    2023 Conceptual Issue

    Group & Organization Management is pleased to announce that Professors Tammy Rapp (Ohio
    University), Walter Davis (University of Mississippi), Lucy Gilson (University of Connecticut), and
    Melissa Carsten (Winthrop University) will serve as Editors for the 2023 Conceptual Issue.

    Articles for the Conceptual Issue are intended to be high-impact scholarly pieces based on extant
    developments in research literatures. This Conceptual Issue consists of papers that provide an
    integration of management literatures, offer a value-added research framework, and highlight
    directions for future inquiry. Inter-disciplinary and/or multi-level insights on management and
    organizational processes are encouraged. Papers are not expected to offer empirical data. For
    guidelines on preparing a conceptual paper see Gilson, L.L., & Goldberg, C.B. (2015). Editors'
    Comment: So, what is a conceptual paper? Group and Organization Management, 40(2), 127-130.

    To be considered for the 2023 Conceptual Issue, authors must first submit a proposal. Proposals
    should be 1500-1800 words and provide sample references. References, figures, and tables do not
    count against the word count. All proposals will be subject to editorial review prior to requesting that
    they be developed into full papers. Full papers will be sent out for blind review.

    Full papers will NOT be considered at the proposal stage. Proposal submissions will be evaluated on
    the following criteria:

    within the group and organizational management field.

    (b) Viability. The proposal demonstrates that the paper will be completed within the time frame

    (c) Scope of Interest. A proposal of broad interest to scholars in diverse research areas is preferred.

    (d) Organization and Coherence. The proposal follows a logical structure, reads clearly, and
    thoroughly represents the field of knowledge.

    (e) Conceptual Value Added. The proposal offers insights that go beyond a thorough summary of
    current literature.

    (f) Agenda for Future Research. The proposal conveys relevant implications for future research.
