Organization Science

© 2010 INFORMS


Editorial Statement of Purpose

Organization Science publishes fundamental

research about organizations, including their

processes, structures, technologies, identities,

capabilities, forms, and performance. Research

from different disciplines, such as organizational

behavior and theory, strategic management,

psychology, sociology, economics, political

science, information systems, technology

management, communication, and cognitive

science, is represented in the journal. We

welcome research at different levels of analysis,

including the organization, the groups or units

that constitute organizations, and the networks in

which organizations are embedded. Diverse

methods and approaches are also welcome.

Creative insight often occurs at the boundaries

between traditional research approaches and

topic areas. The editors are especially interested

in manuscripts that break new ground rather than

ones that make incremental contributions. In

addition to the original research reports that are

the core of the journal, we occasionally publish

essays in our “Perspectives” section that direct

attention to an important new organizational

phenomenon or redirect a line of research. We

also publish essays in our “Crossroads” section

that capture a current debate about organizations.

More specifically, Organization Science seeks to

publish papers that:

• start up or redirect a line of inquiry;

• draw on multiple disciplines;

• employ diverse methods, including

qualitative, field, survey, archival, laboratory,

and computational methods;

• focus on different kinds of organizations,

including firms, not-for-profit organizations,

and voluntary organizations;

• make a theoretical contribution;

• provide new empirical findings;

• achieve genuine integration of theory and

data;

• provide a theoretically driven review and

integration of an important research area;

• discuss findings in terms of improving

organizational performance.

In addition to publishing, Organization Science

seeks to recognize and develop scholars and

scholarship by providing high-quality and timely

feedback and engaging exemplary scholars in

the process of identifying and developing

innovative and excellent research.

Instructions for Authors

Submissions to Organization Science are

received at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/

orgsci. Manuscripts submitted should have the

cover page excised from the electronic

document. Detailed instructions and software

requirements can be found at

http://orgsci.pubs.informs.org/.

Manuscript Format: Manuscripts must be

double-spaced, 11-point font, with 1-inch

margins all around, and be no more than 35

pages total. Longer manuscripts are considered

occasionally. If you think that your manuscript

requires additional pages (e.g., because it reports

qualitative research or findings from multiple

studies), include a note explaining our rationale

when you submit your manuscript. The cover

page must include the title of the manuscript.

Page 1 of the manuscript should include only

the title and an abstract (250 words or fewer).

The abstract should summarize the paper,

convey its broader implications, and be devoid

of mathematical symbols, acronyms, citations,

or technical jargon.

References cited in the text should be listed

alphabetically by author at the end of the

paper, beginning on a separate page headed

“References.” Refer to published Organization

Science articles for reference style.

Designate citations throughout the text by

the author’s surname and the year of the

reference, e.g., (Johnson 1993). Tables and

figures should be numbered consecutively and

should complement arguments presented in

the text. The position of tables and figures

should be cited in the text. Avoid references to

unpublished works. Endnotes and footnotes

should be avoided. If the note is necessary, it

should be indicated in the text.

Submission Policy: Certify that your

manuscript is original material, is not

copyrighted, has not been accepted for

publication, has not been published by any

refereed journal or book, and is not being

reviewed elsewhere simultaneously. (The paper

may be submitted to a conference at the same

time as it is being reviewed with Organization

Science.)

If the paper has been or will be published in a

nonrefereed publication, you must provide the

publication details to the Editor-in-Chief when

the manuscript is submitted to OS, so that the

suitability of the paper for Organization Science

can be assessed. OS requires that at least one

author of each accepted paper sign a copyright

transfer agreement form.

As a condition of final acceptance for

publication in Organization Science, the

author(s) must indicate if their paper is posted

on a working paper website, other than their

own. If so, authors are responsible for assuring

that, if any part of their paper has been

copyrighted for prepublication as a working

paper, the copyright can and will be transferred

to INFORMS when the paper has been

accepted. This includes both print and electronic

forms of the paper. Authors may post their

working papers on websites after acceptance

and prior to publication, as long as the sites

are not copyrighted or do not serve as formal

repositories.

Authors must certify that their

papers adhere to the above policies on

submission via the online system at

http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/orgsci.

Review Process: Organization Science has a

decentralized editorial structure composed of

Senior Editors and the Editorial Review Board,

committed to working with authors to develop

interesting ideas into publishable papers.

Each Senior Editor has the autonomy to

accept or reject a paper for publication, or to

request that the author revise and resubmit the

paper.

Authors are invited to nominate up to three

reviewers (with suitable expertise and no conflict

of interest with the author or paper being

reviewed). Organization Science will make

every effort to select one author-nominated

reviewer.

Manuscripts are reviewed in a double-blind

process by at least two reviewers. The Senior

Editor integrates his or her comments with those

of the reviewers to arrive at a decision about the

suitability of the manuscript for publication in

Organization Science.

If a revision of a manuscript is invited, we

urge the authors to resubmit the manuscript

within three months and no later than one year

from the date a revision is requested.

Author Alterations: Author alterations are

limited to those that are absolutely necessary,

such as mistakes in equations, etc. The editorial

management of INFORMS reserves the right to

make only those changes that affect the accuracy

of the text.
