Tracy Anderson, Assistant Professor in the Department of Management and Technology, has been appointed as a member of the Editorial Review Board of the Academy of Management Review (AMR). Her appointment is effective from July 1 until the end of June 2026.

The primary function of an Editorial Review Board is to maintain the quality and integrity of a research journal.

"For me, being a reviewer is a really good opportunity to help other scholars, especially those who may be submitting their first or early manuscripts. I believe that a reviewer's job is not only to point out the weaknesses in a manuscript but to also provide helpful suggestions on how to overcome them. I want to ensure that my reviews are constructive and contribute to the development of the manuscript. I also strive to provide timely responses to avoid keeping authors waiting for too long," says Professor Anderson.

Published by the Academy of Management, AMR's self-styled mission "is to publish theoretical insights that advance our understanding of management and organizations. Submissions to AMR must extend theory in ways that develop testable knowledge-based claims. To do this, researchers can develop new management and organization theory, significantly challenge or clarify existing theory, synthesize recent advances and ideas into fresh, if not entirely new theory, or initiate a search for new theory by identifying and delineating a novel theoretical problem. The contributions of AMR articles often are grounded in 'normal science disciplines' of economics, psychology, sociology, or social psychology as well as nontraditional perspectives, such as the humanities."
