Scope of Submissions 

The Australian Journal of Management is interested in original, innovative and highly rigorous research. The domain of study (be it defined by country, management problem, or methodological approach) is much less important than quality and interest to both an academic readership and, preferably, a sophisticated practitioner one.

To be of interest to this journal, a submission would need a compelling motivation that would generalise to a wide audience, with strong theoretical basis with good empirical design, or offer a strong advance in theory.
