Call for Papers


Call for Papers: Research in Organization Sciences

            This call is for a volume in the Research in Organizational Sciences series published by Information Age Publishing entitled Dough or D’oh!?: Practical Significance in Organizational Interventions (Daniel Svyantek and Kristin Cullen, Eds.).  Good evaluation efforts allow the utility of organizational interventions to be shown and informed actions taken. However, poor evaluation efforts can often lead to “d’oh” moments when managers, as Homer Simpson often does, realize that the interventions being used have not had the effect expected for some unforeseen reason.

Berger and Berry (1988) describe two sets of criteria used by producers and consumers.  Producers are those who create the basic research data of a field:  their expertise is related to the creation of new knowledge as well as a particular subject area.  Consumers are defined as context/subject matter experts who must take action based on the results of an evaluation in an applied setting. 

The goals of these two groups often seem incompatible. This leads to a perceived disconnect between research and the use of research in organizations.  This volume seeks tp provide ways to combine input from these two groups to provide organizations with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their own internal processes and the value of interventions that are being conducted.

Papers submitted to this volume may be methodological; empirical or conceptual. We particularly encourage collaborative articles written by those in academia and corporations on this topic.

Individuals may send a 1-2 page proposal to Daniel J. Svyantek (226-B Thach Hall, Auburn University,  Auburn, AL  36849-1234,  svyandj@auburn.edu) by mail or electronically by September 16, 2014. Authors with accepted proposals will be notified by October 15, 2014. If your proposal is selected, we will need your chapter by April 1, 2015. Individuals with questions about this volume may contact us at the email above.

Seeking papers that assess follower personality and leadership ratings

I am conducting a meta-analysis examining the relationship between follower personality traits and ratings of leadership behaviors at the individual level of analysis (i.e., relationships between a given follower’s personality and their personal, or individual, ratings of a leader). I am interested in personality traits broadly construed, but particularly traits that fall within the Five Factor model (i.e., extraversion, agreeableness, openness, and emotional stability/neuroticism) and leadership behaviors broadly construed, but particularly transformational, transactional, contingent reward, management by exception, laissez-faire, abusive supervision, initiating structure, and consideration leadership behaviors. I am interested in both published and unpublished work and in research employing correlational or experimental designs.

If you have any papers to contribute, please email me Winny Shen, Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of South Florida, at wshen@usf.edu by June 30, 2014. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

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.

Dr. Kristin L. Cullen, Center for Creative Leadership: cullenk@ccl.org
