The aim of Organisational & Social Dynamics is to further the integration of psychodynamic, systemic and group relations perspectives with the social sciences and humanities in the pursuit of understanding conscious and unconscious processes at work in groups, organisations and society. We welcome submissions from such fields as management and organisational studies, psycho-social studies, sociology, anthropology and philosophy. OSD is a forum for the publication of theoretical and applied papers that are relevant and accessible to an international readership. It aims to sustain a creative tension between scientific rigour and popular appeal, both developing conversations with the professional and social scientific world and opening up these conversations to practitioners and reflective citizens everywhere. We wish to attract manuscripts from contributors who are aware of their own values, suppositions and assumptions, the influence of counter-transference in their work, whatever form it takes, and the ability to connect the internal world of individuals and groups with societal and global processes.
In addition to scientific papers, Organisational and Social Dynamics also seeks to attract accounts of interventions, in the shape of reports of action research projects or case studies of consultation projects. It will also contain sections on speaking out, which will provide a space for personal ideas and polemic. In addition, Reviews, will provide a space for the review of books, plays, art and other cultural productions or events that are considered to be of interest as a result of the insights they provide into organisational and social dynamics.
The annual subscription includes two printed issues a year and includes complimentary online access from Ingenta Connect to current and past issues.
