The European Management Journal celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2012

2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the European Management Journal (EMJ), a generalist, academic review covering all fields of management, owned by ESCP Europe and the University of Glasgow. Michael Haenlein, Professor of Marketing at ESCP Europe and Editor in Chief of EMJ, looks back over the journal creation and its history.

The EMJ aims to present the latest thinking and research on major management topics in form of articles that meet high academic quality standards, while still being accessible to non-specialists: “the European Management Journal has always been an outlet that aims to bridge the gap between academics and practitioners”.

"The first issue of the European Management Journal was published almost exactly thirty years ago, in the summer of 1982. This means that 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of EMJ and, more importantly, its transition from adolescence to adulthood. Such an evolution comes along with many consequences, as all of us know who have passed this hurdle already."

"In the past thirty years EMJ has made remarkable progress, especially under the guidance of my two predecessors as editor in chief, Hervé Laroche and Paul Stonham. Today, it holds a unique position in the market by being the only cross-discipline scholarly journal that publishes research on a broad range of management topics of relevance for managers, public policy makers and consumers within Europe. Different to most other academic outlets, EMJ is not domain specific, which allows it to have a broad and transversal perspective on a multitude of different management issues."
