ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion of foundational issues in the field of management science, focusing on advances in management theory and research.

The importance of clarifying such interrelationships is emphasized, from the standpoint of editing scholarly papers on such topics for publication. Topics discussed include communication and psychology in management, economics, and behavioral finance.
