Journal of Management, Spirituality and Religion (JMSR)

Since its first issue in 2004, JMSR has published some 500 scholarly papers – empirical and reflexive, theory development, case-studies and book reviews – the largest depository of current knowledge in this fast evolving scholarly field.

JMSR is proud to be the leading  academic forum for disseminating work, for the development of theory and best practice, and for the exchange of ideas and debate in Management, Spirituality and Religion.

We serve three large communities: students and scholars of spirituality and religion pertaining to management and organizations; students and scholars in religious studies and practical theology relevant to work, managing and organizing; practioners in the field of spirituality and religion, including religious post holders and practising managers. We encompass, without prejudicing any belief or none, a multitute of interests and concerns. JMSR wishes to define the field through conceptual, theoretical and empirical understandings of MSR that include: interdiciplinary and multi methodological approaches – all spiritual and religious traditions – examining the relationship between MSR and society – critical, theological and philosophical relfections on MSR – metaphysical explanations of MSR.
