The British Journal of Management (BJM) provides a valuable outlet for research and scholarship on management-oriented themes and topics. It publishes articles of a multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary nature as well as theoretical and empirical research from within traditional disciplines and managerial functions, based on any appropriate methodology, and selected contributions to the development of research methods. With contributions from around the globe, the journal includes articles across the full range of business and management disciplines.
