Publishing in top-tier journals is a key performance indicator for promotion and tenure at most if not all research universities around the world. In the field of Management and Organizational Behavior, top journals included Administrative Science Quarterly and Academy of Management Journal, etc. Getting published in these premier journals is often a challenge for many junior scholars and doctoral students. In this talk, I will share my personal experiences in and advice for publishing in these and other top journals in our field.
