Quality Management Journal Author Guidelines
Quality Management Journal(QMJ) is foremost a research journal. To be appropriate, an article should be grounded in research and theory.
QMJ publishes only original work, not work previously published or under review by another publication. Types of articles suitable for publication in QMJ include the following:
- Empirical articles that provide objective evidence concerning actual quality management practice and its effectiveness. These articles should be written in a manner that emphasizes the managerial implications of the research results and the rationale for the study. Articles should demonstrate use of accepted methods for empirical research.
- Research case studies that consider either a single application or a small number of cases. These articles should include a structured approach for comparison of the cases and should lead to a set of propositions. Either quantitative or qualitative comparison is appropriate. For a helpful description of research case studies, see K. M. Eisenhardt’s 1989 article, “Building Theories from Case Study Research,” in Academy of Management Review (Volume 14, No. 4, pages 532-550).
- Management theory articles that present significant new insight and demonstrated practice. These articles should include testable propositions and should offer a foundation for future empirical research.
- Review articles that create links to the existing academic literature and aid in the development of an identifiable quality management academic literature. Such articles should represent a synthesis of existing literature and should demonstrate an understanding of quality management theory and practice.
