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 publishes three regular issues per year 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

The Editors-in-Chief will perform an initial appraisal of each submitted manuscript based on its fit with the focus and scope of the journal. If the submitted manuscript complies with these criteria, the Editors-in-Chief perform a second appraisal of the manuscript based on the scientific merit and validity of the article and its methodology, the relevance of the article, the interest of the topic to the reader, and the presentation and understandability of the article itself.

If the submitted manuscript is suitable to be sent to a peer review, the submitted manuscript is reviewed by two members of the Reviewer Board (external evaluators) of the journal who don’t have potential conflicts of interests. If Editors-in-Chief don’t find a specific reviewer for the submitted manuscript, they will search other specialist of the topic of equal repute and based on his/her expertise and standing in his/her field. The peer-review process is double blinded.

The reviewers will return their recommendations and reports to the Editors-in-Chief, providing general comments to the editor and both general and specific comments to the author(s). Constructive comments that might help the authors improve their work are passed on anonymously (even if editor do not accept the submitted manuscript). After that, editor assesses them collectively, and then makes a decision, either on his or her own or in consultation with other editors on whether to reject the manuscript. The final decision on acceptability for publication lies with the Editors-in-Chief.

The Editors-in-Chief will communicate the overall result of the evaluation (rejected, accepted or accepted with modifications), including the reviewer's comments. Revised manuscripts may be subject to further peer review if appropriate.
