Organization Development Journal: Call for Papers

The OD Journal would like to honor new Scholar Practitioners to the field with the opportunity to publish their new research in a special edition of the journal for students only. You must be active in a degree seeking program either at the Master’s or Doctorate level. Your paper can be on any topic in the area of change within organizations. These papers may be in a variety of settings and different organizations. They may be academic, practitioner, quantitative, qualitative or theoretical opinion pieces. We are also interested in how technology influences new directions in behavior. If we get enough technology papers, we may do a special issue on that topic alone. Papers may be submitted with a faculty member’s name on it but the first author must be the student’s name.

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’s what you need to know to submit a paper:

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.

Please use CFP OD Journal in the subject line of your e-mail.

The first page of your submission should be a title page which includes: the paper’s title, author(s) name(s), snail mail addresses, e-mail addresses, and mobile phone numbers.

Please include abstract, 150 - 250 words with keywords, on a separate page, after the title page.


When possible, create attractive visuals (tables and figures) that aid in supporting your narrative. Note that the visuals will be reproduced in black and white.

We expect that the contributed papers are the original, never-published works of the author(s) and no copyrights have been violated.

Further questions can be sent to the Editor: Joanne C. Preston.
