Nonprofit Management and Leadership
A Journal on Management, Governance, Leadership, and Policy of Nonprofit Organizations for Practitioners and Scholars
Contributions are sought from interested researchers and practitioners. Submitted papers should be based on original research and on theory of organizations and management, and should be written in a jargon-free, nontechnical style accessible to managers, trustees, and other leaders of nonprofit and voluntary organizations and to academic researchers and teachers from a variety of disciplines and professions. Papers should focus on some aspect of nonprofit organization management, governance, or leadership, and may include reports on research, literature reviews, case studies, and theoretical and analytical essays. Papers on governance, management of human resources, resource development and financial management, strategy and management of change, and organizational effectiveness are especially encouraged. Papers should be up to 5,000 words long (not including abstract, references list, and any tables or figures) and double-spaced. A detailed style guide is available on request.
Papers for the journal’s occasional “From the Field” section can be based primarily on experience rather than on formal research design, and often are written by practitioners. Case studies of strategic or other interest to nonprofit researchers and practitioners can also be submitted for consideration. Letters critiquing or commenting on previously published articles are welcome.
Papers submitted to Nonprofit Management and Leadership are subject to rigorous peer review. Researchers and practitioners willing to review manuscripts should send a letter of interest and a current copy of their curriculum vitae to the managing editor at the e-mail address provided below.
Nonprofit Management and Leadership seeks to reflect the international growth and diversity of management, leadership, and third-sector issues in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa. Manuscripts on topics of interest to an international audience of NGO management and leadership researchers and practitioners are invited from authors residing outside North America. An extensive panel of non-U.S. reviewers and associate editors is available. Submissions originating outside the United States are reviewed by experts familiar with the topic and region.

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically using Manuscript Central, the journal’s Web-based submission and review site: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/nml.
