Call for Chapters

This call is for a volume in the Research in Organizational Sciences series published by Information Age Publishing tentatively entitled Military organizations and Organizational Theory (Daniel Svyantek, Ed.). This volume is soliciting manuscripts that illustrate how 1) ideas derived from military organizations may aid in understanding other types of organizations and 2) how basic organizational constructs may be used to illuminate the special functions and processes of military organizations.

These manuscripts may be conceptual or empirical. Conceptual manuscripts may show insights derived from particular situations (e.g., does change from a military organization based on conscription to one based on a professional force require changes in human resource management processes?). Empirical manuscripts may explore areas such as developments in training processes in the military and the relative effectiveness of such processes when compared to training processes used in for-profit organizations.

Individuals may send a 1-2 page proposal to Daniel J. Svyantek (206-B Thach Hall, Auburn University, Auburn, AL 36849-1234, by mail or electronically by June 1, 2015. Authors with accepted proposals will be notified by July 15, 2017. If your proposal is selected, we will need your finished chapter by November 1, 2015. Individuals with questions about this volume may contact the editor via email.
