Junior Management Science (JUMS)

Around 100,000 theses are written in business administration every year, very few of which are made available to the scientific community. In the online journal JUMS, these can be submitted for publication free of charge. The anonymous review process offers students the opportunity to compare their performance across universities. The best evaluated papers are published quarterly and are available on an open-access basis.
