Beware of Forged Acceptance Letters
The Strategic Management Journal does not charge an acceptance fee for papers. Any letter that appears to be from a Co-Editor of an SMS journal promising a manuscript's acceptance in exchange for money has been forged. All legitimate correspondence related to the review and acceptance of the paper will reference the manuscript number assigned by the submission system, ScholarOne.
