The Organization and Management Series publishes books that establish innovative avenues of inquiry or significantly alter the course of contemporary research in an established area.
Taking a broad view of the domain of organization and management scholarship, the editors seek to publish theoretical and empirical works grounded in a variety of disciplinary perspectives that focus on units of analysis ranging from individuals to industries. In addition, the series welcomes purely methodological contributions, as well as edited volumes of original essays.
