Commentary

Commentaries discuss important and emerging issues in the field of organization design. 

A Commentary may discuss issues of general interest, summarize an author’s own empirical findings, provide an overview of research in an emerging domain, or offer an opinion on an important topic. Commentaries are invited by the Editors-in-Chief and do not undergo double-blind peer review. Editors reserve the right to edit Commentaries for clarity and space.

A Commentary should be between roughly 200 and 300 words long.
