Aims and scope

The Journal of Organization Design is the intellectual home of organization design thinking. Drawing on a wide variety of disciplines, organization design is an area of study which focuses on the structures, systems, processes, and outcomes of different organization design choices.

The journal advances understanding of topics important to academic researchers and industry professionals alike. We aim to publish novel research and commentary on known or emerging organization design concepts and phenomena; examine new technologies for the design and management of organizations; derive practical implications from existing studies; and analyze new and unusual forms of organizing.

We welcome high-quality submissions that expand on the foundations of organization design and uncover new phenomena. Uniquely, authors can choose from numerous article formats, providing customized vehicles for expression. Articles are peer-reviewed, written, and read not only by design scholars, but also by managers within organizations.

​​​​​​​

The Journal of Organization Design is the official journal of the Organizational Design Community.


The Journal of Organization Design is indexed in Scopus, the Directory of Open Access Journals, and other indexes: see About.
