    • AOM 2015 Theme: Opening Governance

      Theme for the 75th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management

      Vancouver, BC, Canada
      Opening Governance

      Opening Governance, Vancouver, BC

      The theme of the 2015 conference, Opening Governance, invites members to consider opportunities to improve the effectiveness and creativity of organizations by restructuring systems at the highest organizational levels. The term 'governance' refers to leadership systems, managerial control protocols, property rights, decision rights, and other practices that give organizations their authority and mandates for action. Opening governance involves revisiting these practices especially in light of big data, crowdsourcing, and other emerging digital technologies that expand the information and expertise available to organizational leaders.

    • Important Update from The Academy of Management for Swets Library Customers

      As was made public last month, Swets & Zeitlinger Group B.V. and Swets Information Services B.V. have been declared bankrupt.  Academy of Management library customers are exposed to a definite risk if they continue to submit payments to Swets for any AOM orders with Swets.

      Our concern is specific to all payments made to Swets for 2014 and any 2015 library subscriptions. Our reason for making this announcement is to control and reduce the potential impact this situation might have on your institution and give you the time to consider your options before committing to your 2015 library subscriptions and payment options.

      We strongly suggest that you consider using alternative agents for any existing or planned AOM library subscriptions or contact the Academy directly.   

      We would like to assure our valued library customers that we will do everything in our power to reduce the impact of this unfortunate situation, subject to any constraints the Academy may face in this process.

      Please contact the Academy of Management directly at  should you have any questions or concerns regarding your subscription.
