Chapter 23: Publishing in the top journals: the secrets for success

Michael A. Hitt


Having your research published in top scholarly journals is one of the crowning achievements in our profession. It is exciting and satisfying to have your work published in one of these journals with other high-quality scholarly research. Most of these top journals accept 5–10 percent of the manuscripts submitted. Therefore, they truly represent the crème de la crème of the research in the field. Publishing work in these top journals is challenging, given the large amount of competition for journal space and high standards enforced by these journals (evidenced by the low acceptance rates). Therefore, the publication process can also be frustrating at times. Yet, there are actions that we can take to increase the probability that our work will be published in these journals.
