About Journal of Organization Design

Burton (Duke University), Dorthe Døjbak Håkonsson (ICOA, Aarhus University), Samina Karim (Boston University), Peter Klaas (WTT A/S), and Phanish Puranam (INSEAD); and (c) a distinguished Editorial Board.

About Open Access

JOD provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Furthermore, an open access article stands a greater chance to be used and cited than does one published behind the subscription barriers of a traditional academic journal. Therefore, your research impact is likely to be improved once you become an open access author.

Online Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted to the journal at Once a manuscript is accepted for publication, it will undergo copyediting, formatting, and reference validation in order to provide the highest publication quality possible. JOD is listed in all of the major indexing services. There are no article processing charges for papers published in JOD.

Video Abstracts

We would like to introduce you to a special service that is available at JOD. Called Video Abstracts, it offers authors of an accepted paper the opportunity to include a short video presentation (approximately one minute in length) with their published article. This video can include the author in his or her natural setting, slides, photos, and so on, and will accompany the online article in JOD. A video enables readers to get a personal, insightful overview of the article and the reasons for writing it. For more information, please see our video gallery for actual examples.
