Alumni & Faculty Pen Editorial for Inaugural EMR Journal
Posted 7.12.17A WSOM editorial article spearheads the inaugural issue of Engaged Management ReView (EMR), an online, open-access journal of problem-driven management research serving the global executive doctoral education community.
An editorial co-authored by Adrian Wolfberg, a 2014 PhD alumni of the Doctor of Management programs and currently a visiting faculty member at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, PA, and Kalle Lyytinen, Faculty Director of the Doctor of Management programs, framed the first issue (June 2017) of the new Engaged Management ReView online journal of practitioner scholarship research.
The editorial is titled “Narrowing the Dissemination Gap: Genres for Practitioner Scholarship,” and discusses the nature and aims of practitioner-scholar knowledge production, and how and why this knowledge—and the identity of the practitioner-scholar—is distinct from both practitioner-only knowledge and scholarly-only knowledge. The purpose of the editorial is to help executive doctoral program students and alumni, as well as faculty from these programs within the Executive DBA Council (EDBAC) and other similar executive doctoral programs around the world, overcome the tendency to be exclusively oriented to the scholarly perspective at the expense of the practitioner’s. The editorial clarifies why practitioner-scholar perspectives needs its own dissemination venue—the Engaged Management ReView¬—to better integrate practitioner and scholarly roles. The co-authors hope that their editorial will assist doctoral students and alumni, and faculty in the preparation and review of submissions to Engaged Management ReView (EMR).
