Special Issue of Leadership Quarterly on Gender and Leadership

Alice Eagly, Northwestern Unversity
Madeline Heilman, New York University

Among researchers across many academic fields, attention to the effects of gender on leadership has escalated in the past twenty years.  Web of Knowledge thus reports that the topic identified by combining leader/leadership with gender yielded only 17 published articles in 1990 but 346 articles in 2012. The overriding question addressed by most authors remains why women are not better represented in leader roles. This question can be partitioned into many specific questions concerning, for example, the leadership styles and traits of female and male leaders and prejudicial reactions to female leaders. Researchers in many academic fields have contributed to these and many topics.

Consistent with Leadership Quarterly’s identity as “An International Journal of Political, Social and Behavioral Science,” the aim of the special issue is to take stock of what is known about gender and leadership across science fields. This forum is intended to give readers wide exposure to scholarship on gender and leadership. Therefore, in this special issue, we particularly welcome focused reviews of empirical research on particular topics within the broad area of gender and leadership. Sample topics include the following:

  • Does stereotype threat deter women from becoming leaders?
  • Are men more ambitious than women for leader roles?
  • Are potential women leaders targets of prejudice and discrimination?
  • Do women leaders experience backlash for their directive behaviors?
  • How do gender and race interact in influencing access to leader roles and reactions to leaders?
  • Do women generally follow different paths than men in attaining leader roles?
  • Do female leaders have different goals than male leaders?
  • What are the effects of establishing quotas for women in leadership roles?
  • Do women tend to advocate for different policies than men do when holding political office?
  • Have media representations of female leaders changed in recent decades?
  • Under what circumstances have women emerged as heads of state?  

Answering these or other questions will communicate research on gender and leadership, in its many traditions and fields of study, to a wide audience of interested readers. The deadline for submitting manuscripts though the Elsevier submission portal (http://ees.elsevier.com/leaqua/) is 31 March 2015. Submissions should have no more than 35 pages of text. Authors invited to revise their papers should expect to resubmit by 31 October 2015, with final submissions due approximately 1 December 2015. The special issue will be published in the summer of 2016.

Leadership Quarterly Special Issue Call for Proposals

Collective and Network Approaches to Leadership

Guest Editors: Kristin L. Cullen & Francis J. Yammarino

This special issue invites submissions that examine the formal and informal leadership of and underlying collectives, networks, and systems. Substantial progress in theory development regarding how collectives engage in leadership has occurred, with approaches emphasizing the importance of informal leadership, which can emerge or reside in systems and network connections among people with shared work. Greater testing and theory refinement is needed. Empirical articles employing rigorous quantitative or qualitative methods with a focus on collective leadership, leadership networks, or leaders understanding and use of networks and systems for collective leadership are welcome as submissions to this special issue as are exemplary theoretical, conceptual, narrative review and methodological papers. The relationship between networks and systems and individual leader's success is not the focus of the special issue. However, articles addressing leader's role in building collective leadership through the development of networks and systems as well as articles examining collective leadership and leadership networks and their development and consequences are welcome. Manuscripts that connect formal and collective leadership and studies that take a longitudinal perspective with a focus on collective leadership development are of particular interest.

Deadline for submission of manuscripts is February 1, 2015.

The corresponding author should register in the system and then submit the manuscript on behalf of all the authors of the manuscript. Please make sure that when submitting to the system, authors select the article type for the Special Issue on Collective and Network Approaches.

Call for Papers: EAWOP Small Group Meeting-Disability and Employment: Integrating research streams and facilitating international collaboration

October 22 -24, 2014
Maastricht University, The Netherlands

Organizers: Fred Zijlstra, Adrienne Collela, Frans Nijhuis, Beate Muschalla, Patrizia Villotti, Katharina Vornholt

Conference Theme
The World Health Organization (2011) reports that about 15% of the world's population has a disability. Some would even argue that this is a low estimate given the various ways in which disability is defined across countries. In countries with civil rights legislation regarding the employment of people with disabilities, unemployment rates are approximately twice what they are for people without disabilities (UN Enable report, 2012) and it can be assumed that rates are even worse in countries without such law The issue of disability and employment has also taken center stage on the global arena because it spans several areas of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which represent eight time-bound goals designed to confront extreme poverty in its many manifestations (UN Enable report, 2012). With the recent passing of the United Nations (U.N.) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) there is now even greater international contextual support for pursuing the interests of persons with disabilities. Despite this global focus on the issue of disability and employment, organizational psychologists have failed to form strong international collaborations. This SGM will provide a forum to foster collaboration and communication among people working on disability studies.
In this meeting we will focus on the following four themes:

  1. Defining disability
  2. Hiring and Retaining Persons with Disabilities
  3. Barriers and Enablers to Full Workplace Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities
  4. The Supply Side Perspective

Format of the conference
The EAWOP Small Group Meeting is a workshop taking place over three days beginning Wednesday, 22"' of October 2014 and ending Friday, 241h of October 2014 (Wednesday, 1230 -1745, Thursday 830 -1715, Friday 0830 -1530). The meeting will feature four keynotes, approximately 16 paper presentations, two poster sessions, and a roundtable discussion on ideas for the future of the field, both research and practitioner focused. Additionally, time will be provided for discussions. There will be no registration fee and costs for meals during the day will be covered.

Submission of abstracts
Paper abstracts (up to 500 words) should be submitted by March 15, 2014 to sgm2014­fpn@maastrichtuniversity.nl. In their submission, authors should indicate which theme of the small-group meeting their paper addresses and how it does so. Participants will be notified about the acceptance of their paper by May 1 'I, 2014.

Publication of Papers
We are planning to publish a selection of the papers in a special issue of an academic journal. This will be discussed in more detail at the SGM.

Complete information can be found at www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/sgm2014.

Call for Abstracts: 9th International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics: Knowledge and Management Models for Sustainable Growth

11-13 June 2014, Matera - Italy

The 9th IFKAD aims to bring together academicians, policy makers, practitioners and young researchers from different fields to provide an opportunity for discussion and debate regarding "Knowledge and management models for sustainable growth" from a wide range of perspectives – economic, social, environmental and cultural – and to explore the relevance of knowledge and intellectual capital management for supporting organizations as well as regional and urban systems in their value creation dynamics according to a sustainable growth perspective.

The conference is also planned to provide postgraduate research and PhD students an invaluable opportunity to present, discuss and get feedback on their research projects from the international experts during the PhD Consortium.

In the last years sustainability has become a topic of global concern and a key issue in the strategic agenda of both business organizations and public authorities and organisations. Significant changes in business landscape, the emergence of new technology, including social media, the pressure of new social concerns, have called into question established conceptualizations of competitiveness, wealth creation and growth.

The 9th International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics (IFKAD – 2014) aims to shed more light on how the management of the strategic knowledge value drivers as well as of the related knowledge management processes may support organizations and communities in developing strategies and practices inspired by sustainability.

The IFKAD2014 includes general topics and specific track sessions focusing on key topic related to the main theme of the conference. Please visit the website to see the complete list of themes and special track sessions

For the submission of the structured abstract please use the electronic upload procedure of our website at http://www.knowledgeasset.org/IFKAD/Submission/.

Call for Papers: Human Resource Management Review

Special Issue on: Organizational Drivers of Customer Service Outcomes

Human Resource Management Review announces a call for papers for a special issue on the organizational drivers of customer service.

The special issue is edited by S. Douglas Pugh (Virginia Commonwealth University) and Mahesh Subramony (Northern Illinois University).

Customer outcomes have gained prominence in contemporary organizational and human resource management (HRM) literatures.  Influenced by work in services marketing highlighting the differences between goods and services (e.g., intangibility, simultaneous production and consumption) management researchers have focused on the organizational drivers of customer experiences and outcomes. The earliest trends in customer-focused organizational literature included investigations of unit-level variables such as service climate, as well as individual-level approaches rooted in trait theory (e.g., service orientation) and emotional labor theory. Simultaneously, the practitioner literature focused on linkage research and the service-profit-chain, both of which emphasized the quantitative links between employee attitudes, customer satisfaction, and financial performance.

Current organizational research has expanded to include a variety of psychological and unit-level constructs including team relational coordination, psychological empowerment, customer-focused leadership, organizational identity, employee turnover, and work engagement. Customer-related variables have also gained prominence as proximal performance outcomes of high performance work practices and human capital stocks and flows within strategic HRM literature. Finally, multilevel and longitudinal approaches are beginning to influence cutting edge theoretical and methodological developments.

In this special issue we invite papers that assess the current state of our knowledge and develop new theoretical perspectives on the organizational drivers of customer service and related outcomes.  We encourage submissions that address issues at the individual, team, or organizational level of analysis; and encourage submissions from multiple disciplinary perspectives.  Specific topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Personality (e.g., emotional intelligence, customer orientation) and service delivery
  • Emotion regulation and emotional labor and its effects on customer experiences
  • Direct and interactive effects of strategic organizational climates on customer outcomes
  • The role of HRM systems in driving customer service
  • Developments in training for service organizations
  • The impact of employee and/or customer diversity on customer experiences
  • Methodological challenges in linking organizational processes to customer outcomes
  • Justice and customer service
  • Individual versus organizational drivers of customer experiences and cross-level effects

Consistent with HRMR’s priorities, conceptual and theoretical papers are encouraged, although quantitative (i.e. meta-analytic) review papers that make a theoretical contribution may also be included.  Papers should be in pdf format and submitted to Doug Pugh (sdpugh@vcu.edu) by March 15, 2014.
