Focus and Scope

The aim of Intangible Capital is to publish theoretical and empirical articles that contribute to contrast, extend and build theories that contribute to advance our understanding of phenomena related with management, and the management of intangibles, in organizations, from the perspectives of strategic management, human resource management, psychology, education, IT, supply chain management and accounting. The scientific research in management is grounded on theories developed from perspectives taken from a diversity of social sciences. Intangible Capital is open to publish articles that, from sociology, psychology, economics and industrial organization contribute to the scientific development of management and organizational science. Intangible Capital publishes scholar articles that contribute to contrast existing theories, or to build new theoretical approaches. The contributions can adopt confirmatory (quantitative) or explanatory (mainly qualitative) methodological approaches. Theoretical essays that enhance the building or extension of theoretical approaches are also welcome. Intangible Capital selects the articles to be published with a double bind, peer review system, following the practices of good scholarly journals. Intangible Capital is published biannual exclusively on-line, and following an open access policy. On-line publication allows to reduce publishing costs, and to make more agile the process of reviewing and edition. Intangible Capital defends that open access publishing fosters the advance of scientific knowledge, making it available to everyone. Intangible Capital publishes articles in English, Spanish and Catalan.

Peer Review Process

Intangible Capital selects its articles following a double blind, peer review process. Once the editorial team has checked that the contribution follows the formatting and content author guidelines, it is sent to two anonymous reviewers with expertise in the contribution's field. Grounded on reviewer's recommendations, the editor will communicate the results of the evaluation to the corresponding author. The editor will communicate the overall result of the evaluation (rejected, accepted or accepted with modifications), including the reviewer's comments. If the article has been accepted with modifications, authors should send back to the journal a new version of the article, which will be reviewed again by the same team of reviewers. If authors wish, they can attach a letter to the editor, which should indicate the modifications made in the article following the editor's and reviewer's comments. If the authors decide not to follow a particular reviewer's instruction, they can expose in the same letter their reasons for not doing so.


Publication Frequency

Intangible capital is published twice a year. The two issues of one year are the twonumbers of one volumen. Occasionally, Intangible Capital can publish special issues about specific research themes. These special issues can have specific editors. For these special issues, specific calls for papers will be announced.

Dynamic Journal Issue

Intangible Capital aims to facilitate and enhance research and professional career of our authors, implementing a new model of Dynamic Journal Issue designed to reduce the time of publishing those articles that meet the standards of the journal.


Through this system, and always faithful to Open Access policy, Intangible Capital will immediately publish accepted articles in our website, creating a new model of Dynamic Journal Issue, always open to new contributions, and skipping the usual waiting times in traditional publication systems. Thus, authors with accepted contributions will promptly see their articles being part of the current Dynamic Journal Issue of Intangible Capital. This system accelerates the impact of authors' contribution and also brings the possibility of referencing the article in future research as soon as it is accepted by our reviewers. Throughout this system we aim to promote the spread of knowledge, making our accepted and validated contributions available even before the issue closing.


Publication Ethics

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is a very crucial task in disseminating knowledge and contributes for the scientific development. As a peer-reviewed journal, the rigor of scientific publication is expected to be observed in the course of evaluating papers that are submitted. Therefore, ethical behavior is expected for all parties involved during the publishing process: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer and the publisher.
