution of the manuscripts should be of the highest quality and rigour and all experimentations (either with theoretically generated or empirical data) should be described in a way that facilitates their reproducibility.
  • Managerial relevance: all manuscripts must contain a section or sub-section on the managerial implications and impact of the research for real world practices.
  • Value-to-length relationship: the value/contribution of the manuscript must be proportional to its length. Please consider complementing your submission with an Electronic Companion.
  • Language: the language and presentation must be of high quality: where they are not, manuscripts will be rejected regardless of the value of their scientific content.
  • Title: The title must be interesting, clear and concise, and relevant to the general audience of the journal.
  • Abstract: The abstract must be written in language that the general audience can understand, appreciate and relate to. That is, the use of heavy technicalities and jargon should be avoided, and the abstract must contain statements covering explicit managerial implications and relevance.
