Scope and Policy

RAUSP publishes original empirical and theoretical research in the field of management in order to contribute to the development of the area. All empirical methods - including quantitative, qualitative, field, and laboratory methods - are accepted. To be published, the article should present both empirical and theoretical relevant contributions. The articles will be accepted after an analysis by the editors that make the first evaluation. In case of preliminary approval, the articles are sent to the reviewers.

 

SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ARTICLES

Scope
The articles may cover a wide range of topics and management practices in different industrial sectors, geographic areas and functional specialties.

Objective
RAUSP readers should be motivated to establish a discussion agenda within their organizations about the concepts presented in the Journal. To this end, the articles should provide unprecedented insights that help to enhance the experience of managers and researchers, increase knowledge about how organizations function, and improve understanding of how to deal with the growing management challenges. Articles can fulfill this main objective in four different ways: by offering new ideas and different approaches to management; by describing best practices and management techniques used in different organizations; by analyzing innovative solutions for practical management cases; and by communicating recent cutting-edge research in the management field.

Format
Articles for publication in RAUSP should be presented in a format that enhances their concept, using the following predetermined structure: presentation of the conceptual objective, development of the thought process, and conclusions. 
Lifecycle
Articles should be of lasting interest. They should not be perishable products, devoid of future value. Their ideas and concepts should be sound enough to continue to be of interest for a long time.

EVALUATION
The articles submitted for appreciation are evaluated by an Ad Hoc Body of Evaluators, using the double-blind review system, meaning that throughout the evaluation process, the Evaluators are unaware of who the author(s) is(are) and vice-versa.
