“Our aim is to publish original research that is both accessible and offers new insights into the practice of management. We aim to share knowledge that challenges convention and shows a better way of doing business.”

David Vogel

California Management Review defines management broadly, with a particular focus on corporate strategy and innovation, the management of technology, and the social impact of business.

Our extensive catalog of reprints is used in university courses, executive programs, and management seminars around the world. All of our content is available across a variety of media and platforms, and is distributed in partnership with Harvard Business School Publishing, SAGE Business Publishing,, and EBSCO. During the past year, CMR's content has been accessed more than half a million times by EBSCO platform users. There were 179,000 downloads on the SAGE Journals platform, and 109,000 copies of CMR's content were distributed by Harvard Business School Publishing. Based on our single-year impact factor of 8.836, CMR is one of the most frequently cited management publications. We invite you to explore the ways in which the California Management Review can help you meet your academic and professional goals.

DEI Commitment

The California Management Review (CMR) is published at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, and our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in what we publish mirrors the broader organization we support. We see diversity in the publication of ideas as a source of strength — foundational for innovative and creative accomplishment. We see our gaps in diverse content as opportunities for growth. We know that closing these gaps is not only necessary for us to achieve our potential, it is essential to our public mission. As an outlet for new research and ideas, we aspire to leverage our unique Berkeley Haas culture to show a better way of doing business.

We question the status quo, challenging the convention of whose ideas have been historically excluded in business and higher education publications. By increasing access to opportunities to be heard and feel valued, we are expanding what the voice of leadership has historically looked like, globally. Confidence without attitude allows us to seek out diverse perspectives, using a comprehensive approach to data and evidence, while fostering collaboration and trust. As students always, we recognize that we will continually have more to learn about others’ lived experiences and group histories, but we endeavor to continue on this journey in order to be a more inclusive source of thought leadership. We acknowledge our positional power and leverage our influence to address barriers and drive change for positive impact.
