Academy of Management Discoveries

Mission Statement

The mission of Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD) is to publish phenomenon-driven empirical research that theories of management and organizations neither adequately predict nor explain. Data on these poorly understood phenomena can come from any source, including ethnographic observations, lab and field experiments, field surveys, meta-analyses, construct validation research, and replication studies. AMD welcomes exploratory research at the pre-theory stage of knowledge development, where it is premature to specify hypotheses, and which generates surprising findings likely to stimulate and guide further exploration and analysis. This research must be grounded in rigorous state-of-the-art methods, present strong and persuasive evidence, and offer interesting and important implications for management theory and practice.
