Junior Management Science publishes the best Bachelor and Master theses in business and management sciences. Students can submit their thesis for free. After a first check by our department editors, the thesis will be scrutinised in a double-blind review process. Two experts in the field („Peers“) assess the paper independently. Both the thesis and the review results are anonymised, such that neither our reviewers nor the student know who their respective counterpart is („double-blind“).

We publish the best theses quarterly in our open-access journal. Through this, the papers can be accessed for free from all over the world and are citable as well. Our Advisory Editorial Board, comprised of over 50 professors from over 30 universities from five countries, guarantees the scientific quality of our review process and the published papers. Through the publication junior research is honoured, students get the opportunity to take part in the scientific discourse, and they make an important step in potentially becoming researchers themselves.

If you have written a…

  • Bachelor thesis, Master´s thesis, or equivalent
  • Concerning one of the topics listed below
  • In German or English

… you can submit your paper for review by us.

You only need to choose to which of the following subdisciplines of business and management studies your thesis belongs:

  • Banking and Finance
  • Business Taxation
  • Controlling
  • Business Ethics and Sustainability
  • External Accounting and Auditing
  • Human Resources and Leadership
  • Production Management and Logistics
  • Strategy and Organization
  • Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Business Informatics

As you can see, there certainly is a good fit for you! If you are unsure where to place the paper, you can also choose the category “Others”.

Your thesis has been marked and the mark is often an indicator of the quality of your thesis. Statistically, the higher your grade, the more likely you are to get published. So, if you received a good grade for your thesis, go ahead and submit it!

However, your mark can be affected by a variety of factors. In case the mark does not meet your expectations and you are convinced that your work contains exciting new insights, please submit your thesis, too.

We do not know your mark when reviewing your paper and will, hence, assess your thesis independently. Furthermore, your thesis is anonymised before it enters our review process – our reviewers do not know your name, institution, or any other personal information. JUMS, therefore, is your opportunity to get additional independent feedback on your thesis which you can use for future academic work. In short: No matter whether your thesis is published or not, submitting to JUMS and receiving valuable feedback is beneficial to you!

In principle, nothing speaks against you publishing your thesis. However, there are three things you should check beforehand:

  • You must not have explicitly granted the university or your supervisor the right to use your thesis for their own research or publish it themselves.
  • Your thesis must have received a mark already. If you submit your work before this, you might infringe your institutions’ right of examination.
  • If you wrote your thesis in cooperation with a company or if you are enrolled at a university of cooperative education, the regulations may differ from above. You should, therefore, check your training or study contract. If you are unsure, we recommend you to get in touch with your company or university.

Normally, you do not need to consult your supervisor. However, we encourage you to inform your supervisor, anyways. If your thesis passes the double-blind review process and is published, it is a time to celebrate and thank your professor for their supervision.

Submitting your thesis is easy and should not take more than a minute. Simply submit your thesis at www.jums.academy/submit and provide us with your contact details. It´s as simple as that!

If you should encounter any problems, please find detailed step-by-step instructions here.

To keep it simple for you, we do not require a specific format. You can upload your thesis in .pdf, .doc, .docx, .dot and .dotx format. If you prefer to upload several PDFs, we ask you to do it in one single submission process. Just add more files clicking “Select files”.

In short: after receiving your thesis, we anonymise your work and decide whether to publish your work or not.

It goes without saying that your work will not be used or passed on without your consent.

In detail the review process looks like this:

As your thesis has to go through several steps, the review process usually takes several months. Initially, your work will be anonymised by employees who have no influence on the assessment of your thesis.

Your thesis will then be forwarded to the respective department editors who decide whether the work will be labelled as a “desk-reject”. If your thesis successfully takes this hurdle, it matches the basic requirements of scientific theses (e.g. adequate content, completeness, form). Then comes the most important part: two reviewers who are experts in your field review your thesis and assess it according to standardized criteria. This is our so called double-blind review process. The result of the double-blind review can have three different outcomes:

  • Both reviewers agree that your thesis should be published. Congratulations, your work will be published in one of our next issues!
  • Only one of the two reviewers recommends to publish your thesis. Your thesis will only be published in exceptional cases.
  • If both reviewers reject your thesis, the decision is clear. Unfortunately, we will not consider your work any further.

As long as your work passes the first stage of desk-reject, you will receive independent feedback from recognized scientists – even if we end up not publishing your thesis. This gives you the opportunity to learn for your future academic endeavors!

Unfortunately, changes can only be made in very few cases. The adaptations may only concern formatting or linguistic deficiencies. Please write an email to submit@jums.academy, if this applies to your thesis. The content may not be edited after submission.

If your work passed our review process, we will send you the thesis in our design and ask you to check it before we publish it. To see how it will look like, please check out our current issue.
