JOD has had a very successful year so far in 2017. The journal is publishing at a rate of at least one article per month, a requirement for obtaining an impact factor in the future. The Organization Zoo series is attracting attention, and several recent articles have received a large number of hits shortly after publication. Springer’s efforts to market JOD are paying off. Further, the number of citations is growing including many Web-of Science citations. JOD is doing particular well for a new Opens Access Journal. We encourage you to read JOD, and if you write a design-related paper, please consider submitting it to JOD.

A new initiative has been presented by the ODC-member Ana Aleksic Miric to grow the ODC website as a knowledge base: Given the mission and the authority in the scientific community and practice, ODC has placed as one of its goals to help organization design science to establish and further develop the organizational design knowledge base. For this reason, a new service will soon be added to the existing ODC website by publishing information of the type listed below for the community to utilize:
This endeavour will be led by Ana as the Head of ODC Knowledge Resources. Ana is an Associate Professor of Organization and Management at the Faculty of Economics, University of Belgrade.
Please contact Ana if you have information on resources that you find relevant to share with the members of the Organizational Design Community: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to this initiative being fully implemented on the ODC website.
