Conference announcement & call for papers
The 11th International Studying Leadership Conference (ISLC) will be hosted by the Maureen Bickley Centre for Women in Leadership at The Curtin Graduate School of Business, Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. The theme this year is 'Leadership at the Crossroads?' — reflecting the often conflicting demands, expectations and applications of leadership in increasingly globally complex and unpredictable climates.
Leadership is an international, peer-reviewed journal designed to provide an ongoing forum for academic researchers to exchange information, insights and knowledge based on both theoretical development and empirical research on leadership. It publishes original, high-quality articles that contribute to the advancement of the study of leadership. The journal is global in orientation and focus.
A recent Working Paper (#205, Oct 2009) from Kent Business School by John Mingers, Kate Watson and Paola Scaparra, 'Estimating Business and Management Journal Quality from the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise in the UK', noted that the journal was scored at 3* by the UK's last Research Assessment Exercise and that all 14 papers from Leadership included in the RAE were graded 3*. In effect the journal outperformed all other leadership journals, a significant achievement for a journal that is only five years old.
Leadership advances the understanding and significance of leadership in the economic, political, technological and social relations of organization and society. The journal encourages debate about the changing nature of leadership and leadership research and the dilemmas, ambiguities and complexities of leadership theory and practice, past and present.
A Wide-Ranging Approach
Leadership is the leading scholarly journal in the field of researching leadership studies, at the cutting edge of the theory and practice of leadership and organization. The main emphasis in the journal is on interdisciplinary, diverse and critical analyses of leadership processes in contemporary organizations. Leadership encourages new ways of researching and conceptualizing leadership.
Leadership is essential reading for academics, researchers and students engaged with leadership within the fields and disciplines of:
The International Studying Leadership Conference (ISLC)
The ISLC is held annually in December. It attracts leadership researchers from all over the world. The first conference was held at Oxford University in 2002, and since then the meeting has been hosted by the Universities of Lancaster (in 2003 and 2005), Exeter (2004), Cranfield (2006), Warwick (2007), Auckland (2008), Birmingham (2009), and Lund (2010). Conference participants often comment on the critical, rigorous, constructive and supportive atmosphere that characterizes discussions and debates at the ISLC.
In 2011 the ISCL was organised by The Leadership Trust and The University of West of England. Details of the conference can be found here.
Authors of papers presenting their research at the conference are also strongly encouraged to submit their work for peer review in Leadership. As editors of the Leadership journal, David and Keith are particularly keen to strengthen the links between the conference and published articles in Leadership. At the conference, SAGE give an award of the best paper presented at the conference and, after peer review, this is then published in a future issue of the journal.
