JMI´s raison d´être.
JMI´s raison d´être (French for reason to exist, also known as mission), is to contribute to the generation and diffusion of original knowledge by being at the forefront of academic debates in the fields of Organization Studies, Management, and the social sciences in general.

This is shorthand for our core idea: we want to publish manuscripts that make an impact in the reader and the community.
