Special Issue CfP: Harnessing Exogenous Shocks for Leadership and Management Research
Submission Period: 1st February 2021 to 15th March 2021.
Special Issue Co-editors:
This special issue of The Leadership Quarterly seeks to provide a platform for researchers to leverage exogenous shocks to advance leadership and management research (we include "management" here to also cover basic and strategic management functions and governance systems, which can also overlap closely with leadership-related antecedents, and outcomes). We invite scholars to study the leadership-related effects of exogenous shocks, to analyze leader responses to shocks, and to exploit natural experiments created by shocks to causally test leadership theories. We are interested both in leadership topics that have not yet been studied and in topics that have already been studied but where we lack rigorous causal tests. Important to note is that studies must consider the causal claims made and bearing in mind important counterfactual conditions and controls. That is, authors must ensure to theorize and robust test causal claims (refer to the section titled "How to make a more useful contribution to the research record," Antonakis, 2017). Authors should carefully consult the recent editorial statement by the journal editors to see what kinds of manuscripts the journal actively solicits (Antonakis et al., 2019).Topics that will be considered-for either empirical, methodological or theoretical contributions-include, but are not limited to:
Submission ProcessAuthors can submit their manuscripts starting from 1 February 2021 but no later than the submission deadline of 15 March 2021, online via The Leadership Quarterly's Editorial Manager submission system athttps://www.editorialmanager.com/LEAQUA/default.aspx.To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for consideration for this Special Issue, it is important that authors select "SI: Exog Shocks" when they reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with The Leadership Quarterly's Guide for Authors available on the journal web page. All submitted manuscripts will be subject to The Leadership Quarterly's double blind review process.Research DataResearch data forms the backbone of research articles and provides the foundation on which knowledge is built. Researchers are increasingly encouraged, or even mandated, to make research data available, accessible, discoverable and usable. Although not mandatory, the journal encourages authors to submit their data at the same time as their manuscript.
