About the Journal

Estudios de Administración [ISSN: 0717-0653, e-ISSN: 0719-0816] is a double-blind peer-reviewed business Journal that has been published and financed on a semester basis by the Business Department of the University of Chile since 1994, created to provide an academic forum for Chilean and Latin American business academic community. Estudios de Administración publishes empirical research papers, methodological papers, systematic literature reviews, conceptual papers, case studies, and connection to practice articles in all business disciplines in both English and Spanish. Regardless of the type, all manuscripts will undergo a double-blind peer review process as a requirement for publication, if accepted.

Original manuscripts not previously published elsewhere, addressing matters of Strategy, Finance, Marketing, Accounting, Operations, Innovation, Management and Development of Human Resources, Organizational Change, Information Systems, Supply Chain, Entrepreneurship and Decision-Making, among other topics, relevant for Latin American business are the main focus of publication.


We target a readership of Ibero-American and world scholars, graduate students, and business executives looking for new and solid knowledge in the field. We encourage authors and researchers from the academic community to present manuscripts for peer review in any of the five categories:

  • Empirical research work: Results of original research projects with empirical data analysis (qualitative, quantitative and/or mixed) associated with current literature, and research replicas with consistent or non-consistent results.
  • Methods, methodological approaches and measuring instruments: Manuscripts presenting the use of different methodologies and the application of models in different contexts, as well as studies that validate measurement instruments, bibliometrics, meta-analysis, or verifications of experimental procedures, which can be replicated are welcomed.
  • Literature reviews: Contemporary articles that conceptually and theoretically synthesize, integrate or advance different scopes in business administration disciplines, particularly in Latin America and emerging countries.
  • Teaching cases: Research articles based on real business situations, designed to instruct students in the faculties of administration and business, providing organizational experiences subject to reality, which allow the application of theoretical propositions and combine them with practical simulations and decision making.
  • Connection to practice: Research studies that respond to the growing need for a greater focus on how business management and administration function, or on the way in which practitioners carry out their work in organizational practice. Research approaches such as Strategy-as-Practice (SAP), Marketing-as-Practice (MAP), Innovation-as-Practice (IAP), Entrepreneurship-as-Practice (EAP), etc. are welcome.

In all cases, contributions are double-blind reviewed, and are judged by their merit, rigor, relevance and potential impact on the literature in the region and emerging markets.
