Aims and Objectives of the International Journal of Organizational Analysis

The aim of the International Journal of Organizational Analysis is to provide a robust and discursive forum for the study and analysis of organization. IJOA welcomes historical, contemporaneous and visionary discussions that provide insights into the phenomenon and practice of organization. With concern for the form of organizations, the IJOA seeks studies of, for example, private, public, voluntary, co-operative, military organizational situations. Equally, the journal welcomes explorations of "alternative", emergent and futuristic organizational dimensions and dynamics.  

In tandem with these foci, the IJOA invites analyses and commentaries engaging a wide range of disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, methodological, epistemological and ontological perspectives espousing normative and critical positions.

Above all, as an overarching and synthesizing aim, IJOA seeks to publish studies that identify and translate theoretical reflections in terms of their practical impacts and implications on business and society.  

The journal encourages:

  • (Critical) analyses of theory and its translation into practice into organizational contexts and disciplines including, for example, human resource management, organizational behaviour, strategic management, entrepreneurship;
  • Considered discussion of past, present and future constructs or concepts of organization and their implications for wider societal settings and contexts;
  • (Critical) discussion of  individuals, groups and communities in organizations e.g. organizational citizenship, behavior management, and employee experience;
  • ‘Alternative’ or interdisciplinary approaches to understanding and constructing organization;
  • Innovative methodological approaches to understanding organization.
  • (Critical) analyses of organizational issues in relation to revisiting, challenging and rephrasing issues of corporate governance, sustainability, organizational (in)justice, workplace democracy and representation, globalization, consumption, commodification and capitalistic perspectives of organizations.

(Inter-Disciplinary) Coverage

The IJOA welcomes papers that draw on, but not exclusively:

  • Organization theory
  • Organization behaviour
  • Organization development
  • Organizational learning
  • Strategic and change management
  • People in organizational contexts including human resource management and human resource development
  • Business and its interrelationship with society
  • Ethics and morals, spirituality


The International Journal of Organizational Analysis focuses on organization and its past, present and possible future forms. It maintains a broad coverage of topics but looks at the critical impact of disciplines as experienced by people in organizations and society with the aim of improving life in, and experience of, organizations. Rather than theory remaining primarily an exercise played out in the academy, the Journal is interested in developing the application of theory into practice.

Recent Special Issues

Resilience and competitiveness of SMEs (Volume 27, Issue 2) - Guest Editor: George Lodorfus. This special issue brings together research on the determinants of resilience and competitiveness of SMEs, focussing on both internal and external factors that may affect SMEs' sustainability and growth.

Organizational excellence in the Middle East (Volume 23, Issue 3) - Guest Editors: Sanjay Kumar Singh, Peter Stokes.This sepcial issue is consciously designed for academics, practising managers and business leaders in order to contribute empirical as well as conceptual research papers aimed at enlarging extant knowledge and to support effective leadership of organizations in the Middle East.

Organizing in a French Context (Volume 22, Issue 4) - Guest Editors: Peter Stokes, Eric Davoine, Ewan Oiry. Within the Western economic environment, the French economic model has endured as a particularly distinctive approach to capitalism (Boyer, 2005). This model has generally been characterized by a number of well-established and typical features including, for example, an overall potent industrial base with particular strength in international sectors such as the automotive, energy, chemical and aerospace industries. In the light of these, seems relevant to take an opportunity to enhance and develop a contemporary overview and understanding of French management and organization through a prism of contributions within this special issue of International Journal of Organizational Analysis, aiming to recharge and reinvigorate the analysis and assessment of French organizations and organizing contexts.
