A New Forum for Practical Research

New magazine focuses on practical research.

Organizers have announced the upcoming launch of Management and Business Review (MBR), a magazine designed to bridge management practice, education, and research.

MBR is co-sponsored by ten international business schools: the Anderson School of Management at UCLA, China Europe International Business School, City University of Hong Kong, the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, the Indian School of Business, INSEAD, the Johnson College of Business at Cornell University, the Owen Graduate School of Business at Vanderbilt University, the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, and the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University.

While many articles in MBR will be rooted in research, they must contain a clear management message, address real-world business systems, and tie research to concrete management practices, says Kalyan Singhal, McCurdy Professor of Innovation, Operations, and Supply-Chain Management at the Merrick School of Business at the University of Baltimore in Maryland. Singhal will be one of the magazine’s co-editors, along with Wallace J. Hopp, Herrick Professor of Business and Associate Dean of Learning Design at the Ross School. The editors plan to invite authors to write “practitioners’ versions” of articles, and they expect to conduct workshops that will help contributors write for nonacademic audiences.

The magazine will include departments in traditional disciplinary domains as well as a handful of multidisciplinary domains, including disaster management, digital transformation, energy and sustainability, entrepreneurship, innovation, public policy, and strategy.
