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.

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. Contact Subodha Kumar (subodha@temple.edu) for more information.

Yes. There are two publication opportunities and they can be pursued simultaneously.

Scholars can submit directly to 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.

Additionally, researchers at the Fox School and the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management can submit to the Fox MBR Supplement, a translational research supplement that will be published quarterly and feature additional articles to be included in a customized issue of the MBR for Fox alumni. Please submit to the supplement through this form.

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 MBR Supplement could be a good place for articles that are not quite ready for publications such as the Harvard Business Review or MBR proper; however, the standard for review will be the same.

Faculty are encouraged to submit abstracts (250 words) to FoxResearch@temple.edu. 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.

The quarterly deadlines for 250-word abstracts are: 

  • February 3, 2021
  • May 5, 2021
  • August 3, 2021
  • November 3, 2021

Please submit to the supplement through this form.

Articles are expected to be between 1,500 and 2,000 words in length.

No. We encourage you to incorporate any reviewer comments and submit again to the Fox MBR Supplement.

Evidence-based Teaching and Learning

The TRC supports evidence-based teaching by helping faculty develop teaching cases and other tools and activities that bring insights and the research process itself into the classroom to enhance student understanding and engagement. We also support pedagogical research designed to provide a solid empirical foundation for teaching practices.

The Fox School is pleased to announce a partnership with Ivey Publishing, a leader in providing business case studies with a global perspective. With over 8,000 products in their collection, Ivey Publishing adds 200 classroom-tested case studies each year.

Through this partnership with Ivey Publishing, the Fox School gains an experienced ally in writing, publishing and teaching business cases. It also gives Fox faculty access to a substantial distribution platform through Ivey’s relationships with publishers in the U.S. and Europe, including the Harvard Business Review and The Case Centre. Finally, this agreement helps raise the profile of our faculty’s expertise by highlighting the Fox School logo on the front cover of all published cases.

Interdisciplinary Events 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 academic year, 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.
