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.

International Journal of Public Policy

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : International Journal of Public Policy.

3201892961_d30554399d_o

From the InterScience website for the journal:

IJPP addresses public policy issues facing nation states and national/supranational organisations, including governments, and how these approach and solve common public policy problems. It highlights governance, accountability, creation of wealth/wellbeing, and implications policy choices have on nation states and citizens, acknowledging that public policy choice/execution is complex, has ramifications on the welfare of citizens, and that, despite national differences, the actions of nation states are constrained by policies determined by supranational bodies, some not directly accountable to any international body.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2005) to present.

Access International Journal of Public Policy via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.
