In addition to publishing high quality research on a regular basis, every year we will have a special feature edition. For example,

a. A “State of the Practice” edition. This edition would have about 12 pieces (around 3000 words each), typically written by well-known scientist-practitioners. Each peer-reviewed piece would discuss best practices in a particularpractice area that are extremely relevant in today’s business world (e.g., Succession Planning; High Potential Identification). In addition, and most importantly, the piece would discuss the type of research that is needed tohelp in this area from a practice perspective. This would hopefully promote our science/practice ideals and further support the notion of evidence based management.
