Home / Research / CSOC Best Paper Award


The CSOC Best Paper Award was established in 2012. The aim of the award is to encourage ongoing development of the knowledge base for understanding organizations and organizational change, and to recognize scholarly excellence in developing new ways to apply psychoanalytic theory to the study of organizations. The award is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Organizational Change and funded in part by the Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri.

The 2015 Best Paper Award will invite original unpublished and unsubmitted scholarly work for submission (Papers presented at conferences are welcome). Papers may be either conceptual or empirical.

Papers will undergo a blind review and will be evaluated on the extent to which they are able to develop and elaborate theory, demonstrate creative methodology, and contribute to psychoanalytic organizational studies.

A formal call for submissions for the 2015 CSOC Best Paper Award will be published in the fall of 2015.
