Aims and Scope 

Journal of Management History (JMH) reflects on the historical development of management concepts and practices, with a view to how they inform the present and shape what we are and what we do. The journal explores areas such as social-anthropological studies of organization, business history, accounting history, history as science, philosophy, fads and fashions in the practice of management and in management consulting.

JMH allows readers to appreciate the development of management concepts and the historical contexts that have influenced their progression. Through presenting the experiences of those in different times and places, JMH assists readers in improving their own judgement and helps them to understand the importance of historical perspectives in relation to contemporary management. 

Areas of coverage include:

  • The examination of established historical management concepts.
  • The historical and continuing role of the behavioural sciences in the development of management practices.
  • The historical analysis of management philosophies.
  • Methodologies for dealing with historical management materials.
  • The importance of historical perspective in understanding contemporary management.
  • Historical aspects of workplace features such as quality control, cultures and occupational health and safety.

When submitting your paper to JMH, please ensure that it has a clear statement of purpose, a statement of importance (why the paper was written and what it contributes to the body of knowledge) and clearly stated implications for further research and implications for practice. Please also ensure that you have presented reliable and valid conclusions appropriate to the methodology employed. Papers normally carry "Application Questions" which prompt a reader to consider how concepts presented in a paper should be applied. Authors are encouraged to create these themselves; please see recent issues for examples.
