In our editorial accompanying the launch of Journal of Organization Design (Vol. 1, Issue 1, 2012), we said that the field of organization design offers a true opportunity to bridge the worlds of scholarly research and management practice. We were pleased to announce the establishment of an open access journal dedicated entirely to advancing the theory and practice of organization design. Special features of JOD include a dual emphasis on theory and practice, an orientation toward the future, openness to methodologies that allow for organizational prototyping, and a forum for the discussion of new organizational forms. JOD introduced four different article formats which enable authors to find the proper voice for their work (research articles, translational articles, point of view articles, and urgent issue articles). Judging the various articles published in Vol. 1, we believe that JOD is headed in the right direction, and we are optimistic about its future.
JOD requires that at least one author of each accepted paper sign a Copyright Transfer Agreement form. Copyright will be transferred to Organizational Design Community when the paper has been accepted.
