Professor Ilídio Barreto has just started his term (2020 – 2022) on the Editorial Review Board of the Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), which is considered by many scholars as the most impactful scientific publication in theory testing in the Management field over the last two decades. It is the first time a Portuguese scholar occupies such a position.
“It is an honor and a privilege to sit on this Board”, said Professor Barreto. And he added: “This and other recent achievements made by Catolica Lisbon illustrate the current recognition of the quality of our School by the international academic community. It is the result of very hard work guided by a clear vision and supported by our passion for research and teaching. It is safe to say that the School embraced a remarkable evolution over the years”.
Professor Barreto also serves, for several years, on the editorial boards of two other top scientific publications in Management, the Journal of Business Venturing and the Journal of Management Studies. One of his works, on dynamic capabilities, has been among the most cited scientific articles published worldwide since 2010 in the Strategy domain, according to the Google Scholar data. In 2013, he won the prestigious JMS Best Paper Award with his work “Solving the entrepreneurial puzzle”.
