Business and Management

Editor in Chief | Editorial Board | Volume Editors | Digital Collections


Research reviews in business and management cover a wide range of issues, reflecting the diversity of the field and the importance of the disciplines in everyday life. One focus is on how firms compete in markets to provide goods and services to specific customer segments, and another is how managers in companies create strategies, organize resources, and lead people. The emphasis of some research is on the internal operations of a company, including leadership, human resource management, organizational behavior, operations and information management, and accounting. Other streams of inquiry concentrate on firms’ interaction with the environment—whether defined as consisting of other firms, government, society generally, or natural—in areas such as international business, marketing, corporate strategy, and ethics. Oxford Handbooks Online integrates the prestigious print program and includes specially commissioned essays from leading figures that provide critical examinations of the progress and direction of research on important concepts and issues.

Business and management research is pluralistic and is both informed by and informs other social sciences, including economics, psychology, political science, sociology, and anthropology. From cognition to culture, from incentives to motivation, and from institutions to individuals, the fields encompass a variety of human behavior. Review essays reflect this diversity and have been selected to provide authoritative overviews of research on important topics and topical issues.


Editor in Chief

Michael Hitt is currently a University Distinguished Professor at Texas A&M University and holds the Joe B. Foster Chair in Business Leadership. Michael received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado. He is a former President of both the Academy of Management and of the Strategic Management Society and a member of the Academy of Management Journals’ Hall of Fame. He has coauthored or co-edited 26 books and authored or coauthored many journal articles. A recent article in the Journal of Management listed him as one of the ten most cited authors in management over a 25-year period. The Times Higher Education in 2010 listed him among the top scholars in economics, finance and management based on the number of highly cited articles he has authored. A recent article in the Academy of Management Perspectives lists him as one of the top two management scholars in terms of the combined impact of his work both inside (i.e., citations in scholarly journals) and outside of academia. He has served on the editorial review boards of multiple journals and is a former editor of the Academy of Management Journal and a former co-editor of the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal. He received the 1996 Award for Outstanding Academic Contributions to Competitiveness and the 1999 Award for Outstanding Intellectual Contributions to Competitiveness Research from the American Society for Competitiveness. He is a Fellow in the Academy of Management and in the Strategic Management Society, a Research Fellow in the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers and received an honorary doctorate from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. He received awards for the best article published in the Academy of Management Executive (1999), Academy of Management Journal (2000), and the Journal of Management (2006). In 2001, he received the Irwin Outstanding Educator Award and the Distinguished Service Award from the Academy of Management. In 2004, Dr. Hitt was awarded the Best Paper Prize by the Strategic Management Society. In 2006, he received the Falcone Distinguished Entrepreneurship Scholar Award from Syracuse University.

OUP: In the range of academic publications, where does Oxford Handbooks Online: Scholarly Research Reviews fit in?

Hitt: This is an exciting new development in the publishing world. As an author and editor, I have participated in the three primary avenues for disseminating new scholarly work: scholarly journals, authored books, and edited books. Each has many positive attributes, and each has some specific limitations. Oxford Handbooks Online overcomes many of these limitations.

OUP: How so?

Hitt: For the reader, Oxford Handbooks Online's scholarly essays provide reliable reviews of and reflections on important scholarly topics, both key concepts and issues and new and exciting developments. These works are longer and richer than most journal articles while being more concise and focused than books. For the author, such essays provide an excellent opportunity to contribute insight in a way that has proven to be widely recognized and cited.

OUP: What aspect of this project enticed you to become so involved?

Hitt: Oxford Handbooks Online will be focused on developing and publishing high quality and rigorous scholarly research which fits very well with my own values. I have a great deal of respect for Oxford University Press for publication of the highest quality scholarly work. Taking on a leadership role in the editorial team provides me the opportunity to contribute to my scholarly field.
