University of California Press announces partnership to publish California Management Review
Berkeley, California—University of California Press Journals + Digital Publishing and the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley today announced their new partnership in publishing the business school’s flagship, peer-reviewed journal, California Management Review, beginning in November 2011.
UC Press and the Haas School’s partnership is an example of UC Berkeley’s Operational Excellence program. Operational Excellence seeks to improve the UC Berkeley’s operational effectiveness and reduce the costs of campus operations by pooling expertise and services so that the campus can direct the maximum level of resources to its core mission of teaching, research, and public service.
“UC Press offers extensive market reach and digital publishing expertise that will allow California Management Review to focus even more on its editorial excellence,” said Haas School Dean Rich Lyons. “It’s the best of both worlds.”
California Management Review—Connecting Research and Practice
California Management Review—a top-ranked management journal exemplifying the University's research mission by producing academic literature on all issues related to management in business—serves as an important bridge of communication between those who study management and those who practice it. California Management Review is currently published by the Haas School under long-time editor Professor David J. Vogel.
Examples of California Management Review’s notable issues include a special issue dedicated to Haas School Professor Emeritus Oliver Williamson, whose work on transaction cost economics earned him the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 2009.
Published quarterly, California Management Review emphasizes three areas of critical importance to both practicing managers and academic researchers: strategy and organization, global competition and competitiveness, and business and public policy. Its contributors include management consultants, policy makers, and senior executives as well as business school faculty from across the nation and abroad.
Beginning in November 2011, California Management Review will be available both in print and online through UC Press on JSTOR’s innovative online hosting platform.
