Management Review Quarterly (MRQ) is a double-blind, peer-reviewed academic journal that specializes in systematic narrative literature reviews, bibliographic studies, meta-analyses, and replication studies. The journal’s scope covers all fields of business and management research including both new and established ones.
MRQ’s aim is to summarize and categorize knowledge in management and business research, aggregate important empirical research findings, and challenge existing knowledge through rigorous replication studies. The journal’s goal is to contribute to the empirical grounding of business and management studies as academic disciplines and is of high interest not only for academic readers but also for practitioners interested in evidence-based management and/or evidence-based policy making.
MRQ was founded in 1951 at the Hochschule für Welthandel in Vienna, Austria (now WU Vienna University of Economics and Business) as a German language journal under the title "Journal für Betriebswirtschaft (JfB)". This makes MRQ one of the oldest research based business and management journals internationally.
