The Academy of Management is proud to announce the sixth volume of the Academy of Management Annals. This exciting series follows one guiding principle: The advancement of knowledge is possible only by conducting a thorough examination of what is known and unknown in a given field. Such assessments can be accomplished through comprehensive, critical reviews of the literature, crafted by informed scholars who determine when a line of inquiry has gone astray, and how to steer the research back onto the proper path.

The mission of the Academy of Management Annals is to provide up-to-date, in-depth examinations of the latest advances in various management fields. Each yearly volume features critical and potentially provocative research reviews written by leading scholars exploring an assortment of research topics. Annals reviews summarize and/or challenge established assumptions and concepts, pinpoint problems and factual errors, inspire discussions, and illuminate possible avenues for further study. Research reviews published in the Annals are geared toward academic scholars in management and professionals in allied fields, such as sociology of organizations and organizational psychology.

Ultimately, academic scholars in management and allied fields will see the Annals as a valuable resource to turn to for comprehensive, up-to-date information, published in a single volume every year by the pre-eminent association for management research.
