Objectives

African Journal of Management Research seeks to publish works that test, advance and develop models, frameworks and concepts in the broad areas of management, organisation, finance, public sector management, marketing and decision systems.

The Journal is international and multidisciplinary, which means that topics and themes appropriate for African Journal of Management Research will come from and cut across organisational/institutional sectors (public, private, non-for-profit) and address matters of theory, research and practice from a variety of management and organisational disciplines (finance, operations, human resource, organisational behaviour, marketing, services). The Journal’s multidisciplinary character means it seeks to promote the interplay and nexus between organisational functionality, management practice and economic/national development. The Journal’s aim is to facilitate greater understanding of organisational processes, managerial processes and functions and critical firm level challenges facing developing and emerging areas.

Papers will have strong theoretical foundations, solid and defensible methodological frameworks with clear empirical stance. In this regard, African Journal of Management Research is mainly empiricist. Our definition of ‘empiricist’ in this context is not to exclude the phenomenological. Rather that papers will have sound quantitative and/or qualitative data, rigorous design and demonstration of exploring and advancing knowledge of the world ‘as-is’. The Journal will periodically accept prescriptive, theoretical and conceptual papers (the world-as-should-be) which in its view present sufficiently ground-breaking discourse of theory, models and methodological paradigms, reviews of the literature or practice which lead to new understandings.
