Calls for Papers

Call for Submissions: Special Issue of Strategy Science: Reinvigorating Research on Organizational Culture and its Link to Strategy

Guest Editors: Jennifer Chatman (University of California, Berkeley), Robert Gibbons (MIT), Amir Goldberg (Stanford University), Olivia (Mandy) O’Neill (George Mason University), Lauren Rivera (Northwestern University), Jordan Siegel (University of Michigan), Sameer Srivastava (University of California, Berkeley), Roberto Weber (University of Zurich), and Todd Zenger (University of Utah)

Submission Deadline: October 1st, 2019

Overall description: An organization’s culture has long been recognized as a key contributor to its strategic success, as well as to how its members—the people and groups within it—behave. Given the importance of the links between organizational culture, strategy, and firm performance, Strategy Science is hosting a special issue on different facets of this topic. The special issue aims to tackle two core questions: First, how do different conceptions of culture relate to one another in organizational contexts, and second, how can integrating these different conceptions help to advance our understanding of a firm’s strategy and performance? We welcome a broad range of methodological approaches, including mixed-method approaches. We are especially interested in papers that attempt to integrate different disciplinary perspectives on culture and offer implications for organizational performance.  

Manuscripts that do not appear to fit the topical focus of the special issue will be considered, with the authors’ approval, for a regular issue of Strategy Science. Strategy Science is a quarterly journal looking to publish a small set of high-quality articles in each issue that address central topics in the field. Authors can expect rapid and high-quality reviews by appropriate leading scholars in the field and clear editorial guidance should a revision be requested. For information about the journal and to submit a manuscript please see this link: http://pubsonline.informs.org/journal/stsc.

Call for Cases: North American Case Research Association (NACRA) Annual Meeting

Call for Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management cases for the 2019 North American Case Research Association (NACRA) annual meeting. The submission deadline is June 17, 2019, and the website for the conference and call for proposals may be found here (http://www.nacra.net/conference/call-for-cases/)

NACRA is an excellent conference for case writers. Case writers whose cases are selected will participate in the conference, receiving tailored feedback through NACRA’s distinctive round-table setting. For new case writers, NACRA offers a “start-up” workshop, where first-time case authors can present 2-page early cases for an in-depth discussion on how to shape their research into a full case and instructor’s manual. Traditionally, conference presenters have aimed to publish their research in the publication of NACRA, the Case Research Journal. In addition, cases published in the Case Research Journal are distributed by Harvard Business Publishing, The Case Center, Study.net, and Wilfrid Laurier University.  While “NACRA” has the words “North American” in its title, know that scholars from around the world presented at the just-concluded 2017 conference, and there were special awards given for cases written in French and in Spanish.

The 2019 annual meeting will take place from October 10 through October 12 at the Tempe Mission Palms in Tempe, Arizona. To learn more about NACRA, visit http://www.nacra.net/conference/call-for-cases/.  While this call is specific to OB/HRM cases, faculty with cases in the other business disciplines are welcome to submit to the appropriate tracks.

For more information, you may contact the track co-chairs below.

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Human Resource Management Journal - The role of HRM in refugee workforce integration - Advancing theory and enhancing practice

Guest editors: Luciara Nardon (Carleton University, Canada), Betina Szkudlarek (University of Sydney Business School, Australia), Soo Min Toh (University of Toronto, Canada)

The number of refugees worldwide is increasing dramatically. A recent UNHCR report estimates that at the end of 2016 the world refugee population was over 22.5 million (UNHCR, 2017). While the refugee population can help developed countries reverse their negative demographic trends and bring economic and social benefit to host countries, research suggests that many refugees end up underemployed (Krahn et al., 2000) or dependent on public assistance (Hansen & Lofstrom, 2003), thus failing to fully integrate into the host society (Feeney, 2000).

The goal of this special issue is to encourage theoretical and empirical developments on human resource management of refugees. We aim to foster a dialogue between human resource management scholars and other fields of research to encourage and facilitate effective strategies for refugee integration in the workplace and in the society at large.

With this call we intend to meet a twofold aim of addressing a topical issue of increasingly global relevance on the one hand, and theoretically advance the field of HRM of international workers on the other. Our call invites submissions addressing these and other relevant topics advancing our understanding of the role of HRM in refugee workforce integration. We welcome submissions from various paradigmatic and methodological traditions and invite interdisciplinary work. We seek contributions from various disciplines, using multiple theoretical frameworks and methodologies. We invite both conceptual and empirical papers.

Full papers should be submitted between April 1 and April 30, 2019 at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/hrmj, indicating “The role of HRM in refugee workforce integration - Advancing theory and enhancing practice” as the Special Issue.

The Special Issue will be published in early 2021. Enquiries related to the focus of papers or other queries related to the call for papers should be directed to Luciara Nardon (LuciaraNardon@Cunet.Carleton.Ca), Betina Szkudlarek (betina.szkudlarek@sydney.edu.au), or Soo Min Toh (soomin.toh@utoronto.ca).

Enquiries related to the online submission process should be directed to: HRMJ.journal@wiley.com

Call for Submissions, Guidelines & Process, Review & Provocation Paper Section, Human Resource Management Journal

The editorial team of HRMJ would like to invite authors to submit proposals for the Journal’s Review & Provocation section. See this link for an overview of the papers published to date: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/page/journal/17488583/homepage/provocation_papers.htm

Provocation Papers

For some years, we have published provocations as part of our ‘Provocation: HRM in the 21st Century’ series with the objective of stimulating debate in key areas of HRM. We began the provocation series as part of volume 21 and this was initially open to invited authors only. The series has since been opened up to author proposals, starting in 2017. Papers consider a key aspect or a specific contribution of research to HRM theory and practice. The rationale is either to challenge the conventional wisdom in the specific area, or to propose a new way forward for future research. Each of the articles is conceptual and relatively short, that is no more than 5,000 words. Notable examples include the Thompson (2011), Godard (2013) and Guest (2017) pieces.

Review Papers

The review section of the Journal has longer papers of up to 10,000 words. We do not seek to impose a single structure on our reviews. There could be several ways of contributing conceptually – a systematic review (which could link to policy or practice issues), a conceptual review proposing new research questions/propositions, or thought pieces which foreshadow new directions. Review paper submissions will be evaluated with respect to the following criteria:

  • Relevance: The proposed manuscript should fit with the HRMJ mission and appeal to the core audience.
  • Implications for new directions: The proposal should convey important implications for future HRM scholars.
  • Is the review constructive? The review should go beyond summarizing extant knowledge, critiquing what has been achieved to date, and making suggestions on how a field should move forward.


We are inviting 2,000-word proposals from those interested in submitting a paper for a Provocation or Review paper. Proposals should be submitted between 1 April and 1 May 2019. The proposals will be evaluated by the editors and those invited to submit full papers will be subject to editorial review. Full papers should be submitted within 6 months of the invitation.

Proposals for both provocation and review papers should include the following as a minimum:

  • The proposed author(s) including affiliations and short biographies (150-200 words in addition to the proposal)
  • A statement of the core topic of the provocation/review and a provisional title
  • Identification of the body of theory or empirical research on which the provocation/review builds, including previous work published in HRMJ where appropriate
  • An indication of the anticipated theoretical contribution and practical importance of the provocation/review to intellectual debate within HRM
  • A statement demonstrating why the provocation/review is best placed in HRMJ

Proposals should be submitted to the HRMJ’s e-mail (HRMJ.journal@wiley.com). Please be sure to clearly indicate whether the proposal is a Review or Provocation; when submitting proposals please include in the email submission line either ‘HRMJ Provocation Proposal’ or ‘HRMJ Review Proposal’. Please note that proposals may not be submitted until April 1, 2019 and HRMJ will not be able to consider late submissions.

Enquiries related to the call should be directed to Martin Edwards Martin.R.Edwards@kcl.ac.uk

Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals

Perspectives on polarities: thinking below the surface

The ISPSO (International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations)

Institute and Symposium, June 24th to 30th 2019, New York City

We live in a world in which ways of thinking and acting, and our identifications with them, are more and more polarized. Possibilities for holding more than one point of view are challenged, encouraging splitting and conformity. Such polarities accentuate the isolation of individuals and accelerate distance between groups, and can result in rigid and intractable group purpose and association, making coexistence more difficult and impeding our ability to navigate in an increasingly connected and interdependent world.

Call for Papers:

We invite paper proposals that explore the polarities of today’s organizations and the society in which they are embedded, both on and below the surface. Possible relevant areas of interest may include a psychoanalytic view of: The value and feasibility of social safety nets; racial relations; government and governing; immigration and national identity; economic inequality; gender and sexual identity; health insurance; and leadership. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list.

Paper proposals should be about 500 words related to the theme of the conference. Each parallel presentation will be allotted approximately seventy-five (75) minutes in the program, to include a formal presentation and discussion with participants.

Proposals should be submitted by January 11, 2019.

You will be notified if your proposal is selected for the conference in March 2019.

All proposals should be sent to Ken Eisold at ken@keneisold.com

Members of the planning committee that will evaluate proposals include: Kenneth Eisold, Paper Selection Chair; Marc Maltz; Elizabeth Neustadt; Barbara Oezdemir; and Susanne Skoruppa

Call for Workshop Proposals:

The first three days of the ISPSO’s annual meeting are dedicated to professional development workshops that are designed to provide members and non-members an opportunity to learn and develop from other professionals. The workshops should appeal to any member and non-member, regardless of profession. These workshops should offer:

  • Knowledge, skills and/or practices in psychoanalytic understanding and/or application to organizations
  • Opportunities to think and learn about organizations in new ways
  • Other approaches to psychoanalytic organizational work.

We especially invite proposals that explore the conference theme on polarities of today’s organizations and the society in which they are embedded, both on and below the surface. Proposals may be about any aspect of psychoanalytic organizational work. Institute workshop proposals should be about 500 words and include workshop length and any technology or other special needs (flipcharts, screens, room arrangements, etc.). A workshop could be a half-day, full day or two-days and include presentations, experiential and case work, participant discussions, and personal development and application. Please specify in the proposal the level of experience and knowledge the workshop offers (beginner, intermediate, advanced, or all levels)

Online Submission Form for Institute Proposals (click here)

Proposals should be submitted by January 11, 2019.

You will be notified if your proposal is selected for the conference in March 2019. Enquiries can be directed to Mal O’Connor at moconnor@cfar.co

Members of the ISPSO Institute planning committee that will evaluate proposals include: Mal O’Connor, Chair; Katharina Mueller; Elizabeth Neustadt; Susanne Skoruppa; and Joanna Stuart

Please note that it is expected that authors of proposals that are accepted will complete the application for Continued Education (CE) credits. Details will be provided upon notification of acceptance. If you have any questions about CE credits or the application process, contact Jeff Axelbank at jeff@jeffreyaxelbankpsyd.com.
