Academy of Management Annals (Annals) is the highest ranked peer-reviewed journal in the categories of management and business. Articles submitted to Annals review, synthesize, interpret, and critique the literature on management-related topics. Annals reviews not only summarize recent literature, but feature critical and potentially provocative positions that are grounded in the review.
