Academy of Management Annals

The mission of the Academy of Management Annals (Annals) is to publish up-to-date, in-depth and integrative reviews of research advances in management. Often called "reviews with an attitude," Annals papers summarize and/or challenge established assumptions and concepts, pinpoint problems and factual errors, inspire discussions, and illuminate possible avenues for further study. Reviews published in Annals move above and beyond descriptions of the field–they motivate conceptual integration and set agendas for future research.

AOM represents one of the greatest things about this career – the community. Though the membership is huge and that may seem daunting, I still have the friends I met at my first AOM 30 years ago. These people and the many others I have met since that first AOM have become the people I go to for both professional and personal fulfillment."
