    Dear colleagues, 

    We are editing the Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD) Special Issue on "Errors in Organizations: Exploring New Frontiers, and Developing New Opportunities for Theory, Research and Impact", with the submission deadline July 1- 30, 2019.   

    You can find a more detailed call for papers for this special issue in AMD site (see below):

    We call for this special issue to broaden current thinking on errors and to build a body of knowledge that is more visible, inspectable, systematic, and influential on organizational practice. We aim to stimulate cutting-edge empirical research that develops a deeper understanding of errors and that provides broader implications for organizations and society.

    Following the AMD mission, we welcome phenomenon-driven research that identifies and explores emerging issues and surprising relationships in the error context, provides a plausible explanation as to when and why such relationships occur, highlights new boundary conditions, helps to illuminate some promising paths for the integration of diverse disciplinary backgrounds and organizational and industrial contexts, and may even overturn basic underlying assumptions. We have no disciplinary preference and welcome papers from management, psychology, health care, operations management, sociology, economic, political science, and data science, among others.

    If you have any questions about the special issue and the submission process, do not hesitate to contact any guest editor listed below and in the call. Also, it would be appreciated if you can share this call with colleagues whose research focuses on errors in organizations and related fields.
