Call for Papers: FINT Workshop on Trust Within and Between Organizations 2022

  • 1.  Call for Papers: FINT Workshop on Trust Within and Between Organizations 2022

    Posted 08-11-2021 22:04

    Dramatic and unprecedented events of the recent few years have exposed challenges to trust in leadership, business, governments, science, and information in general. Rarely has trust within and between organizations appeared more fragile, heightening the need to advance understanding and innovation in trust. The 11th FINT workshop on Trust Within and Between Organizations aims to provide a forum where the community can consider these challenges and how best to meet them.

    For the first time in its history, FINT will host its workshop in the United States, to be held in Charleston, South Carolina March 10 - 12, 2022.  Recognizing that trust is a concept that crosses disciplinary boundaries and impacts numerous facets of individual, group and organizational processes and outcomes, we encourage submissions reflecting diverse disciplines, literatures, and phenomena. We welcome new theoretical perspectives and empirical evidence based on qualitative or quantitative inquiry.

    Format and Submission

    We invite you to submit a paper in one of four categories:

    • First Cut Papers. Papers under development can be submitted to the "First Cut Papers" section. These papers will be featured in conference sessions designed to provide the maximum amount of feedback to authors. Papers in this category should be submitted as an extended abstract up to a maximum of 1500 words, including title and abstract.
    • Conference Papers. Well-developed manuscripts nearing journal submission or publication can be submitted to the "Conference Papers" section. Papers in this category can be up to a maximum of 3000 words including title and abstract.
    • Alternate Format Submissions (Symposia, Panels, etc.). We also welcome submissions for alternative types of sessions, including symposia, interactive panel discussions, workshops, and other innovative formats (feel free to be creative!). Unlike the paper submissions, these submissions are not blind review and should include a title page with the names, affiliations, and roles of people who will be leading, presenting, or speaking in the session. Alternate format submissions should be no longer than 3000 words (including title page, abstract, figures/tables, references etc.). Successful submissions will typically be assigned a 1.5-hour session within the conference program. Please note that we have limited space for alternate sessions.
    • Junior Faculty/Doctoral Student Colloquium. Doctoral students, junior faculty members, and other early career researchers are also encouraged to submit a paper for inclusion in the "Paper Development Session" of the Junior Faculty/Doctoral Student Colloquium to be held on March 10th. Submissions may range in length from 6 pages to a full-length paper.

    In all categories, papers should be submitted in MSWord or PDF with double spacing, 12pt Times New Roman font, numbered pages, and APA-style citations. Your paper should clearly explain the relevance of the chosen topic, the research question, theoretical background, and the contribution of the research. Empirical papers should provide an overview of their methodology, analysis, and main findings. To facilitate double-blind review please ensure your submission document excludes any author names or identifying information. Details of authorship can instead be provided through the paper submission system.

    All submissions are now due September 5th, 2021 at 23:59 EST. Please visit the website:
