Chinese Management Insights is a Chinese-English bilingual publication that converts leading academic research on China-related topics into summaries that can be easily read and used by managers. These summaries exclude most of the academic theory, research methodology and literature references that are in the original full papers, and focus on what is directly useful to managers. Most of the papers come from Management and Organization Review (MOR), published by the International Association for Chinese Management Research (IACMR) with selected China-related articles from other leading journals. All the summaries have been approved by the authors of the original articles.
