Harvard Business Review

The most popular journal in 2022 by a long shot was Harvard Business Review. The journal is published by Harvard Business School Publishing and is a leading voice within the field of management. The ambition is to provide the business community with new insights, best practices, etc. to help leaders lead themselves and their organizations more effectively. As the projected audience is not necessarily researchers, HBR articles are easy to read and not overly academic. HBR is not a peer-reviewed journal.
Fun fact: Harvard Business Review was first launched in 1922, which coincides with the inauguration of CBS Library in that same year.
