‘For many, the process of publishing in the best management journals is an enigma wrapped in a mystery. Even when they are successful, they are never sure why. And too often rejections hurt, but don’t provide insight about how to increase the likelihood of success. This book begins to unwrap this enigma by describing the process and providing practical guidance that scholars at all levels can use to navigate this intellectual minefield. I wish I had this book earlier in my career.’
– Jay B. Barney, University of Utah, US

‘Scholars seek to have their work published in the top journals, both because these elite outlets provide the most visible platforms for research products and because they confer stature on the authors and their institutions. Of course, getting published in the top journals is known to be devilishly difficult. This book, How to Get Published in the Best Management Journals, consisting of chapters written by premier, highly accomplished scholars from around the world, provides invaluable insights – ranging from the philosophical and motivational to the tactical and nitty-gritty. I wish this book had existed when I was starting out, and I will be encouraging my students and colleagues to dig into it.’
– Donald C. Hambrick, Pennsylvania State University, US
