Emergence: Complexity & Organization “Call for Papers”

Submission should be received by May 15, 2006.

Emergence: Complexity & Organization (E:CO), a peer-reviewed journal in the social sciences, is issuing a call for papers for a special issue on Leadership and Complexity. Complexity is the study of the dynamics of interaction among people and ideas over time. This dynamic approach conceptualizes organizations as a set of individuals, processes and mechanisms that generate emergent outcomes. Leadership research studies the nature of a particular type of interaction among people, an interaction that leads to coherent thinking and coordinated action at the collective level and to the emergence of perceived leader and follower roles.

The special issue is anticipated to be published in December of 2006. The editors invite theoretical analyses, suggestions for empirical studies, or practical works and are particularly receptive to collaborative efforts that span different academic disciplines or fields and that introduce new methodologies or approaches. Manuscripts should be no longer than 40 pages including references and should be prepared in accordance with American Psychological Association format.
