Aims & Scope

The Journal of Economics & Management Strategy (JEMS) provides a leading forum for scholarly interaction and research on the competitive strategies of managers and the organizational structure of firms. The journal features theoretical and empirical industrial organization, innovation economics, and management strategy. JEMS also publishes articles on the subject of international business and economics, including articles dealing with industries in economies outside the United States. JEMS is an important resource for economists in economics departments and in schools of business and management, including departments of finance, managerial economics, accounting, marketing, organization behavior and management strategy. In addition, the journal serves as a valuable resource for managers and managerial consultants seeking up-to-date research on management strategy. The journal provides practitioners a means of access to innovative economic research on the theory of the firm. JEMS impacts research and influences other journals in industrial organization and management. JEMS also impacts management. An article in Fortune magazine called the journal a “showcase for the new research.” JEMS published a number of path-breaking special issues on accounting, marketing, telecommunications, market design, the industrial organization of health care, and the spectrum auctions, incentives and organization of the firm, and innovative directions in management strategy.
