CMI: Call for Articles and Interview Proposals

Call for Nomination of China content articles and CEO interview proposals

Chinese Management Insights (CMI), launched in October 2011 by the International Association for Chinese Management Research (IACMR), is a Chinese-English bilingual publication that converts leading academic research on China-related topics into summaries that can be easily read and used by managers. These summaries exclude most of the academic theory, research methodology and literature references that are in the original full papers, and focus on what is directly useful to managers. All summaries have the approval of the authors of the original articles. The new articles are released each month, with a print issue every four months. In addition, CMI also publishes original interview of leading CEOs who have demonstrated success with their unique management perspectives. Please browse: for published summaries and interview articles.
