Submission Guidelines for JMSR

Authors will be scholars in business and management, but also in psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, and of course, religion. They will wish to develop the arena and support a dedicated publication of this genre; or may have found it difficult to get their work published in mainstream or other specialized journals.

Any aspect of spirituality or religion affecting, shaping, engaging, or informing management and organising will be of interest to the Journal. Empirical as well as conceptual and theory-oriented articles and research notes will be considered. We also welcome case-studies; and reflections and observations, which should follow the academic paper format but may have a more personal reflexive style.

Articles should be between 5,000 and 9,000 words in length and Research Notes not more than 3,500 words. The title should not exceed ten words and an abstract of not more than 150 words, as well as up to six keywords should be provided. Notes and Endnotes should be used only if absolutely necessary and must be identified in the text by consecutive numbers, enclosed in square brackets and listed at the end of the article. Tables, figures, charts and diagrams should be kept to a minimum, they must be numbered consecutively with Roman numerals and a brief title.

Submissions should include a cover letter with the author’s full name and title, institutional affiliation (if applicable), e-mail address, mailing address, and the article’s full title.

References should be formatted in the following style. In the text, e.g. (Mitroff and Denton 1999), Covey (1990) elaborated in the reference list at the end of the article, as follows:

Articles: Mitroff, I.I. and Denton, E.A. 1999. A study of spirituality in the workplace. Sloan Management Review , 40(4), 83-92.

Books: Covey, S. 1990. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People . New York, NY: The Business Library.

All manuscripts should be forwarded by e-mail to: skauanui@fgcu.edu and a copy sent to j-msr@hotmail.com .

Articles submitted should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. A copyright agreement will be signed by the author(s) when accepted for publication.

Reviews will be blind. As such, any self-identifying markers in the submission (such as the author’s name, mailing address and e-mail address, or references to previous publications by the author) must be deleted or changed in the body of the text, as well as in the manuscript’s header, endnotes, and example pages. The editors will forward all article submissions to at least
two expert reviewers to evaluate the quality of each submission. These reviewers will be drawn from both our editorial board and outside scholars. Submissions by the editors and the editorial board will go through the same blind-review process.
