For new scholars, or for practitioners interested in learning about strategic management, it can be difficult to know where to start. The following is a list of the key journals in strategy together with some thoughts on their particular strengths.
Strategic Management Journal – perhaps the premier journal within strategic management. This mainly uses statistical modelling to test hypotheses, although is open to other approaches.
Management Science – a very good journal, but one that covers many areas of management, and therefore can only devote a small number of articles to strategy papers.
Strategy Science – a new journal that combines the best of the above journals – and provides analytical approaches to strategy problems.
