Submissions will be judged by the degree to which:  1) the paper addresses issues that are significant to the study of leadership; 2) the paper considers relevant theoretical and empirical literature; 3) the paper makes a conceptual or empirical contribution; 4) the research has applications to leadership identification and development.  CCL researchers will anonymously review the papers.
