Manuscript and Reference Style.
The language of the international journal of management is English. 12-point type in one of the standard fonts: Times, Helvetica, or Courier is preferred. Please double-line space your manuscript. Manuscripts must conform to the style of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6thEdition (http://www.apastyle.org/manual/whats-new.aspx).
Tables must appear on separate pages after the reference list, and must not be incorporated into the main text. Figures should be uploaded as separate figure files. Manuscripts submitted to JPRSM should not normally be more than 40 pages in length (including references, tables and figures). Manuscripts up to 50 pages will be considered, but authors should be aware that reviewers will expect to see a contribution commensurate with the extra page length. Authors considering submitting manuscripts of more than 50 pages should discuss with the Editor-in-Chief before submitting.
All references must be complete and accurate. Where possible the DOI for the reference should be included at the end of the reference. The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is an identification system for intellectual property in the digital environment. Developed by the International DOI Foundation on behalf of the publishing industry, its goals are to provide a framework for managing intellectual content, to link customers with publishers, to facilitate electronic commerce and to enable automated copyright management. Online citations should include date of retrieval. If necessary, cite unpublished or personal work in the text but do not include it in the reference list. References should be listed in the following style:
During the submission process, in the places provided, you must:
Enter the full title, short title of up to 70 characters and the names and affiliations of all authors. Give the full address, including email, telephone and fax numbers, of the corresponding author who is to check the proofs prior to publication.
Enter an abstractof up to 200 words for all articles.
Include up to five keywords that describe your paper for indexing purposes.
Sometimes, the setting in which organizational research is conducted is unique in some way or consist of qualities that bear on the work. This would be the case, for example, if data are collected at a time in which major events occurred in the organization or in a foreign setting whose context or practices may be unfamiliar to most readers. On such occasions, authors should provide suitable descriptions of these settings so as to put their findings and their interpretation in an appropriate perspective for readers. As required, brief descriptions that do not disrupt the flow of major ideas should be inserted into the body of articles (e.g., in a subsection of the “Method” section entitled, “Research Context”). Whenever detailed or protracted descriptions are called for, however, these should be included in an appendix that follows the references. Please note that the editors or reviewers may request such information as they deem useful.
Upload each figure as a separate file in either .tiff or .esp. format, with the figure number and the top of the figure indicated. Compound figures e.g. 1a, 1b, 1c should be uploaded as a single figure appearing in one file. Tints (grey shadings) are unacceptable. Lettering must be of a reasonable size that would be clearly legible upon reduction, and consistent within each figure and set of figures. Where a key to symbols is required, please include this in the artwork itself, not in the figure legend. All illustrations must be supplied at the correct resolution:
Black and white and colour photos – 300 dpi
Graphs, drawings, etc. – 800 dpi preferred; 600 dpi minimum
Combinations of photos and drawings (black and white and color) – 500 dpi
Tables should be part of the main document and should be inserted after the references. If a table is created as an excel spreadsheet, the file should be uploaded separately.
The cost of printing color illustrations in the journal will be charged to the author at a cost of approximately £700 per page. If color illustrations are supplied electronically in either.tiff or .eps formats, they may be used in the .pdf (Portable Document File) of the article at no cost to the author, even if this illustration was printed in black and white in the journal. In this case, the color pdf file will appear on the Wiley Online Library site.
Plagiarism: We use multiple softwares to check plagiarism of each article to ensure the originality of the research.

Proofs. For accepted manuscripts the publisher will supply proofs to the corresponding author prior to publication. This individual is required to correct errors that may have been introduced during the production process. No substantive changes may be made at this stage. Prompt return of the corrected proofs, preferably within two days of receipt, will minimize the risk of the paper being held over to a later issue. Authors must take care to ensure all referencing is accurate as corrections cannot be made after this proofing stage is complete.
