CfP: Organizing Sustainably: Actors, Institutions and Practices”

Organization Studies Special Issue Call for Papers: “Organizing Sustainably: Actors, Institutions and Practices”.

Editors: Rick Delbridge, Markus Helfen, Andi Pekarek, Elke Schuessler, Charlene Zietsma

The objective of this special issue is to go beyond established ways of thinking about sustainability and towards understanding how new forms of organizing – such as more participatory and distributed models (Ferraro, Etzion & Gehman, 2015) – can contribute to the sustainable usage of environmental, social, and economic resources in ways that avoid their degradation and exhaustion through models that will themselves be enduring. This includes addressing the questions of why unsustainable forms of organizations persist, how established organizations can be restructured sustainably, and what makes alternative forms of organization (un)sustainable.

We invite submissions related to a broad set of topics including (but not limited to): the practices and politics of the sustainable organization; alternative forms of organizing and societal grand challenges, work and employment in the sustainable organization; and conventions, ideas and logics surrounding the sustainable organization. We seek contributions from a wide range of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches. Specifically, our intention is to bridge diverse but established areas for sustainability research such as corporate social responsibility, diversity management, employment relations, employee health and wellbeing, environmentalism and business ethics with wider organizational scholarship on social movements, non-governmental and third sector organizations, public policy and local community organizing and, more broadly, research on the post-corporate economic organization and economic and social transformation.

Deadline: November 30, 2020.

CfP: Human Resource Management in Times of Crisis – IJHRM Special Issue

Over the last two decades we have witnessed several major crises that have affected the global economy, such as the Asian Financial Crisis, terrorist attacks such as 9-11, and the Global Financial Crisis. Most recently, the COVID-19 crisis has had a catastrophic impact on organizations across the world as governments close borders and lockdown whole sectors of the economy. In most economies business organizations have had to decide whether or not to lay-off or stand-down staff, whether or not to reduce staff benefits, and determine how these things should be done within short time frames. Businesses have also had to develop strategies to support employees’ performance, engagement, creativity, and wellbeing, whilst working remotely, and support employees to manage their carer responsibilities and other impeding personal factors. In view of the significant consequences that crises have for human resource management, researchers have begun to look at the HR practices adopted by organizations in times of crisis (Chu and Siu, 2001; Gunnigle et al., 2013; Kim et al., 2013; Sparrow et al., 2013; Teague and Roche, 2014; Zagelmeyer et al., 2012). However, we have witnessed limited research on how such HR practices are implemented by managers and impact on employees (Farndale et al., 2019; Lee et al., 2003; Zagelmeyer and Gollan, 2012). We therefore call on researchers to investigate how employees respond to human resource management practices adopted by business organizations in times of crisis and how human resource practitioners support and manage employees in times of crisis, with a focus on but not limited to, innovative technology-based human resource solutions (e.g. online training interventions and virtual performance management).

CfP: Challenges of Management in the COVID-19 Reality

Journal of East European Management Studies (JEEMS)
Special Issue 2020
Challenges of Management in the COVID-19 Reality

Guest Editors: Monika Wieczorek-Kosmala (University of Economics in Katowice), Thomas Steger (University of Regensburg), Igor Gurkov (Higher School of Economics Moscow)

Deadlines for Submission: October 31, 2020 (Paper Proposals), December 31, 2020 (Full Papers)

Since the onset of the new millennium, the world has been threatened by the occurrence of outbreaks of infectious diseases (e.g., SARS in 2008, swine flu in 2009, Ebola in 2013–2014, and Zika in 2015) igniting a discussion on whether we are prepared for the possible consequences of pandemic risk in societal and economic dimensions (Estrada et al. 2016; Woolnought and Kramer 2007).

However, the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak are unprecedented in numerous dimensions. The virus spread globally with ease, and on 12 March 2020, the WHO officially announced the outbreak of the pandemic (WHO 2020), calling countries to take rapid actions to control the situation. The social-distancing restrictions, border closures, ban on mass events, and the lockdown were implemented, leading to severe disturbances in the operating activities of numerous businesses worldwide. Although the most severe restrictions, COVID-19 continues with undefined persistence, as we are unable to predict when and where we may expect the next peaks of infections, what measures will be then implemented to stop its spread (another lockdown?), or when an effective vaccine will be available. In the managerial dimension, COVID-19 also created the risk of questionable reversibility, as it has caused disruptions in business activity that require substantial change.

For this special issue, we are calling for original, state-of-the-art research papers that consider the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak on organizational management issues in Central and Eastern Europe from a variety of managerial perspectives. We encourage scholars to look at both the consequences and challenges of COVID-19 within (but not restricted to) the following areas:

  • HRM (e.g., distant work, leadership, temporary shut-downs, lay-offs)
  • Strategic management (e.g., resilience strategies, recovery and adaptation)
  • Finance (e.g., liquidity tensions, bankruptcy threat)
  • Crisis management (e.g., organizational measures to soften the consequences of the pandemic)
  • Multinational companies (e.g., headquarter-subsidiary relationships under restrictions of international mobility, urgent revision of operational plans)
  • Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) (e.g., survival tactics)

The proposed special issue is subject to a tight planning schedule; this is particularly due to the high actuality of the topic. Thus, paper proposals (i.e., extended abstracts) must be submitted by October 31, 2020. Full paper submissions are required by December 31, 2020. The publication of the Special Issue is scheduled for summer/autumn 2021.

All papers are required to follow the Author Guidelines of JEEMS (https://www.jeems.nomos.de) and will be submitted to a double-blind review process. The length of the papers should not exceed 8,000 words (including tables, figures and references). Shorter papers (max. length 5,000) may be considered as research notes.

Submissions and all further correspondence regarding the special issue should be directed to thomas.steger@ur.de.

PhD Workshop: „How to design surveys and experiments for top tier publishing”

Being able to design experiments and surveys is a key qualification for anyone who wants to do any type of behavioral research. However, despite a lot of effort and resources invested, often experiments and surveys are designed suboptimally or are outright flawed. This also means that the chances to publish such studies in top-tier journals will be seriously limited. In this four-day PhD (and junior faculty) seminar, we will teach how to design and conduct experiments and surveys that rigorously test theory.

Additional emphasis will be laid on typical challenges when designing, recruiting for, analyzing, and writing up experiments and surveys. This will also include coverage of online studies.

The seminar consists of a mix of extensive prereading of key articles, to-the-point in-class discussion, and actual designing of own research projects within the seminar using Questback or Qualtrics and the Amazon’s MTurk platform.

At the end, participants will be able to confidently design their own behaviorally-oriented studies, and potentially already have a running start with one of them.

Lecturers: Niels Van Quaquebeke & Christian Tröster

Guest lecture by the AMJ Editor in Chief,  Laszlo Tihanyi

Date: Dec 7th to 10th

Language: Seminar language is English.

Location: If the situation continues to allow, the seminar will take place on the campus of the KLU in Hamburg, strictly following our COVID19 hygiene plan. Else we will prepare an online version.

CfP: Corporate Governance: An International Review – Call for Special Issue Proposals

Corporate Governance: An International Review invites proposals for special issues
that focus on a specific area of research that has broad appeal and fits with the aims
and scope of the journal. The mission of CGIR is to publish cutting-edge international
business research on the phenomena of corporate governance throughout the global
economy. We define corporate governance broadly as the exercise of power over
corporate entities so as to increase the value provided to the organization’s various
stakeholders, as well as making those stakeholders accountable for acting responsibly
with regard to the protection, generation, and distribution of wealth invested in the firm.

Special issue subjects have to be broad enough to attract general interest and
sufficiently focused to be dealt within a single issue. In general, special issues should
avoid a too narrow geographic focus and be open to contributions with various
disciplinary framings, methods or levels of analysis. Special issues have to be the
outcome of an open call for papers and must not be restricted to scholars who can
attend a particular conference. Nonetheless, offering a paper development workshop
for submitted manuscripts or revised submissions could be helpful (but is not
necessary) in increasing the quality of contributions and meeting the high standards of
CGIR that accepts about 5% of all submissions.

Deadline for Submissions of Proposals: August 1, 2021

CfP: Corporate Governance: An International Review – Review Issue 2022

Corporate Governance: An International Review seeks proposals for review articles
that consolidate and advance current knowledge of subjects in line with the mission of
the journal. The mission of CGIR is to publish cutting-edge international business
research on the phenomena of corporate governance throughout the global economy.
We define corporate governance broadly as the exercise of power over corporate
entities so as to increase the value provided to the organization’s various stakeholders,
as well as making those stakeholders accountable for acting responsibly with regard
to the protection, generation, and distribution of wealth invested in the firm.

Review articles should be high-impact scholarly surveys of important streams of
governance research. They should compile the state of corresponding knowledge,
integrate related literatures and provide promising avenues for future research. Their
scope should be broad enough to attract general interest and sufficiently focused to be
dealt with in a single article.

CfP: Beyond the ritualized use of questionnaires: Toward a science of actual behaviors and psychological states

Call for Papers / The Leadership Quarterly

„Beyond the ritualized use of questionnaires: Toward a science of actual behaviors and psychological states”

This Special Issue is dedicated to reinvigorating and advancing investigations into actual behaviors and psychological states manipulating or objectively measuring them so that our field can take a similar leap forward. Contributions may include (but are not limited to) the following types of theoretical, methodological, or empirical work in a social science (e.g., leadership or management more broadly)—context:

1. Studies developing clear definitions of important constructs that were heretofore typically captured via questionnaire measures but can be manipulated and objectively codedThe substantive change in the conceptualization of charismatic leadership and how it can be experimentally manipulated is an illustration of such an approach (e.g., see Meslec, Curseu, Fodor, & Kenda, 2020, who also employ consequential outcomes).

2. Studies systematically comparing empirical analyses based on questionnaire measures to those based on unobtrusive or archival measures (e.g., observing real behavior). Chatterjee and Hambrick’s (2007) work on non-questionnaire-based measures of narcissism is a case in point.

3. Studies systematically identifying types of questionnaire measures that are less prone to (conscious or unconscious) misreporting. For instance, Gioia and Sims (1985) developed a measure of leader behaviors that is not prone to bias due to performance cues and people’s implicit leadership theories.

4. Studies using direct observational measures or real-time measures of behaviorarchival data, and neurophysiological measures for variables relevant to the study of leadership or other social science phenomena (e.g., Antonakis, 2017; Gerpott et al., 2018, Wenzel &Van Quaquebeke, 2018).

5. Eliciting preferences and attitudes by using list experiments (Blair & Imai, 2012) and randomized response protocols (Greenberg et al., 1969), which are useful in measuring true states in contexts where social desirability and social norms may constrain true responses.

6. Experimental research in the field or laboratory to highlight biases, demand effects, or endogeneity issues originating from questionnaire measures, as well as the use of game-theoretic designs that consider costs and benefits of choices and actions (Zehnder, Herz, & Bonardi, 2017).

7. Studies purging questionnaire measures that serve as explanatory variable from endogeneity by instrumenting them with experimentally randomized instrumental variables (Meslec et al., 2020; Sajons, 2020) or measured variables that are exogenous (Cavazotte, Moreno, & Hickmann, 2012), whether in laboratory or field settings.

8. Reviews of research to identify problematic areas in studying real behaviors and psychological states and to chart new territory for researchers. Such reviews could serve as go-to guides for scholars developing their studies and seeking to jettison questionnaires.

9. Theoretical articles that contribute to the development of constructs and measures that foster the study of real behaviors in situ. Conceptual work on event-based approaches to studying leadership and management are a case in point (e.g., Hoffman & Lord, 2013; Morgeson, Mitchell, & Liu, 2015).
