Information for Authors

General Submission Rules

Submitted articles cannot be previously published, be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic) or be under review in any journal. Please note: acceptance at a conference without archival proceedings such as AoM or "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication but such submissions need to be reported while submitting to the journal. By submitting material to Engaged Management ReView, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Engaged Management ReView.

Manuscript Categories

The journal publishes five genres of research — dissertation digests, empirical, topic, translation, and essay papers— that communicate in different ways and logics how a specific practitioner-scholar inquiry has improved an organizational situation. The articles are expected to be structured with a stringent limit of 5,000 words for empirical and translation papers, 8,000 words for essay papers and dissertation digests, and 3,000 words for topic papers. The journal also welcomes high-level reviews of relevant research streams that can inform engaged management scholarship. A short editorial note on the usefulness to management practice will accompany each published article.

Frequency of Publication

The journal is an electronic outlet. The journal will publish between 2 and 4 articles per issue for each volume, with about 4 issues per volume.

Overview of the Review Process

Mode: Double-blind (names of reviewers and authors are not revealed to each other).

Organization: The journal review procedures will be monitored by Managing Editors, consisting of an Editor-In-Chief (EiC) and Associate Editors. Each article will first be reviewed by the Editor-In-Chief (EiC) and/or one of the Associate Editors. If considered within the scope of the journal, the manuscript is then circulated to two or three reviewers where at least one of the reviewers is an academic and at least one is a practitioner scholar student or alumnus selected for their expertise in the research area of the submitted paper.

Acceptance rate: The initial target acceptance rate is expected to be around 30% of submitted papers.

Review cycle-time: Each review process from time of submission to posting online is expected to take no more than 4 months—the initial average cycle time is set up to be less than 70 days. The journal will allow in most cases at most 2 review cycles and seeks to make the acceptance decision on a timely basis.
