Aims & Scope
The North American Management Society [NAMS] is a scholarly organization that focuses on management scholars and practitioners, primarily in North America–the United States and Canada–but also from other nations in the global economy. Most members are from smaller educational institutions and from practitioners in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.
NAMS is an inclusive “group” of “management” scholars in learning and practicing organizations. The Society fosters the development and distribution of new knowledge in management. Our mission statement states that we are an inclusive group of management scholars and practitioners who foster the development and distribution of new knowledge in all fields of management. We value new knowledge that comes from practitioner innovations as well as formal and informal research activities in schools, colleges, and universities. We recognize that new knowledge in management occurs as the result of dialogues between individuals as well as experimentation in the field by scholars and practitioners; by studies in laboratories; and by observations of individuals, groups, and institutions.
In support of the NAMS mission, the Journal of the North American Management Society is a multidisciplinary, online journal of interest to scholars, professionals, students, and practitioners in a broad range of management thinking. The fields of study that JNAMS encompasses include human resources, general management, organizational behavior, ethics, leadership, entrepreneurship, global strategy, organization theory, nonprofit and public administration. JNAMS is committed to the development of theoretical and practical knowledge about management through the publication of theoretical and empirical articles, teaching cases and exercises, pedagogical research, book and literature reviews, and more.
