Organization Development Journal:

Call for Papers to Address our Dynamic

World Change!


The OD journal would like to encourage all who work in the field of organization development to think about this new world that we are living in whether it is academics, practitioners, consultants, or managers.  How has your world at home, at work, within your country changed because of the pandemic’s influence on our lives?

You can be in the field for years or a new professional.  We want to encourage writing that addresses the changes and the techniques you have found to be helpful.  What modifications have you made to your practice, your technology, and describe for others what worked and what did not.  Your paper can be on any area of topic that is appropriate.  It can be a case study, quantitative, qualitative, academic, practitioner, or theoretical.  It could be an article on what OD should do or might do in our dynamic crisis. 

Be sure to look at the Author’s Guidelines https://isodc.org/page-1740221 before you submit because these papers can come at any time and will go through the normal blind peer review process that we already have in place for the journal.

Please join us and make this a celebration of new thinking into the field of Organization Development and Change. All papers will go through the peer review process and if accepted will count as a peer reviewed publication.

Here is a brief introduction to what you need to know to submit a paper, but Other Requirements are in in the Author’s Guidelines:

Your paper should follow APA 7 guidelines and contain between 3500 - 7000 words.

Your paper should be double spaced, using 12-point Times New Roman Font, one-inch margins, 2 spaces at the end of each sentence, and in MS Word.
