The PAOM e-Journal is an online and open-access peer-reviewed journal that targets a twice-a-year release. As a not-for-profit publication, it does not charge readers access fees nor does it charge authors publication fees. It is supported by the funds generated by PAOM from its membership fees.

The PAOM e-Journal, which recognizes the need for stronger management scholarship in the country, provides opportunities to faculty members or academic staff (especially early-career academics), doctoral students, and other graduate students to have their works reviewed and published. These works come mainly from the proceedings of the annual National Business and Management Conference, which tackles a different theme every year. The themes address relevant issues in the Philippine business and management landscape.

As management scholarship is the main thrust of the PAOM, it provides an avenue for faculty members, academic staff, doctoral students, and other graduate students to hone their research skills by utilizing the PAOM e-Journal as a platform for knowledge sharing and dissemination. It also enables them to expand their repertoire of research publications, thereby helping them advance their academic careers.
