JMG is devoted to the inquiry into the cognitive and relational foundations of governance and into the analysis and design of governance structures and their relations with management in the private as well as the public sector. Governance goes beyond 'corporate governance' and includes the modes of allocating decision control and reward rights within and between economic organization giving raise to a variety of forms of market industry and firm organization. This understanding of governance is both common and highly important to a number of disciplines and sub-disciplines in social science including institutional economics 'rational' sociology organization theory and cognitive sciences. JMG will be an arena of debate between those scientific networks working in a critical and micro-analytic perspective trying to explain rather than assume how knowledge and interests are formed and inform governance solutions . By management is meant the conscious steering and engineering of economic activities and of their regulation. Thus the activity of management is very much that of governing especially through the design and innovation of economic strategies and structures . Contributions from all the areas of business administration are welcome to the extent they contribute to these general issues. Among the kind of issues that are relevant to the governance-management nexus there are: the engineering of incentives and contracts the structuring of accountability and control the design of architectures for internal and interfirm coordination the selection of actors' strategies for managing various relations and the structuring of institutions that frame those choices for example through the study of industries within and across different countries. In addition to research papers conforming to the usual international academic standard the journal welcomes two other types of contributions. Under a section denominated Debates and viewpoints new ideas and views criticisms and debates thought-provoking and action-provoking contributions on actuality issues in the business administration community are proposed. A Research notes section is planned for stimulating submissions especially from younger scholars or for drawing attention towards interesting data and new phenomena. The journal is characterized by methodological pluralism . Any research strategy is admitted if effective for the issue at hand and rigorous with respect to the rules of the adopted methodology ñ be it laboratory or field experimentation survey research case study research or documental and economic statistics analysis. Co-authored papers by researchers and analysts from the academic and the managing communities are also welcome.
