This journal is open access
Aims and scope
The European Journal of Management Studies (EJMS) publishes original papers that use quantitative and qualitative approaches for researching the management of organizations, including approaches from disciplines such as: strategy, marketing, human resources, organisational behaviour, operations and logistics, economic sociology, finance, accounting, management control, taxation, information systems for management, entrepreneurship, and international management. The Journal places great emphasis on a rigorous and timely analysis of submitted papers, all of which undergo a double-blind peer-review process.
The Journal publishes research papers, reviews and/or discussions of the literature, research case studies and reviews of books with relevance for its scope. We aim to be a rigorous scientific journal in terms of argumentation and methodology, which is however pluralist and interdisciplinary in its contents, as aligned to a culture of pluralism and interdisciplinarity. We are not constrained by specific local systems of validity as paradigms or epistemes. We do encourage new ideas, methods, analyses and arguments which inform and develop understanding and application of management and organizations in Europe and internationally.
The European Journal of Management Studies is edited at ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics and Management, Universidade de Lisboa. The re-launched EJMS replaced the 20 year-old Portuguese Journal of Management Studies as from 2015. This change reflects the incorporation of ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics and Management – into the largest and best ranked university in Portugal – Universidade de Lisboa. The first volume was published in 1993, under the name of “Estudos de Gestão”, and since the beginning of 2005 the Journal has been renamed the “Portuguese Journal of Management”, which was re-launched as the European Journal of Management Studies in 2015.
If deemed suitable, submissions from contributors affiliated to ISEG, or other schools from the University of Lisbon are evaluated for publication by at least two referees who are not affiliated with neither ISEG nor the University of Lisbon. This procedure is in accordance to the rules of the journal in that the peer review is conducted by at least two referees who are not affiliated with the same institutions as the author(s) of the contributions being evaluated. Furthermore, researchers who hold positions as Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editor do not submit research papers to this journal.
