Q: Do I need a member registration to read an article published in the Academy of Management Journal?

Detailed Question -

Should I need to make a registration as a member when downloading an article from Academy of Management Journal? I want to know if I can read an article without a member registration.

1 Answer to this question

The Academy of Management Journal (AMJ) seems to follow the traditional subscription model of publishing where the reader pays to read articles. However, you need not be a member to be able to download/read an article from the journal. There is an option for non-members to purchase access to individual articles. To quote from the AMJ website:

Non-members of the Academy of Management can purchase access to individual publication articles. Browse through the full archive of online content from http://journals.aom.org/search and select the article you want access to. When you are prompted to sign in, select the "Purchase Short Term Access" option and proceed to follow the instructions. 

A couple of articles that I tried to access were priced at 25USD for 3 days.
