Abstract

Three decades! Founded in 1980, Organization Studies is, today, an established and important fixture of the intellectual landscape. For some, it seems only yesterday that the journal made its initial, bold appearance as the official publication of EGOS, itself a (then) relatively recent creation. Both the journal and EGOS were relatively late entrants to the field, at least compared to the US-based Academy of Management (founded in 1936) and the Academy of Management Journal, which appeared in 1958. Organization Studies is also of recent vintage compared to European journals such as Human Relations (which first appeared in 1947) and the Journal of Management Studies (1963). Much has changed in these three decades and this Special Issue celebrates the accomplishments of the journal by reflecting upon its current position and status, and, perhaps more importantly, upon the opportunities and challenges facing this and all journals in the field as it moves forward.
