The journal aims to publish research in the field of service management that not only makes a theoretical contribution to the service literature, but also appeals to practitioners. Recognizing the importance of the service sector all over the globe, the journal encourages submissions from around the world. MSQ gives prominence to research based on real world data, be it quantitative or qualitative. The journal also welcomes the submission of conceptual papers that make a substantive theoretical and/or methodological contribution to the scholarly literature in service management. MSQ publishes double-blind reviewed papers and encourages submissions from both academics and practitioners.
Changing climates in the economy, social structures, and political as well as technological fields are creating sea-changes in the philosophy, aims and structure of many businesses. These changes are particularly relevant to the service sector, as public demand for high standards increases, and organizations fight for both market share and public credibility. The journal specifically addresses solutions to these challenges from a global and multi-cultural perspective.
To the readership, the journal offers latest service management research in a style appealing to both academic and practitioner audiences. To the contributors, the journal offers a short turnaround time that enables early publication of their research.
