Group & Organization Management

An International Journal

eISSN: 15523993 | ISSN: 10596011 | Current volume: 48 | Current issue: 1 Frequency: Bi-monthly

For nearly forty years, Group & Organization Management has served as an international forum for the latest research and analysis in organizational behavior, organization theory, business strategy, and human resources. Whether you’re a scholar or practitioner, Group & Organization Management is your best resource for the new ideas and fresh perspectives you need to stay current in the field of organization studies.

Innovative and Rigorous

Group & Organization Management
is dedicated to publishing theoretically grounded research that addresses a wide range of issues within organizations. From individual behavior to organizational strategy and functioning, GOM features both empirical and theoretical articles spanning various levels of analysis in organizations. GOM’s conceptual and empirical focus gives scholars, educators, and practitioners the tools to help them solve the most challenging problems in today’s organizations.

Unlike most management journals, Group & Organization Management moves away from the boundaries of management subfields and encourages scholarship that challenges traditional distinctions among management scholars. The journal promotes the development of new paradigms and the explorations of paradigms from various disciplines.

Comprehensive Coverage

Each quarterly issue of Group & Organization Management publishes a broad range of articles, including data-based research articles, research review reports, evaluation studies, action research reports, and critiques of research. In addition, GOM brings you articles examining a wide range of topics in organizations from an international and cross-cultural perspective.

And, as an added bonus, Group & Organization Management extends its depth and immediacy of coverage by publishing Special Issues dedicated to important topics or proceedings from recent conferences.

In-Depth and Diverse

Whether you’re a scholar, educator, group facilitator, consultant, trainer, or manager, you’ll find Group & Organization Management brings you the information and discussion you need to excel in your career. GOM sheds new light on a variety of topics, including:

  • Leadership
  • Teamwork & Group Processes
  • Multi-level Theory
  • Organizational Communication
  • Strategic Management
  • Cross-Cultural and International Management
  • Macro OB
  • Organizational Cognition
  • Workplace Diversity

Group & Organization Management (GOM) publishes the work of scholars and professionals who extend management and organization theory and address the implications of this for practitioners.  Innovation, conceptual sophistication, methodological rigor, and cutting-edge scholarship are the driving principles.  Topics include teams, group processes, leadership, organizational behavior, organizational theory, strategic management, organizational communication, gender and diversity, cross-cultural analysis, and organizational development and change, but all articles dealing with individual, group, organizational and/or environmental dimensions are appropriate.  The journal provides an open forum for debate/synergy among diverging philosophical and methodological traditions in management, social sciences and the humanities, welcoming qualitative and quantitative research-based articles as well as critical research reviews and analyses.

    Data Sharing Policy

    The Editor and publishers of Group & Organization Management put into place the following research data sharing policy to further the robustness of the research process, support validation, research transparency, reproducibility and replicability of the work we publish in Group & Organization Management.

    As a condition of an accepted manuscript, authors are required to:

    • Share (1) their anonymized and/or deidentified research data of the variables used in the accepted manuscript, (2) any and all software created syntax file(s) for results reported in the manuscript and/or response letter, and (3) any and all software created output file(s) for results reported in the manuscript and/or response letter (i.e., no copying and pasting of syntax and results from the originally created software files) via the submission portal for review and APA data retention purposes. For manuscripts with qualitative data, the author(s) will work with the Editor-in-Chief and/or Associate Editor to determine which files should be shared on a case-by-case basis due to the issues associated with anonymizing and/or deidentifying qualitative data.
    • If authors’ Ethics Review Boards (ERB; or equivalent entity) and/or participating organization(s)/participants prohibits authors from sharing their research data, authors are required to share (1) their ERB forms and/or anonymized and/or deidentified official documentation from participating organization(s)/participants that explicitly states the data cannot be shared, (2) any and all software created syntax file(s) for results reported in the manuscript and/or response letter, and (3) any and all software created output file(s) for results reported in the manuscript and/or response letter (i.e., no copying and pasting of syntax and results from the originally created software files) via the submission portal for review and APA data retention purposes.
    • Authors should include a Data Availability Statement (DAS) for any article that reports results derived from research data. A DAS should be included on the Title Page under the heading ‘Data Availability Statement’. The DAS should include information on where data supporting the results reported in the article can be found including, where applicable, hyperlinks to publicly archived datasets analyzed or generated during the study. Where research data are not publicly available, this must be stated along with any conditions for accessing the data. A DAS must take one of the following forms (or a combination of more than one if required for multiple types of research data):
      • The datasets generated during and/or analyzed during the current study are available in the [NAME] repository, [PERSISTENT WEB LINK TO DATASETS]
      • The datasets generated and/or analyzed during the current study are not publicly available due [REASON WHY DATA ARE NOT PUBLIC] but are available from the corresponding author on reasonable request.
      • The datasets generated during and/or analyzed during the current study are available from the corresponding author on reasonable request.
      • Data sharing not applicable to this article as no datasets were generated or analyzed during the current study.
      • All data generated or analyzed during this study are included in this published article [and its supplementary information files].
      • The data that support the findings of this study are available from [third party name] but restrictions apply to the availability of these data, which were used under license for the current study, and so are not publicly available. Data are however available from the authors upon reasonable request and with permission of [third party name].
    • All research data of the variables used in the accepted manuscript and associated files for accepted manuscripts will be kept on the SAGE server for a minimum of at least 5 years following the date of publication (i.e., assignment to an issue), as required by the APA (APA Ethical Standard 6.01, Documentation of Professional and Scientific Work and Maintenance of Records), in case researchers require additional information. Please note that all research data and associated files will not be open access (i.e., they will only be made available for specific purposes, such as investigating claims about inaccurate results).

     

    What is 'research data'?

    ‘Research data’ refers to units of information collected, observed, generated, or created. Data may be numerical, descriptive, aural, or visual. Research data varies widely in format across disciplines, and can be anything from spreadsheets of quantifiable information, to qualitative information like interview data or field notes.

    I have an ethical, legal, or commercial concern about sharing my data, what should I do?

    SAGE research data polices are all subject to ethical and legal considerations. For example, there is no requirement to publicly share quantitative or qualitative data that could identify a research participant unless participants have consented to data release. Policies also do not require public sharing of other sensitive data, such as identifiable information.

    Alternatives to public sharing of sensitive, commercial, or personal data include:

    • Anonymization or deidentification of data before public sharing
    • Only sharing metadata about the research data
    • Stating the procedures for accessing your research data in your article and managing data access requests from other researchers
    • Using hybrid methods, e.g., releasing a redacted dataset for general use but providing access to more sensitive data through a user contract or data enclave

    How do I use this service as a SAGE journal author?

    Authors are required to upload their research data of the variables used in the accepted manuscript and associated files within 14 days of acceptance to the individual journal SAGETrack site. Please choose ‘Research Data’ as a file type from the file upload options to upload your anonymized and/or deidentified research data. Please choose ‘Syntax File’ as a file type from the file upload options to upload your syntax file(s). Finally, please choose ‘Output File’ as a file type from the file upload options to upload your output file(s). If authors’ ERBs and/or participating organization(s)/participants prohibits authors from sharing their research data, authors are required to share (1) their ERB forms and/or anonymized and/or deidentified official documentation from participating organization(s)/participants that explicitly states the data cannot be shared, instead of their research data. In this case, please choose ‘Research Data’ as a file type from the file upload options to upload your ERB form and/or anonymized and/or deidentified official documentation from participating organization(s).

    All research data of the variables used in the accepted manuscript and associated files for accepted manuscripts will be kept on the SAGE server for a minimum of at least 5 years following the date of publication (i.e., assignment to an issue), as required by the APA (APA Ethical Standard 6.01, Documentation of Professional and Scientific Work and Maintenance of Records), in case researchers require additional information. They will not be checked for accuracy, copyedited, typeset, or proofread. The responsibility for scientific accuracy and file functionality remains with the authors.

     

    General Manuscript Submission Guidelines:

    Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/gom. Authors will be required to set up an online account on the SAGETRACK system powered by ScholarOne. Your submission will be acknowledged electronically when received.

    Please be aware that you will be prompted to select from a pull-down menu five keywords describing your submission that will help us identify appropriate reviewers; your assurances that your submission is original (i.e., not published elsewhere) and is not currently under review elsewhere.

     

    Questions?

    Any questions concerning electronic submission should be directed to the Editor at Yannick.Griep@ru.nl.

     

    Language Editing

    Authors who want to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider utilizing the services of SPi, a non-affiliated company that offers Professional Editing Services to authors of journal articles in the areas of science, technology, medicine or the social sciences. SPi specializes in editing and correcting English-language manuscripts written by authors with a primary language other than English. Visit http://www.prof-editing.com for more information about SPi’s Professional Editing Services, pricing, and turn-around times, or to obtain a free quote or submit a manuscript for language polishing.

    Please be aware that SAGE has no affiliation with SPi and makes no endorsement of the company. An author’s use of SPi’s services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and SPi, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.

     

    Publication Ethics

     

    This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
     

    ANNOUNCEMENT: REQUIRED ACTION for Manuscripts Using CFA, SEM and Path-Analysis

    If your manuscript employs Confirmatory Factory Analysis (CFA), Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), and/or path analysis, use the tool linked below to calculate the degrees of freedom for the reported analyses. Check the consistency between the degrees of freedom from your original analyses and the calculator, and correct errors to eliminate discrepancies. Submit screen shots of the results from the Degrees of Freedom Calculator with your manuscript.

    http://statcalculators.com/t-statistic-and-degrees-of-freedom-calculator

     

    ANNOUNCEMENT: Final Methods Review Option for Conditional Acceptance Decisions of Manuscripts that Use Quantitative Methods

    For manuscripts that include quantitative analyses, please note that Group & Organization Management, has implemented an optional "methods review" step as part of the review process. That is, when such manuscripts reach the stage where the Action Editor is contemplating a "Conditional Acceptance" decision, he or she may request GOM’s Methods Associate Editor, Brian Miller, provide a final methods review. Specifically, a review of the methods and statistical analyses reported will be requested to ascertain if there is a need for additional information or clarification and/or any errors that require correction. The findings of this methods review will be taken into account by the Action Editor when issuing the subsequent editorial decision.

     

    ORCID

    As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.

    The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

    If you do not already have an ORCID iD please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.

     

    Sage Choice

    If you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to nonsubscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self author archiving deposits (green open access) visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.

     

    For Journals Using Recommended Reviewers

    As part of the submission process you will be asked to provide the names of [X] peers who could be called upon to review your manuscript. Recommended reviewers should be experts in their fields and should be able to provide an objective assessment of the manuscript. Please be aware of any conflicts of interest when recommending reviewers. Examples of conflicts of interest include (but are not limited to) the below:

    • The reviewer should have no prior knowledge of your submission
    • The reviewer should not have recently collaborated with any of the authors
    • Reviewer nominees from the same institution as any of the authors are not permitted

    Please note that the Editors are not obliged to invite any recommended/opposed reviewers to assess your manuscript.

    • Your title page includes complete contact information for all authors, including mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, phone and fax numbers.
    • There is NO abstract associated with your submission.
    • The text of your submission, including abstract, body of the paper, and references (but not including title page, tables, and figures), is no longer than 2,000 words total.
    • Any prior publication of the data featured in the manuscript is explicitly acknowledged either in the manuscript or in the transmittal letter to the editor. Any forthcoming or "in press" articles which use the data should be forwarded to the editor with the submission.
    • Your manuscript meets one or more of the following goals outlined in Cruz, Zagenczyk and Griep (2022): (1) refresh readers minds about a particular topic of interest to the field, (2) cause readers to re-think their old (and often outdated) assumptions or opinions, (3) spark a needed debate about a particular topic relevant to the field, (4) shape thinking about a new topic relevant to the field, and/or (5) topics of which you feel there is a need for a well-reasoned rant, supported by evidence.
    • Your manuscript is written in such a way that your personalities shine through; GOMusings are thus somewhat different than your traditional academic manuscript. Please consult previously published GOMusings for style and formatting.

     

    Manuscript Submission Guidelines for GOM NOW MANUSCRIPTS:

    Since this manuscript approach is a bit different from traditional ones, we wanted to provide authors some additional guidance. Below is a rough outline of how to structure your article.

     

    • Your submission (including references) conforms to APA format as outlined in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition).
    • Files should be submitted in Microsoft Word format.
    • All text, including references, is double-spaced in 12-pitch or larger font with margins of one inch or more.
    • Your title page includes complete contact information for all authors, including mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, phone and fax numbers.
    • There is NO abstract associated with your submission.
    • The text of your submission, including abstract, body of the paper, and references (but not including title page, tables, and figures), is no longer than 2,500 words total.
    • Your manuscript adheres to the following structure, see also Kessler (2021):
      • Introduction
        • What is your research topic? Why is this topic important and timely? Why do business leaders at all levels need to know about your research?
        • What is known about research in this area specifically relevant to the research reported in the manuscript?
        • How does your manuscript add to the body of knowledge?
        • Inclusion of a theoretical mechanism is optional.
        • Include your hypotheses or research questions.
        • It migh be helpful to review medical and nursing journals. These fields tend to use shorter introductions than our field.
      • Methods/Results
        • In these sections, we are looking for you to provide your reader with basic ideas. Who were the participants? How did you recruit them? What did you ask participants to do? How did you collect data (e.g., measures you used for survey data)?
        • How did you analyze your data? What did you find (i.e., results)?
        • You may use statistical terminology here, but just explain the terminology (i.e., do not assume your readers know terms like CFA and SEM).
      • Discussion
        • Summarize what you found in one paragraph.
        • Explain to the reader why these findings are important and helpful for practice, that is, why do the findings reported in the manuscript matter?
        • Provide clear and useful practical implications. What should practitioners do with your findings? How do they apply your findings to the workplace?
        • What are future research questions that we should be asking?
    • Your manuscript includes a Methods/Results Appendix: Manuscripts must be methodologically sound for when someone "looks under the hood." For example, here is where you can include full CFA results or statistics used to justify aggregating data. Just because you do not include some of these things in the manuscript, doesn't mean they haven't been done. Therefore, please include full methods/results sections as supplemental material. These sections should look like a traditional Methods/Results section. This will help speed up the review process. These sections will be published online so that readers can go a bit deeper if they choose.
    • Any prior publication of the data featured in the manuscript is explicitly acknowledge either in the manuscript or in the transmittal letter to the editor. Any forthcoming or "in press" articles which use the data should be forwarded to the editor with the submission.
    • Please consult previously published GOM Now articles for style and formatting.
