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, and who consider Organization Theory as a potential outlet.

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 (e.g., developing a theory contribution, construct clarity, genres of theory writing).


This will be the third edition of our annual workshop that brings together organization and management scholars, the editors of Organization Theory, and senior academics with experience in writing theory papers as additional facilitators and mentors.

Our workshop will be face-to-face and will take place on the premises of the University of Oslo, hosted by the Department of Sociology and Human Geography and the Department of Political Science (unless the pandemic regulations will not allow this). We will not be able to offer a hybrid format.


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



The 3rd Organization Theory workshop will take place on the February 2-3, 2023. Those interested in participating should submit an extended abstract until November 15, 2022 . Abstracts should be no more than 1,000 words. Authors will be notified of acceptance by November 30, 2022. Full papers must be submitted by January 15, 2023 to give everyone a fair chance to read and prepare in-depth comments. Further details on the logistics of the workshop will be published through the OT Workshop website and via email to accepted participants.
