General Call for Papers

Journal of Management for Global Sustainability is a peer- reviewed scholarly journal devoted exclusively to the publication of original research in the field of management and global sustainability. Global sustainability is the broad set of interconnected issues that encompass, but are not limited to, achieving environmental preservation, social entrepreneurship, poverty eradication, social justice, desirable production and consumption patterns, species preservation, and spiritually rich lives at this time in our species’ history on this planet. The journal publishes articles on how productive enterprises contribute to realizing and achieving global sustainability to create socially just and spiritually-whole ways for all species to thrive forever.

The journal welcomes submissions from all disciplines for manuscripts that contribute to our academic understanding of the role of management in achieving global sustainability. These articles shall be subject to a double-blind review process overseen by an international editorial board. Submissions of theoretical work, empirical studies, book reviews, pedagogical tools and practitioner manuscripts are all encouraged. The journal shall solicit articles in both Spanish and English—with a corresponding review process to be conducted in either language. The word length for a typical manuscript is between 6,000 to 10,000 words.
