ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR (OB)
We welcome submissions for inclusion in the OB Division’s scholarly program at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM). Details about the mission and research domain of the OB Division can be found here.
Paper sessions are composed of presentations of original and fully developed manuscripts. Author(s) submit a manuscript for consideration to be included in the annual meeting’s scholarly program. If accepted, the manuscript is typically assigned by the Program Chair to a session that includes other papers on related topics. (this may be different this year in our virtual program.)
Symposia can be submitted as either panel or presenter format:
- Panel Symposia: The purpose of a Panel Symposium is to engage a group of panelists in an interactive discussion. There are no titles associated with the panelists’ presentations. Proposals for panel discussions should include clear descriptions of the topics to be discussed and the procedures that will be used to manage the discussion among panelists and the audience.
- Presenter Symposia: Presenter symposia involve a series of authored papers on a preset theme. In a Presenter Symposium, titles and authors / presenters are associated with each presentation. Presenter symposia can involve co-authored presentations. Co-authors will be listed in the printed program.
