SPECIAL RESEARCH FORUM CALL FOR PAPERS

JOINING CONVERSATIONS IN THE SOCIETY ON MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATIONS

Matthew Haynes 0 913 Article rating: No rating

When a manuscript is submitted to Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), editors and reviewers frequently ask: Does the study define a new conversation (theory/lens/paradigm) or divert an existing conversation into a meaningfully different area? Conversations about management and organizations are regularly taking place outside the field of management and its journals as well. Those outside of our field and academic halls may conceptualize organizations and management differently, emphasize organizational and managerial characteristics that are relevant to them, and focus on problems that have not received attention in our studies.

The objective of this Special Research Forum (SRF) is to encourage AMJ authors to join conversations on management and organizations that are taking place in societies around the world. Specifically, we would like to publish a collection of outstanding empirical studies that (1) contribute to the solutions of contemporary managerial and organizational problems and (2) introduce topics to AMJ readers that are seen as important outside of our field but are understudied by management scholars. Examples of such topics include the effects of caste systems on employment, discrimination, socioeconomic status and class in organizations, sexual harassment, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, organizational values, labor strikes, artificial intelligence, global health inequities, the movement of workforce across borders, bribery, political influence, private politics, transnational organizations, interconnected economic systems, and the organizational implications of national conflicts, wars, and international trade agreements and sanctions.

The SIOP White Paper series organizes and summarizes important and timely topics in I-O psychology. The newest white paper, “Culture and Overseas Work: Expectations, Preparations, Coping; Return,” focuses on the well-being of expatriates.

The term sojourners is broad and includes all kinds of overseas experiences, including work, study, migration, diplomacy, proselytizing, and tourism. Expatriates, the main focus of this paper, often categorized as corporate or self-initiated, the former group sent overseas by an employer, perhaps for several years, whereas the latter moves overseas to seek employment.

As Congress Punts on Funding, SIOP Takes a Stand

Matthew Haynes 0 761 Article rating: No rating

Faced with another deadline to avert a government shutdown, Congress passed a second continuing resolution (CR) on November 21.  The new CR extended federal funding until December 20.  CRs lock in the previous year’s funding levels for federal programs and do not allow the creation of large-scale new initiatives.  This temporary funding status is particularly disruptive for the research community, who rely on consistent direction and support from federal agencies.  To this end, SIOP joined over 160 universities, research institutes, and scientific societies to sign on to a letter to congressional leaders.  The letter emphasized the importance of federal investment in research and development initiatives and warned of the adverse impact of uncertain funding on scientific progress.  (The complete letter can be found here.)
