Submissions to our journal can ONLY be made via our submission center https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/aomannals
AOM does NOT charge any fees for author submissions. Please be mindful of scams and predatory publishers, who are using the name of established journals to solicit content from authors. Submissions to AOM journals are not published “On Demand” and go through a rigorous review process.
Academy of Management Annals (Annals) is the highest ranked peer-reviewed journal in the categories of management and business. Articles submitted to Annals review, synthesize, interpret, and critique the literature on management-related topics. Annals reviews not only summarize recent literature, but feature critical and potentially provocative positions that are grounded in the review.
Annals publishes two issues per year: January and July.
Although Annals permits rolling submissions, the submissions are not reviewed by the editors until the submission deadline has passed. Since proposals are peer-reviewed, decision letters on proposals are sent out approximately six weeks after the submission deadline.
