Journal of Leadership Studies Call for Media Reviews

JLS Call for Media Reviews

The Journal of Leadership Studies is looking to publish reviews of leadership theory, practices, and experiences outside of the boundaries of scholarship and formal organizational practice. The Journal presently publishes peer-reviewed research articles that address leadership inquiry from a social science perspective, as well as a symposium section that highlights invited conversation around topics in leadership theory, practice, and research. However, as leadership inquiry extends into other facets of contemporary life, we are seeking to expand the Journal’s capacity to represent manifestations of leadership that do not fall neatly into the conventional categories of scholarship.Read More

Symposium: Achieving Ethical Leadership

The Journal of Leadership Studies announces a Symposium special issue on Achieving Ethical Leadership. This Symposium will serve to elicit discussion about the state of ethics and ethical failures among leadership in the global community. Taking this further, we would like to encourage the generation of ideas as to how leadership scholars can help to mitigate this trend through improved ethics education, how to encourage improved ethical behaviors among leaders and stakeholders in multicultural settings and in different organizational contexts (business, non-profit, political, international), and through improved practices.

Suitable submissions might address the following topics:

  • What are the critical ethical and moral concerns in leadership today?
  • What steps and actions have been taken to overcome these ethical and moral concerns?
  • What role may we play as scholars in the effort to affect change in regard to ethical and moral leadership?
  • What solutions can be implemented to affect long-lasting and effective change in the world of business, political, and crosscultural
  • What innovative practices can be implemented through ethics education, organizational culture, improved leadership
    screening practices, or other unique ways to help mitigate the trend of unethical leadership and encourage stronger ethical leadership?
