Hunt Valley, MD – The Academy of Management selected Dartmouth Journal Services and the Sheridan Technology Lab to develop a multi-journal app, scheduled to release in mid-July. Journal titles accessible in this app are the Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), Academy of Management Review (AMR), Academy of Management Learning & Education (AMLE), and Academy of Management Perspectives (AMP).
Branded as AOM Pubs, the app is available for both the iPhone and iPad. It offers complete access of full-text articles to AOM members. Non-members can access the abstracts, and will also be able to access special free content for a period of 90 days after the release.
The app permits users to download, view, save, and search full-text articles; even publish-ahead-of-print content. Users can access supplemental material, high resolution images, video, listen to podcasts and newsfeeds, and bookmark content. They may also receive instant alerts for new content, and read and share content through email, Facebook, and Twitter. User-configurable offline content caching – A Sheridan exclusive – offers access to full-text articles, figures, and tables anytime, anywhere, without a network connection.
Through its scholarly journals, The Academy of Management is committed to advancing theory, research, education, and practice in the field of management. AMR provides a forum to explicate theoretical insights and developments. Articles published in AMJ empirically examine theory-based knowledge. AMLE provides a forum to examine learning processes and management education. AMP features important issues concerning management and business.
“One of the Academy’s key mission statements is ‘to build a vibrant and supportive community of scholars by markedly expanding opportunities to connect and explore ideas.’ To that end we’ve been working very hard to deliver AOM’s journal content to our members in as many high-quality forms as possible. The app is one important piece of that puzzle. Researchers are busier than ever and our new mobile initiatives will allow readers to stay up-to-date with AOM’s content regardless of location,” said Adam Etkin, Director of Publishing.
Sheridan Full-Text Apps are the latest in a suite of mobile products developed and supported through The Sheridan Group companies. Others include Sheridan Mobile Alerts, Sheridan Mobile Editions, Sheridan Mobile ePrints, and Sheridan Print-to-Mobile QR Codes.
“I’m delighted that The Sheridan Group could provide the approximately 20,000 members of the Academy of Management with a new way to access the latest research, education, articles, and tools on management at the very point of content discovery, via our industry leading technology,” stated Andrew Fawcett, Chief Technology Officer at The Sheridan Group.
