    2025 Conceptual Issue
    Group & Organization Management is pleased to announce that Professors Walter Davis (University
    of Mississippi), Tammy Rapp (Ohio University), and Tom Zagenczyk (North Carolina State
    University) will serve as Editors for the 2025 GOM Conceptual Issue.
    Articles for the Conceptual Issue are intended to be high-impact scholarly pieces based on extant developments in research literatures. This Conceptual Issue consists of papers that provide an integration of management literatures, offer a value-added research framework, and highlight directions for future inquiry. Papers are not expected to offer empirical data. Inter-disciplinary and/or multi-level insights on management and organizational processes are encouraged. For guidelines on
    preparing a conceptual paper see
