Who Are We?

A globally reputed academic business journal, California Management Review serves as a vehicle of communication between those who study management and those who practice it. We publish research-based articles that also address issues of current concern to managers.

CMR has recently featured articles on Open Innovation, Corporate Strategy, Social Issues in Management, Leadership and Human Resources Management, Intellectual Property Management, and Hybrid Organizations.

Our extensive catalog of reprints is used in university courses, executive programs, conferences, and management seminars around the world. All of our content is available across a variety of media and platforms, and is distributed worldwide. CMR boasts a five-year impact factor of 3.41, making it a frequently cited management publication.

What is our Freelance Blogging Program?

The freelance blogging program is intended to expand CMR’s audience, scope, and reach by inviting outside writers to contribute to our blog. Our strategy focuses on using our blog as a critical point of connection between our social medial channels and our formal journal content. The three objectives of the blogging initiative are: (1) increase content output, (2) raise brand awareness, and (3) develop audience engagement and relations. Our contributors will assist CMR’s editorial and marketing team in producing quality and interesting posts to publish on our blog, which will, in turn, drive traffic and engagement across all platforms. In addition to helping create posts, contributors can help publicize their posts through their own various social media accounts by liking, sharing, posting, or inviting people to read and react to them.

Pieces will be posted on CMR’s website and sent out on our connected social media channels. CMR's blogging team is made up of: the online media editor, the social media manager, and editorial assistants, who will supervise the research, writing, and publication of the blog posts submitted by contributors.

What Are the Benefits?

Besides compensating you per post, we offer several perks to encourage you to participate:

  1. Work from home: All editorial feedback is delivered via email, or if necessary, phone.
  2. Low commitment: Work according to your own schedule. There is no minimum number of posts we require.
  3. Access to an enormous professional network: As a globally ranked business publication journal, we have a network of thousands of business professors, researchers, and managers around the world. Most posts will be publicized on our website and through our social media platforms where we have thousands of people following us. However, select posts that fit the standard and professionalism of our journal will be released to our email network of thousands of professionals.
  4. Access to past material: You may request to read any of the material published in our journal or related Berkeley Haas Case Series.
  5. Flexibility: While we will provide you the scope of your blog post, you have the power and choice to decide how to research and approach the topic, thus you get to pursue your interests.
