About SciELO SA
SciELO SA is a searchable full-text, open-access database of peer-reviewed South African journals. Journals are selected for inclusion based on a set of criteria.
Journal focus & scope
The SAJBM publishes articles that have real significance for management theory and practice. The content of the journal falls into two categories: managerial theory and management practice:
- Management theory is devoted to reporting new methodological developments, whether analytical or philosophical. In general, papers should, in addition to developing a new theory, include some discussion of applications, either historical or potential. Both state-of-the-art surveys and papers discussing new developments are appropriate for this category.
- Management practice concerns the methodology involved in applying scientific knowledge. It focusses on the problems of developing and converting management theory to practice while considering behavioural and economic realities. Papers should reflect the mutual interest of managers and management scientists in the exercise of the management function. Appropriate papers may include examples of implementations that generalise experience rather than specific incidents and facts, and principles of model development and adaptation that underline successful application of particular aspects of management theory. The relevance of the paper to the professional manager should be highlighted as far as possible.
