We’re contacting you regarding the call for papers for the Feature Topic announced by the Organizational Research Methods journal. In the appreciation of your recent work within the area of person-centered methodologies, we would like to kindly invite you to contribute to the Feature Topic. The call for papers is available on the journal website: http://orm.sagepub.com/site/includefiles/orm_cfp_person.pdf
The aim of this Feature Topic is to highlight the benefits and limitations presented by person-centered research methods within the managerial and organizational research, and to illustrate recent developments in this methodological area. In line with Organizational Research Methods’ policies, we equally welcome proposals with a dominant methodological focus, proposals with a dominant pedagogical focus, as well as proposals with a dominant substantive (or rather, substantive-methodological synergy) focus. These later types of papers should aim to illustrate how these methods may be used to address important research questions.
In order to be considered for publication in this feature topic, a 5-7 page (double-spaced) proposal/summary should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 31, 2016. These summaries will be used as a screen to ensure that the focus and scope of each paper is appropriate to the aims of the feature topic. The proposal should clearly articulate the contribution of the paper intends to make to the methodological conversation around person-centered methodologies within the organizational sciences. The Guest Editors will review the proposals, and authors will be contacted with invitations to submit full-length papers. Authors with accepted proposals must submit their completed manuscripts by October 31, 2016. All completed papers will undergo the standard double-blind ORM review process and must meet the standards of the ORM Editorial Policy Statement (see http://orm.sagepub.com). Manuscripts should be submitted via the ORM website (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/orm).
