Management and Business Review

The Fox School has joined as a partner of a new journal, Management and Business Review (MBR). Subodha Kumar, the Paul R. Anderson Distinguished Chair Professor in the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management, serves as the publication’s executive editor.

Unlike other management journals, MBR is guided by a diverse group of academic advisers from dozens of business schools, as well as executive advisers from a range of consulting companies and corporations. This unique structure makes MBR exceptionally aware of the needs and interests of a wide range of readers and authors. The first two issues of the journal will be free to access.

How can I submit to the Management and Business Review (MBR)?

The MBR provides our faculty with an opportunity to publish their insights and demonstrate their leadership for business leaders, industry executives, policyholders and community members. MBR offers a wide global perspective, in-depth coverage and the ability to disseminate practical results.

Scholars can submit directly to the Management and Business Review (MBR), an executive- and executive-education-oriented journal headed by a diverse group of academics, consultants and industry experts with the aim of publishing research addressing real-world business systems.

Contact Subodha Kumar () for more information.

How can I submit to the Fox Business Review (FBR)?

Researchers at the Fox School and the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management can submit to the Fox Business Review (FBR), a quarterly translational research supplement to the MBR. This digital supplement will feature additional articles written by Fox and STHM faculty for Fox alumni.

Please submit to the Fox Business Review through this form.

Contact with questions.

What kind of work is the Fox Business Review looking for?

Submissions should be focused on the practical applications of your research, written for use by business leaders, industry executives, policyholders and community members. The Fox Business Review could be a good place for articles that are not quite ready for publications such as the Harvard Business Review or the Management and Business Review; however, the standard for review will be the same.

Contact with questions.

What is the submission process and deadlines for the Fox Business Review?

Faculty are encouraged to submit abstracts (250 words) through this form. If accepted, faculty will be notified and full articles (1,250-1,750 words) will be due around one month after acceptance. A faculty review committee will then review articles for suggested revisions and edits.

Contact with questions.

What is the word limit for articles published in the Fox Business Review?

Articles are expected to be between 1,250 and 1,750 words in length.

Interdisciplinary Event Series

Interdisciplinary approaches and translational research are important in advancing actionable insights to solve real-world problems. In pursuit of high impact research, the Fox School is introducing a cross-disciplinary theme for departmental seminars. By exploring a thematic area across departments and showcasing different perspectives in scholarship, the Translational Research Center (TRC), in partnership with the Office of Research and Doctoral Programs, aims to bring together scholars with common interests and increase opportunities for interdisciplinary research.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, the research theme was “Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability.”

For the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years, the research theme is “Artificial Intelligence.”

Past Events

TRC works to develop more sophisticated measurements of impact research and to adjust incentives and support systems to encourage translational research. TRC works with the Office of Research and other centers around the Fox School to advance translation-oriented research infrastructure, awards and celebrations.


The need for academic research with impact is increasingly talked about. But the barriers to true impact are immense, such as isolated disciplines, narrow incentives and more. Business schools can change this trajectory, but it will require bold, intentional action.
