Call for Papers on Neuroscience in Organizational Research

by

brainy-people-1072657-mOrganizational Research Methods seeks submissions for a feature topic on Neuroscience in Organizational Research. This feature topic will be guest edited by Micah Murray and John Antonakis, both of Lausanne University.

From the call for papers:

In many areas of the social and behavioral sciences, neuroscience has emerged as one of the dominant conceptual and methodological frameworks for studying human behavior. Although it originally gained traction in the psychological sciences, the 07ORM13_Covers.inddneuroscience paradigm has since spread to other areas in the social sciences including economics, marketing, and finance. However, with a few notable exceptions, researchers in management and applied psychology have been slow to embrace neuroscientific models and methods (for a few illustrative exceptions see Bagozzi et al., 2013; Balthazard, Waldman, Thatcher, & Hannah, 2012). One explanation for this reticence, may be that researchers lack an appreciation for the diversity of neuroscience methods that are available and how these methods might be incorporated into their science.

The purpose of this feature topic is threefold. First, we intend to expose organizational scholars to the broad array of neuroscience methods and how these methods might be used to test substantive research questions (both basic and applied). Second, we intend to provide illustrative examples that empirically demonstrate the value-added nature of these methods. Finally, because no method or set of methods are without limitations, we intend to provide critical reviews of these methods so that their strengths and limitations may be better understood by organizational scholars.

Organizational Research Methods will be publishing a two-part Feature Topic devoted to Neuroscience in Organizational Research. The first part will consist of invited papers while the second part consists of a call for papers that will extend what is presented in Part I. Proposals of no more than 5 pages double-spaced should be emailed to both guest editors anytime prior to September 30, 2015. For more information, including topics which have been commissioned for Part 1 and contact information, click here.
