send your best work to Strategic Organization

The journal Strategic Organization (SO) celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.  I really like the niche of SO, at the nexus of organization theory and strategy, and the nexus of sociology and economics.  The journal has published some great stuff over the past decade, and has also taken risks by publishing the papers of up-and-coming scholars like Jerry Davis and Wayne Baker.

Joel Baum, Royston Greenwood and Dev Jennings are the founding editors of the journal – but they have now moved on (after 10 years of hard work!).  Russ Coff (University of Wisconsin, Madison), Anne Langley (HEC, Montreal) and Tim Rowley (University of Toronto) are the new editors.  I have recently also joined them in editing the journal.

So, send us your best stuff!  The advantages of SO: it’s not stodgy and it’s fast (one round of review).  Also, SO has a cool “essay”-format, which allows you to, well, say something provocative or interesting (you know: bring back x, why has no one researched y, why on earth are people studying p instead of q, etc).

Seriously, send me (or any of the editors) an email if you are interested in writing an essay on something interesting.  Opinions are allowed.

The current anniversary issue features lots of interesting essays (and the papers can currently be downloaded for free):

  1. Please join me in welcoming Teppo aboard as a new co-editor for Strategic Organization!

    We are indeed fortunate to have him on the team. He also offers a clear signal of our commitment to continue serving as a forum for dialog and debate between strategy and org theory scholars.

  2. Congrats to SO and Teppo for his new position as co-editor. Great news!

    And yes, I concur that SO has been and continues to be an innovative journal that makes links between strategy and organizational theory.

  3. Congratulations to Teppo and to SO! This is good news for the field. It’s also nice to finally see a crack in the Canadian hegemony that has dominated that journal from the beginning. (Sorry for pointing that out. Sorry.)
