At a time when business leaders are faced with new levels of diverse and complex challenges that they need to solve, this will serve as a great learning resource from an impeccable roster of contributors.

CEOs are expected to lead in entirely new ways, from ending systemic racism to providing solutions to COVID‐affected communities. MBR delivers invaluable counsel and practical ideas, enabling CEOs to earn the trust of stakeholders who need business to fill the void left by government.

MBR made a scintillating promise to the business and academic community ‐‐ and you have delivered in spades! The MBR layout and design is eye‐catching and elegant, and most important, the articles in the inaugural issue, individually and collectively, are a unique and powerful blend of applied thought‐leadership and serious scholarship.

A new first‐class journal linking management research and practice was long overdue. MBR is a solid and credible project led by an outstanding editorial team that will narrow the rigor‐relevance gap.

I am happy to hear about the launch of the new Management and Business Review journal. The articles in its first two issues sound intriguing. I hope to send my new articles to MBR on the chance that they get included.

I have followed the efforts led by Professor Kalyan Singhal to develop a new management journal, Management and Business Review, to bring a global perspective to cutting‐edge research by faculty at the roughly 13,000 business schools worldwide. Kalyan is a spirited and determined entrepreneur who has built a strong team and drawn support from a wonderful array of business schools. I appreciate the value of increasing our publication opportunities beyond the Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review, and California Management Review. I expect that one way that this new journal will distinguish itself is by focused inquiry into top global issues facing business and society.

Most academic management disciplines are primarily for professionals. Their first role is to help managers make more informed and insightful decisions based on good science. And yet most of our best journals focus on the science, not its application. Academics and managers alike should welcome Management and Business Review as a critical bridge in using our best knowledge to make decisions that lead to a better management and community environment.

John R. Roberts, London Business School
and University of New South Wales

The world is in dire need of better‐managed organizations. MBR delivers crisp, actionable managerial insights from a global network of experts and thought‐leaders.

The launch of Management and Business Review (MBR), which is devoted to engaging articles that highlight recent research and its implications for burning management challenges of today and the future, is an important addition to the world of credible references and insights. MBR’s creation was a collaborative effort with a wide range of participant schools and companies, and as such promises to be broader in editorial scope than well‐known journals in its class.
