Research reviews in business and management cover a wide range of issues, reflecting the diversity of the field and the importance of the disciplines in everyday life. One focus is on how firms compete in markets to provide goods and services to specific customer segments, and another is how managers in companies create strategies, organize resources, and lead people. The emphasis of some research is on the internal operations of a company, including leadership, human resource management, organizational behavior, operations and information management, and accounting. Other streams of inquiry concentrate on firms’ interaction with the environment—whether defined as consisting of other firms, government, society generally, or natural—in areas such as international business, marketing, corporate strategy, and ethics. Oxford Handbooks Online integrates the prestigious print program and includes specially commissioned essays from leading figures that provide critical examinations of the progress and direction of research on important concepts and issues.
Business and management research is pluralistic and is both informed by and informs other social sciences, including economics, psychology, political science, sociology, and anthropology. From cognition to culture, from incentives to motivation, and from institutions to individuals, the fields encompass a variety of human behavior. Review essays reflect this diversity and have been selected to provide authoritative overviews of research on important topics and topical issues.
