California Management Review

"CMR is looking for freelance bloggers! A globally reputed academic business journal, California Management Review serves as a vehicle of communication between those who study management and those who practice it. The freelance blogging program is intended to expand CMR’s audience, scope, and reach by inviting outside writers to contribute to our blog. Our strategy focuses on using our blog as a critical point of connection between our social medial channels and our formal journal content. Our bloggers explore and analyze the fascinating, complex challenges of modern management theory and practice. The CMR blog has recently featured posts on Burning Man, 3D printing, Diversity in Silicon Valley, and the challenges of Workplace Culture. You can read more about the Program and apply now at http://cmr.berkeley.edu/blog/freelance. Please note that it can take up to four weeks for the University to process a contractor's invoice. While we would love to be able to pay immediately upon publication, because of the size and overall complexity of the University vendoring system, sending payments takes some time. We realize this is frustrating, which is why we want to be upfront with this process." Usually publishes ms within 2 weeks of the final revisions. Buys one-time rights. No reprints. Read more →
