    Instructions for Authors

    The Journal of Management (JOM) publishes scholarly empirical, theoretical, and review articles dealing with management. Manuscripts that are suitable for publication in the journal cover areas such as business strategy and policy, entrepreneurship, human resource management, organizational behavior, organizational theory, and research methods.
    The following brief checklist provides a quick reference for you to follow during your submission and manuscript review process.

    • Papers submitted should not be under concurrent consideration at another journal.
    • Any actual or potential data overlap with previous studies should be noted and described in the letter to the Editor. In order to maintain masked review, provide an anonymized data transparency table describing actual or potential data overlap. 
    • All new manuscripts should be submitted electronically. Electronic submissions should be uploaded to the Journal of Management by accessing http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jom.
    • Files should be submitted in Microsoft Word format.
    • All manuscripts must adhere to the JOM Style Guide.
    • All authors of quantitative manuscripts will attest that their submission meets the respective data reporting requirements as specified on the Journal’s homepage.
    • Papers that violate the spirit of the guidelines (e.g., papers that are single-spaced, papers that use footnotes rather than conventional referencing formats, papers that greatly exceed 50 pages), or which do not clearly fit the mission of the journal will be immediately returned to authors without being reviewed.
    • Authors should keep in mind that papers are evaluated on a page-to-contribution ratio.
    • We encourage you to have a colleague peer review any paper prior to submission to the Journal of Management. To maintain masked review, please acknowledge your peer reviewer(s) and include other author notes in the letter to the Editor.
    • During the review process, including at the Conditional Accept stage, manuscripts may be subject to additional methodological screening that may require the submission of additional information (e.g. analysis code; analysis output; original data). 
    • Accepted papers must fully adhere to the guidelines.
    • Published papers will use the affiliations of each author at the time of the original submission. No changes can be made at any stage in the review/publication process.
    • Changes in authorship (e.g. addition; subtraction; change in order) during a revision process must be clearly explained in a letter to the Editor.

    Points of Interest

    • Submissions will be acknowledged via email upon receipt. We strive to make an editorial decision in under 90 days, but circumstances beyond our control occasionally dictate a longer cycle.
    • Each paper is typically reviewed by at least two reviewers and is also read by the action editor (either the Editor or an Associate Editor). Results of our decision, along with copies of the reviews, will be forwarded to the contact author as quickly as possible.
    • If authors are invited to prepare a revision for further consideration, our letters of invitation will outline the key issues to be resolved and an assessment of the likelihood of success.
    • Authors are normally given three to six months from the date of the invitation to prepare a revision. Our policy is to strive to make a final publication decision after one or two revisions (of course, further work may also be requested to resolve any remaining issues).
    • Papers accepted to the Journal of Management become part of the OnlineFirst system, which provides immediate access to finalized manuscripts prior to their physical printing. Relatively few articles can be printed in any given issue of the Journal of Management, so there is some time lag between online and in-print publication; nevertheless articles published OnlineFirst are published. OnlineFirst allows researchers and others in the field to read and cite the most current information available. Please go to http://jom.sagepub.com/content/early/recent to view in press articles.
    • As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.

      The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

      If you do not already have an ORCID iD please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.

    Thank you for considering the Journal of Management as a publication outlet. We look forward to reviewing your research!
