Research Briefs

The Research Briefs section of The Academy of Management Perspectives (AMP) features journalistic summaries of selected empirical research articles of interest to management scholars and practitioners. Research Briefs appear online only, not in the print edition. A goal of the Briefs section is to cast a wide net and highlight the latest research that appears outside of Academy of Management publications. Consequently, Research Briefs summarize articles--selected by the Research Briefs Editor--that appear in a wide range of top academic journals both inside and outside of the management mainstream (e.g., journals in economics, finance, management, public policy, psychology, sociology, and political science, among others). Research Briefs serve important needs for AMP’s audience and mission by broadening the research horizons of management scholars.
