    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.

    In line with the 2017 ODC Annual conference, this JOD Thematic Series explores the role and form of hierarchy in organizations, especially in novel modes of organizing such as collaborative communities, commons-based peer production, temporary innovation networks, and boss-less organizations.

    The deadline for the submission of papers is January 15, 2018.

    Both conceptual and empirical papers are welcome, and papers may address any aspect of hierarchical and non-hierarchical organizations. Topics can include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • means and consequences of reducing or eliminating hierarchy
    • substitutes for hierarchy
    • decision-making and resource allocation in non-hierarchical organizations
    • experiments or agent-based simulation studies of non-hierarchical organizations
    • qualitative case studies of the evolution of novel modes of organizing
    • purpose and role of hierarchy in future organizations
    • relationship between hierarchy and organizational performance

    The Guest Editors for this Thematic Series are Stephan Billinger (University of Southern Denmark), Maciej Workiewicz (ESSEC Business School), Børge Obel (Aarhus University), and Charles Snow (The Pennsylvania State University).

    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:

    • Books that has appeared in the OD field;
    • Coming conferences;
    • Papers and book chapters to be published;
    • Projects ODC members are involved in and potential collaborators in projects

    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: anaa@ekof.bg.ac.rs

    We look forward to this initiative being fully implemented on the ODC website.

    Members of ODC are always welcome to contact the ODC administration office with ideas for projects to evolve and benefit the Organizational Design Community.
