ABSTRACT
The article discusses the constructions and contributions of implications for practice (IFP) sections of management research manuscripts. Research was conducted on five management-related academic journals between the dates of 1992-1993 and 2003-2007. The authors believe that it is beneficial for management researchers to place IFP sections in research papers. Suggestions are provided on how researchers can enhance the usefulness of IFP sections. The authors assert that scholars should remember that researchers are not the only people who read academic articles.
