Aims and Scope 

The Journal of Management History (JMH) is an interdisciplinary journal and publishes rigorous, high-quality research using diverse methodologies and theoretical approaches. We nevertheless hold to the view that carefully formulated empirical, historical evidence is a precondition for disciplinary advancement; and also that utilisation of the scientific method, based around the testing of theses, drawn from our existing knowledge and contributing to that knowledge, is the methodological bedrock of our discipline. Management history research should also draw on relevant theoretical frameworks and provide conclusions that extend and develop these frameworks. Papers should expound a clear methodology, including any possible limitations, and show a developed sense of historical context.

As a management journal, JMH is interested in papers that consider issues dealing with business, management and organisations, broadly defined. Such issues include, but are not restricted to, organisational behaviour, labor relations, institutional histories and case studies, industry histories, the role of gender, race and ethnicity in shaping patters of work and managerial organisation, cultural studies with an historic dimensions, research that shows the impact of managerial organisation on communities, developments and changes in managerial ideas, practices and theoretical frameworks and the impact of demographic and economic changes on management.

As an historical journal, JMH is dedicated to the publication of papers with a clear historical dimension. Simply tracing the development of a literature in a given field is not historical research. Such papers, unless of exceptional merit and theoretical sophistication, will not published.

As an international journal, JMH aims to bring together the leading research from across the global. It is particularly interested in research from scholars located outside the Anglosphere and work that highlights national peculiarities and similarities. Nationally-embedded research nevertheless should show clear appreciation of the wider management history literature and be able to contribute to that literature.
