2025 Special Issue Call for Papers – Authentic Leadership: 20-Year Review

Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to announce a Call for Papers for the upcoming 2025 Special Issue at the Journal of Management and Organization (JMO):

Authentic Leadership: 20-Year Review

Guest Editors
Professor Kevin Lowe, The University of Sydney, kevin.b.lowe@sydney.edu.au
Dr Andrei Lux, Edith Cowan University, a.lux@ecu.edu.au

20-Years after The Leadership Quarterly 2005 Special Issue that launched a new field of authentic leadership research, we are curating a state-of-the-science review that will take stock of the work that’s been done since, and the challenges that remain, to set a future research agenda.

Authentic leadership theory is hotly debated in the field and research interest is on a strong upward trend, supported by a burgeoning of empirical contributions. Critical perspectives have done little to stem the production of authentic leadership research and the popularity of the construct continues to increase. The time is right to launch a Special Issue that’s positively framed and will help shape inevitable future contributions by guiding scholars’ efforts towards identifying and resolving the challenges facing authentic leadership theory.

Important Dates
Submissions Open – 1 November 2023
Submissions Deadline – 30 June 2024
