    About SMR:

    The SMR publishes ideas that matter for strategic management research. Specifically, the SMR features provocative essays and forward-looking reviews to guide the questions tackled by research in the field. The journal complements existing strategic management outlets that emphasize empirical research, and it aims to promote insights on core questions in the strategic management field through impactful essays. These essays can take many forms, including (a) essays on the theoretical foundations of strategic management and the theoretical perspectives emanating from the field, (b) scholarly exchanges, (c) thought pieces dealing with managerial practice or public policy, (d) methodological primers on advances relevant for strategic management research, (e) state-of-the-art reviews or research retrospectives, and (f) forward-looking literature critiques. Prospective authors are encouraged to consult the journal's website ( and join the SMR's LinkedIn community ( for additional information

    We look forward to seeing you all at the WBS London campus at the Shard.
