Welcome to the CMI Management Articles of the Year

This initiative encourages and recognises relevant, accessible academic writing and by bringing it to the attention of practising managers ensures that management knowledge from academics reaches a wider audience. Our aim is to recognise and celebrate the best management articles from UK business schools.

As a CMI member you are well-placed to judge what is of practical value. We are offering you the opportunity to read, rate and comment on the articles online via CMI’s portal.  

CMI members can read, rate and review the latest submissions.  Access using the Management Articles link to the right (you'll need to be logged in for the link to appear).

Our final call for reviews closes on 23rd october 2015.

A selection of the highest rated articles will be added to CMI’s collection of the Management Articles of the Year that will made available online via CMI’s website and the British Library’s Management & Business Studies Portal.
