    We are honored to invite you to the "International Congress on Management and Organizational Studies on Blue & Grey Collar Workers", which has been scheduled to take place on September 10-12, 2022 in Ankara, Turkey at Başkent University.


    We are proud and grateful to announce that the editors of some well-known journals, such as "Human Relations", "Gender Work and Organization", "Expert Systems with Applications", "Intelligent System with Applications", "European Management Review", "International Journal of Business, Governance and Ethics", "International Journal of Business, Governance and Ethics.." etc. will contribute to the congress as Congress Scientific Committee Members.


    On behalf of the Congress Organizing Committee, we will be very happy to see you among us. Please note that your attendance, input and advise are vital for the success of our program which certainly will play an important role to fill the gap in academic literature and be a source of inspiration for young academics and researchers.


    Papers should be submitted to the relevant tracks (special interest groups), but those that are not related with the existing tracks should be submitted to the "General Track" of the congress.


    Three types of papers can be submitted to the congress:


    a) Theoretical papers: This type of submission should clearly highlight the gap in the relevant literature and should define blue & grey collar-worker-specific contingencies. It is expected from the authors to refer high impact journals for the theoretical construction of their study. The expected outcomes should be conceptual models, hypotheses, research questions or propositions.


    b) Research papers: Qualitative and quantitative research papers on blue & grey collar workers should aim at revealing specific conditions that can be more explanatory for this group of workers. Cross-cultural and inter-group comparative studies are especially important for the main theme of the congress.


    c) Methodology papers: Development of measurement tools specifically for blue & grey collar employees is a crucial component of this academic event. Authors can submit papers based on alternative methods of research, development of scales, and revision of current methodological assumptions.


    d) Case studies: The contribution of professionals who have practical experience is quite significant for the academic community. HR directors, union leaders, strategic level managers and line managers can submit papers presenting real cases in the business life. It is not expected from the professionals to establish a link between theory and practice.


    - Only full paper submissions are accepted.

    - Manuscript length should be between 4000-9000 words.

    - Each paper should be submitted to one track.

    - Identifying information about the authors should be removed from the manuscript for a proper blind review process.

    - The abstract should not exceed 300 words.
