Greetings! We to want to bring to your attention the upcoming launch of a new journal, Management and Business Review (MBR), for which the three of us – Wally Hopp, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan; Christopher Ittner, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania; and Kalyan Singhal, Merrick School of Business, University of Baltimore – are editors-in-chief. The goal of MBR is to bridge management practice, education, and research and thereby enhance all three. Visit our website at www.mbrjournal.com and see the attached plan and call for papers.
In contrast to the Harvard Business Review, which is published by a single school, MBR is the result of a grassroots initiative with a wide participation by many schools and companies. In a story, Forbes magazine described this initiative and some of the innovative features of MBR . Link to the Forbes story:
The same story also appeared in Poets and Quants with subheadings:

We will publish MBR's first two issues in August and November this year. We will distribute their complimentary digital copies to millions of readers. We will share these issues with you so you can share them with anyone you like.
You can register yourself and your friends and colleagues on www.mbrjournal.com to ensure that they receive the complimentary digital copies. If you have too many email addresses to register manually, you can send them to Kalyan Singhal at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will register them.
Next month, we will send an e-mail to the community describing how MBR can help every business school to enhance its brand and strengthen its relationships with alumni and the business community.MBR has 222 advisers, including editors of prominent research journals and 14 professors from Wharton; 13 from Harvard; eight from Carnegie Mellon; seven each from Dartmouth, MIT, and Stanford; six from North Carolina; five from Michigan and UCLA; four each from Columbia, Northwestern, and NYU; three each from Chicago, Duke, Illinois, INSEAD, Maryland, Minnesota, Singapore Management University, University of Southern California, and Thunderbird; and two each from Case Western Reserve, University of California at Berkeley, Cornell, George Mason, Georgia State, Imperial College, London Business School, National University of Singapore, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Rochester, Syracuse, Temple, University of Texas at Austin, Tufts, Virginia, and Yale.
