The RAUSP Management Journal is a quarterly publication dedicated to disseminating scientific work that contributes to the advancement of management theory and practice, a mission it has been fulfilling without interruption for more than 40 years.

The work it publishes primarily serves the academic community, but should also contribute to the advancement of management practice.

The Journal of Administration publishes original works by Brazilian and foreign authors selected on the basis of relevance, originality and quality, through a double blind review process.


The Rausp Management Journal, as a generalist journal, publishes articles in various thematic areas of Administration, including: Corporate Governance; Entrepreneurship; Finance and Accounting; Human Resources; Information Systems Management; International Management; Management Education and Research; Marketing;  Operations and Supply Chain Management;     Organization and Management Theory and History; Public and Non-Profit Management; Research Methods; Strategy and Business Economics; Sustainability Management and Corporate Social Responsibility; Technology and Innovation Management.

Occasionally, papers on other themes may be evaluated for publication if they are considered to be of interest to the journal’s readership.

Papers can be developed according to multiple perspectives and approaches, through both testing and empirical research, which can be based on different theoretical perspectives, approaches, methods and techniques.

To facilitate the access of the international community of readers and authors to its content and research through indexing systems, RAUSP publishes all articles in English.


It is important that articles submitted for review and possible publication in RAUSP be original and unpublished, nationally or internationally, nor under evaluation in any other journal.

Earlier versions of the work may, however, have been presented at conferences or published through internal “working papers” of authors’ home institutions.


Papers should address a current, relevant topic. Results should seek a level of generalization and temporal validity that will encourage researchers and practitioners to use them for a longer period of time.
