    STR Members,

    Have interesting findings that are not well explained by current theories? Struggling with how to retrofit interesting data into a "theoretical framework" suitable for publication? Want to be more upfront and transparent about your data mining? If the answer is "yes" to any or all of these questions, consider submitting to Academy of Management Discoveries.

    AMD is a premier journal for the empirical exploration of data describing or investigating compelling phenomena where there is a lack of clear, explanatory, existing theory. The goal with every AMD paper is to use empirical explorations, and the novel theoretical explanations such findings suggest, to open new lines of inquiry in management research.

    At AMD, we encourage transparency and openness in presenting research. Authors are able to present the results of data mining without the need to "reverse engineer" any theoretical framework or hypotheses (HARKing). AMD publishes discoveries resulting from the exploration of both quantitative and qualitative data sources.

    Want to learn more?  Check out Academy of Management Discoveries for information on the journal, on our COVID special research theme, on Discoveries-in-Brief, our creative writing initiative, and how to submit a Registered Report.

    We are interested in seeing more STR authors in AMD and look forward to your submissions!

    Most sincerely,
