Emerald explores how to make organisations meaningful at this year’s AOM conference

Emerald welcomes all AOM attendees to stop by Emerald's booths 401 – 403

Boston, United States, August 1 2016 – Emerald Group Publishing will be exhibiting at the 76th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in California, August 5-9 2016. 

The Academy of Management(AOM) Annual Meeting is the premier conference for more than 10,000 students, academics, scholars, and professionals in the scholarly management and organization space.

Emerald welcomes all AOM attendees to stop by Emerald's booths 401 - 403 and meet the Emerald team. There they can find out about Emerald’s journals, discuss new journal launch opportunities, special issue proposals, editorial opportunities, or to talk over any proposals for an edited book or book series.

Emerald will also be hosting its annual Literati networking event during the conference, to celebrate the success of Literati award winners. The Emerald Literati Awards, which include the Awards for Excellence and Citations of Excellence, are now in their 23rd year and were established to celebrate and reward the outstanding contributions of authors and reviewers to scholarly research. The networking event will take place at the Anaheim Marriott, Marquis Northeast Ballroom on Sunday 7 August 2016, 7-9pm. 

Several ‘Meet the Editor Sessions’ are taking place on Friday 5 August, where authors and academics can discuss ideas or proposals relating to topics including: the Research and Practice in Business & Society; the Changing Context of Managing People; the Research in Critical Management Studies. Appointments with the commissioning editors, Zoe Morris and John Stuart, are also available. 

This year’s conference theme is ‘Making Organisations Meaningful’ - and to mark this, Emerald got together with one of the Co-Editors of the journal Management Decision to hear his thoughts on the theme. The interview can be found on a dedicated landing page.

The landing page also hosts 10 carefully selected papers of Emeralds most meaningful content, completely free for delegates until 25 August 2016. 

Zoe Morris, Commissioning Editor, said:  “The theme of this year’s AOM conference is an incredibly interesting one. Organizations occupy a central role in the ways we live our lives - they enable us to be more efficient, to access goods and services faster than ever before, and to share information and experiences across the globe. I am therefore very excited to explore this extremely important theme further.

“I am also thrilled that our annual Literati Networking event will be taking place at this year’s conference. It is a fantastic way to celebrate our accomplished authors, while also discussing and discovering new topics and proposals.”
