Who can submit Papers?

We are open to quality work from established scholars and from younger scholars entering these important fields of scholarship. We are also open to papers from scholars interested in the co-production of knowledge between scholars and practitioners and those interested in engaged scholarship whose purposes are to create more impactful social science and management research. We recognise, of course, that most discoveries and developments are more likely to be incremental than radical, but those professing radicalism are also welcome to submit their manuscripts.

In which categories you can submit your papers?
We are inviting submissions of research work within the following three broad areas of academic inquiry:

  • Track 1: Higher Education Management Research
  • Track 2: Management Education Research
  • Track 3: Research on Business Schools

Review Process
All submissions will be subjected to a double-blind and competitive review process.
Preference will be given to papers which deal with new developments and discoveries in higher education management, management education or research on business schools. The developments could be work expanding or shaping new fields of inquiry, bringing new conceptual work into these fields from related parts of management and the social sciences, or new empirical findings. In addition, we are also welcoming papers which offer well-argued critiques of existing scholarship and in other ways challenge existing theories, methods and empirical findings.
