Abstract

Publishing is an industry, and a very competitive one. Today more than ever, academic journals strive to be recognized as the most influential in their area, and this is shaped by somewhat strange, and often perverse, measures such as citation indexes and impact factors. Organization Studies plays this game: to be read, to spread the ideas expressed in the articles we publish; as well as to broaden the scope of our readership and to make sure that the most influential scholars and institutions see the journal as a key player and a necessary outlet for great research.
