Aims and Scope

The monthly published Budapest Management Review (ISSN 0133-0179) is one of the most significant journals in the field of business, management, and organizational studies in Hungary, which is published since 1970. It publishes papers that provide empirical findings or contribute to theory. It is a general management journal, which includes studies on different aspects of organizations: structure, processes, and performance, and equally on cultural, behavioral, and technological subjects. Multidisciplinary research is highly valued and papers that draw on the perspective and theoretical background of sociology, psychology, economics, political science, or communicational studies – apart from that of business, management and organization science are also appreciated. The journal publishes two issues a year in English, and nine in Hungarian, one of which is a double issue.

We accept research at different levels of analysis: including individuals, groups, organizations, and networks in which organizations are embedded. Budapest Management Review publishes both empirical and theoretical papers but requires methodological rigor in every genre. If a manuscript applies novel methodology, the author should make sure that the steps of the data collection and analysis are transparent and scientific.

We seek to receive manuscripts that

  • relate to our scope and the current scientific discourse in our journal;
  • build on findings recently published in international journals;
  • make an original contribution to scientific literature;
  • are methodologically accurate and well-grounded;
  • are relevant to both theory and practice.
