2nd Organization Theory Winter Workshop

26-27 February 2021, Online

Abstract Submission is Closed

*only authors & co-authors of accepted

abstracts may register


The Organization Theory (OT) Winter Workshop is aimed at organization and management researchers who wish to write high quality and impactful theoretical papers for journal publication (in Organization Theory, Organization Studies, Academy of Management Review, or elsewhere). 

The workshop will offer detailed coaching and hands-on feedback sessions on participants’ papers as well as plenary sessions by members of the Organization Theory editorial team on key aspects of developing and writing theory (developing a theory contribution, construct clarity, genres of theory writing). 

This will be the first edition of an annual workshop which will bring together organization and management scholars, the editors of Organization Theory, and senior academics with experience in writing theory papers as additional facilitators and mentors.


Applications for the OT Winter Workshop are now open (please see details below); we encourage both senior researchers as well as researchers in earlier stages of their careers to submit conceptual papers to be considered for this workshop. We are open to theoretical perspectives from outside the ‘mainstream’ and are keen to support the development of papers that are currently not under review. Please note that empirical papers (those with quantitative or qualitative data) will NOT be accepted.


This workshop will be online, with sessions taking place via ZOOM (tbc).


The best papers from the workshop will be considered for publication in Organization Theory through a fast-track review process.
