AMD Guideposts


AMD’s forthcoming content feature

Guideposts are short (up to 1,000 word) papers solicited from a small set of the most distinguished, senior scholars in our field. Consistent with the primary mission of AMD—to disseminate new, empirically-driven insights regarding phenomena or patterns of relations that current concepts fail to take account of, and extant theories fail to adequately explain—the aim of Guideposts is to leverage the knowledge, experience and intuition of renowned scholars in order to identify those phenomena or patterns of relations requiring the kind of empirically-driven studies that AMD seeks to publish. With Guideposts, AMD seeks to provide all management scholars with the opportunity to learn from our field’s visionaries and thought leaders, and to get first-hand suggestions regarding the most glaring gaps and disturbing anomalies or inconsistencies remaining to be bridged or resolved in a given research domain.

Guideposts content will

  • surface or propose new ways of new approaches for exploring emergent and/or poorly understood phenomena with potentially significant implications
  • identify unanswered or emergent questions, as well as nomological networks worthy of future empirical exploration.
  • highlight anomalies and research inconsistencies demanding a resolution
