Journal of Management Development- Call for Reviewers

Journal of Management Development

The Editorial team of Journal of Management Development is seeking out new reviewers for 2023. JMD has seen a positive increase in rankings in recent years, having seen a continuous increase in Scopus CiteScore, peaking in 2022 at 5.5. We are now looking to diversify and expand our reviewer pool. We are interested in any reviewers with relevant knowledge in the general field of management/leadership development. We particularly welcome early-career researchers.

Reviews are performed on the ScholarOne Manuscripts submissions platform – it is easy to create an account here. When you are creating your account, it is important to add in your areas of expertise so we can select the appropriate manuscripts to be sent to you; it is also helpful to add your methodological preference if you have one – e.g. quantitative, qualitative, computational simulation. 

We also welcome research students to join the review process as this can be really helpful for their own careers (providing experience for their own submissions in the future, experience to add to CVs etc), so do consider this if you are a research student, or pass on the information if you have research students yourself.

ScholarOne provides some guidance for new reviewers which may help if you have never completed a review before. Emerald also offers a peer review hub with further resources. You can also get in touch with the editorial team, if you want guidance that is specific to JMD. We suggest you look at all these links as they contain useful information to help you perform your review. If you are unable to review the manuscript you are sent, it is helpful for our team if you can recommend someone else who might be able to review it. 

As a thank you for your contributions to the journal, you are entitled to free personal access to up 40 Emerald journal articles (excluding backfiles) on Emerald Insight. This access is valid for a 90-day period from when you receive your access notification. This is just one of the many benefits of becoming a reviewer- Emerald goes into more details about reviewer benefits here. Thank you very much for considering getting involved with JMD, and we look forward to seeing you as a reviewer!
