Strategic Management Review are committed to providing timely, relevant, and interesting research on strategic management through an open online submission, reviewing, and publishing process. Please feel free to browse our site and register as a reader, author, or reviewer.
Our primary concern is to reflect upon, understand, and improve the effectiveness of strategic management. We seek a balance between empirical research and philosophical reflection and between topics of broad concern as well as sharply focused work of considerable depth. In both cases we look for significant implications for knowledge development and practice - for the "big picture."
We welcome submissions from a range of theoretical and methodological frameworks. We will publish work that is conscious of its epistemological and value assumptions, is consistent with its declared framework, and achieves a high level of excellence.
The scope of the journal mirrors the domain of the Business Policy and Strategy division of the Academy of Management. As such, the journal is interested in "the roles and problems of general managers - those who manage multibusiness firms or multi-functional business units."
Major topics include: strategy formulation and implementation; strategic planning and decision processes; strategic control and reward systems; resource allocation; diversification and portfolio strategies; competitive strategy; selection and behavior of general managers; and the composition and processes of top management teams.
We especially welcome submissions from new scholars in strategic management, in particular, doctoral students and junior faculty. (We invite you to introduce yourself by posting in our Thesis Abstract section of the site.) At SMR, we recognize the considerable time pressures these members of the strategic management community face with hiring and tenure deadlines and we are deeply committed to reducing the cycle time from submission to editorial decision to publication.
Moreover, this reduced cycle time will not come at the expense of quality. We are committed to a target acceptance rate of 30% - about the same acceptance rate as competitive papers submitted to the BPS division for the Annual Academy of Management Meeting. If your paper was accepted for the Academy meeting you should have a reasonable expectation of it being published in SMR.
In fact, a paper accepted in the competitive track of any major English-speaking conference (e.g. the Strategic Management Society, European Academy of Management, British Academy of Management, Canadian Administrative Sciences Association, or Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management) can be expected to be well-received at SMR. We do not privilege the data or theoretical/methodological concerns of one geographical region over another.
