New Organization Theory Journal Announced

In January, I was asked to join the editorial team for Organization Theory, a new open access journal being launched by the European Group for Organization Studies and published by Sage.

Organization Theory is a multi-disciplinary journal, rooted in the social sciences, inspired by diversity and paradigmatic plurality, and open to commentary and debate. Given this pluralistic ethos, papers can adopt different theory building styles and can be written up as research articles or perspective-taking essays, in both longer and shorter formats. Besides regular articles, Organization Theory publishes review papers and a series of commissioned essays that speak to the bigger theoretical topics and debates in the field.

Editorial Team:

  • Joep Cornelissen, Editor in Chief, Erasmus University, Netherlands
  • Markus Höllerer, Consulting Editor, University of New South Wales, Australia
  • Eva Boxenbaum, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
  • Penny Dick, Sheffield University Management School, UK
  • Joel Gehman, University of Alberta, Canada
  • Juliane Reinecke, King’s College London, UK
  • David Seidl, University of Zurich, Switzerland
  • Sophia Tzagaraki, Managing Editor, Greece

Today, we officially came out of stealth mode.

2017 Roland Calori Prize

On July 6, 2017, the Roland Calori Prize was awarded for the eighth time at the 33rd EGOS Colloquium in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Roland Calori Prize is awarded bi-annually by the European Group for Organization Studies (EGOS) for the best article published in the journal Organization Studies over the previous two years. Awarded in tribute to professor Roland Calori for his contributions to EGOS, Organization Studies, and EMLYON Business School, the prize recognizes papers that display methodological quality and theoretical innovation, reflecting the diverse perspectives of social sciences as they relate to organizational studies. In the spirit of Roland Calori’s own work, the prize reflects pluralism in research traditions and diversity of paradigms. The prize of €2,000 is sponsored by EMLyon.

Sustainability Journeys

Today, I presented a version of our forthcoming paper entitled “Metatheoretical Perspectives on Sustainability Journeys: Evolutionary, Relational and Durational” at the 2011 Academy of Management Annual Meeting in San Antonio (USA). Earlier versions of this research were presented at the Industry Studies Association Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh (USA) and the European Group for Organization Studies Colloquium in Gothenburg (Sweden).
