Management Practice Insights


There are over 2 million journal articles published in around 30,000 academic journals every year. But data shows that, on an average, only about 10 people will read a peer-reviewed paper completely. A lot of the insights, derived from these cutting-edge research papers, never reach the audience they can benefit from, and Management Practice Insights (MPI) is an attempt to bridge this gap.

MPI is an open-access journal that seeks to provide actionable, evidence-based insights to managers and business leaders worldwide. The aim of MPI is to publish articles, inspired by recent, top-tier academic research, which highlight how these academic insights have practical implications for managers.

Every article in this journal puts the spotlight on a current managerial challenge and provides insights on how managers can approach the issue by citing real-world success stories and cautionary tales. The articles aim to translate the academic-speak into bare-bones insights which can be used by managers.

Be it finance, innovation, operations management, strategy, marketing, business analytics or information systems or any other field, MPI aims to provide insights that can help managers across verticals create better workflows. We welcome essays that have practical relevance and the potential to influence management practice.
