View the 2016 Subscription Package, which includes Management Teaching Review.

The Journal of Management Education, a leading voice in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) for over 40 years, is dedicated to enhancing teaching and learning in the management and organizational disciplines. Our published articles reflect changes and developments in the conceptualization, organization, and practice of management education. The Journal of Management Education maintains a long-standing editorial commitment to growth, learning, and innovation and uses a developmental approach in working with authors throughout the review process so that they may communicate their ideas and insights to others.

While our target audience is university educators teaching in the management and organizational studies domain, our broader constituency includes administrators, managers, trainers, consultants, and coaches.

Regular Features

  • Research Articles... qualitative and/or quantitative studies that directly affect teaching strategies and/or learning while emphasizing the pedagogical implications of these studies so that readers can apply the findings to their own teaching practice
  • Theoretical and Conceptual Articles… explore contemporary issues in management education with the purpose of building new theories or critiquing existing ones
  • Essays… thoughtfully reflect on and discuss important teaching and learning issues in management education; may contain first-person narrative accounts presenting lessons learned from personally challenging experiences in teaching management or present well-developed arguments for revising what is taught in management education
  • Rejoinders… engage with controversial or provocative essays or articles by offering different perspectives on the theme or focus
  • Instructional Innovations… present cutting-edge, experientially-oriented teaching and learning approaches with sufficient detail and evidence of effectiveness for readers to implement the activities in their own environments
  • Instructional Change in Context… describe, analyze, and evaluate teaching or curricular change initiatives within specific institutional or cultural contexts that provide inspiration to readers who may be in the same or a similar situation.

In addition to the Journal of Management Education, the Management & Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (MOBTS) also publishes Management Teaching Review.

The Journal of Management Education (JME) encourages contributions that respond to important issues in management education. The overriding question that guides the journal’s double-blind peer review process is: Will this contribution have a significant impact on thinking and/or practice in management education?

Contributions may be either conceptual or empirical in nature, and are welcomed from any topic area and any country so long as their primary focus is on learning and/or teaching issues in management or organization studies. Although our core areas of interest are organizational behavior and management, we are also interested in teaching and learning developments in related domains such as human resource management & labor relations, social issues in management, critical management studies, diversity, ethics, organizational development, production and operations, sustainability, etc. We are open to all approaches to scholarly inquiry that form the basis for high quality knowledge creation and dissemination within management teaching and learning.

Authors are strongly encouraged to have their work reviewed and evaluated by their colleagues prior to submission for formal editorial review. Guidance for authors may be garnered by examining what JME has published in recent years, by studying the journal’s submission guidelines, and by communicating with members of the editorial board, the editorial team, or the editor.

    2. Editorial policies

    2.1 Peer review policy

    Journal of Management Education utilizes double-blind peer review as its process for evaluating manuscripts submitted for potential publication. As such, manuscripts that have ANY identifying information in any aspect of the submission (main document, figures or tables, supplementary information, etc) will be returned to the author without being reviewed.

    Each submitted manuscript will be sent to at least two expert referees for their developmental comments, suggestions, and ultimate recommendation to the editors about the suitability of the manuscript for publication.

    The Journal of Management Education is committed to delivering high quality, fast peer-review for your paper, and as such has partnered with Publons. Publons is a third-party service that seeks to track, verify and give credit for peer review. Reviewers for the Journal of Management Education can opt in to Publons in order to claim their reviews or have them automatically verified and added to their reviewer profile. Reviewers claiming credit for their review will be associated with the relevant journal, but the article name, reviewer’s decision, and the content of their review is not published on the site. For more information visit the Publons website.

    The Editor or members of the Editorial Board may occasionally submit their own manuscripts for possible publication in the journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by alternative members of the Board and the submitting Editor/Board member will have no involvement in the decision-making process.

    2.2 Authorship

    All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A graduate student usually is listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis.

    2.3 Acknowledgements

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, who pre-reviewed the work and offered useful suggestions that were integrated into the submitted manuscript, or a department chair who provided only general support.

    2.3.1 Writing assistance

    Individuals who provided writing assistance, e.g. from a specialist communications company, do not qualify as authors and so should be included in the Acknowledgements section. Authors must disclose any writing assistance – including the individual’s name, company and level of input – and identify the entity that paid for this assistance).

    It is not necessary to disclose use of language polishing services.

    Please supply any personal acknowledgements on the Title Page (separately to the main document) to facilitate anonymous peer review.

    2.4 Funding

    Journal of Management Education requires all authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate heading. Please visit the Funding Acknowledgements page on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway to confirm the format of the acknowledgment text in the event of funding, or state that: This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

    2.5 Declaration of conflicting interests

    It is the policy of Journal of Management Education to require a declaration of conflicting interests from all authors that enables a statement to be provided within the paginated pages of all published articles. Please ensure that a ‘Declaration of Conflicting Interests’ statement is included at the end of your manuscript, prior to the references. If no conflict exists, please state that ‘The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict of interest’.

     

    2.6 Research ethics and patient consent

    All papers reporting human studies must state in the methods section that the relevant Ethics Committee or Institutional Review Board provided (or waived) approval. Please ensure that you have provided the full name and institution of the review committee, in addition to the approval number if available.

    For research articles, authors are also required to state in the methods section whether participants provided informed consent and whether the consent was written or verbal.

    Information on informed consent to report individual cases or case series should be included in the manuscript text. A statement is required regarding whether written informed consent for patient information and images to be published was provided by the patient(s) or a legally authorized representative.

    Please also refer to the ICMJE Recommendations for the Protection of Research Participants
