QUICK GUIDE: How to become a postmodern theorist - Probably a must read for authors to publish in JOCM

Return to JOCM index


 

JOCM HISTORY - JOCM was founded and first edited by Larry Pate in 1988. The price of the 1989 subscription for three issues was a quite reasonable $35 a year.  I (David Boje) began editing with Larry as a Guest Editor in 1989 for the Lou Pondy memorial issue.  In 1989, when MCB doubled the price to $75 a year, Larry and several board members resigned in protest. In 1990, I was not consulted when MCB once again doubled the subscription price to about $150/year.  In 1991, we went to four issues a year and MCB did precisely the same thing and raised the subscription to $300 or so without any prior warning to the editor or board members. In 1991 and 1992 I produced some initial special theme issues on Postmodern Theory and Storytelling as applied to change, and finished up some issues Larry had in the pipeline. I edited five issues a year until 1994 when we begain six issues a year. While the journal is too expensive for average mortals, it has continued to gain in academic stature. Of 120 MCB journals, I am told that we have the most hits on the web and I assume the most citations. And I see evidence that we are well cited in so-called tier one journals. Our acceptance rate has gone from 60% in the early 1990s to less than 9% in the late 1990s.  We have theme issues booked for the next two years (press here). Our editiorial board is comprised of the top scholars in the world (press here).

Why is JOCM so expensive? With a 1999 price of $3699, I have wondered how JOCM stays afloat. MCB bundles JOCM with other Human Resource journals to offer libraries, reduced package offers. They add up the individual prices listed below and give substantial discounts for bundles. Try as Larry did or as I continue to do, MCB is just not at all interested in individual subscribers, except for the likes of Bill Gates. Leadership and OD does have a reduced subscriber rate (see below). But, it is still quite out of reach to your average social science professor or student. The reality is the JOCM subscription price is now over 10 times the amount that Larry Pate resigned over and I continue to protest.  For interesting article on journal prices see http://www.nytimes.com/2000/11/03/business/03PUBL.html 

There are also curious and strange omissions in the on line MCB abstract lists. That is articles that were published that have been purged or otherwise vanished from the official data bases. This includes the entire anti-TQM special issue of JOCM Vol 6 1993 Issue 4. MCB assures me that this is an error and the abstract will be restored.  It was JOCM's First Anti-TQM Issue and circulates widely just the same.

Also, why is JOCM Vol. 9 1996 Issue 4 - Missing from MCB archives? MCB could add these to its archives to improve the quality of its holdings.  For some reason MCB has not put in the abstracts from the original 1988 issue. Larry and I have both asked for this.  

Finally, I notice that a piece I wrote that was critical of Nike Corporation has been deleted from the MCB index and no longer appears in the MCB search engine. Many scholars around the world study Nike (press here). Given the strict libel laws in the UK, puling the Nike article is, to them, sensible. I accept and understand MCB's decision. The UK, as I understand it, does not have FREE SPEECH in its constitution. The deicsion does, however, raise issues of academic freedom, and freedom of publishers from corporate influence (imagined or not).  The HTML and PDF files are still at MCB and can be accessed if you care to bother to check the codes of the other articles in Volume 11, issue 6.  

 

    "Nike, Greek goddess of victory or cruelty? Women’s stories of Asian factory life" JOCM, Volume 11(6): 461-480 by David M. Boje. It was wiped from the index and search engine as if it never existed. Yet for now  the original MCB file is there in HTML (press here) and in PDF version (press here) float in cyberspace. But this article has been removed from MCB's official index but the files are still on line. I have my own humble on-line copy- (Press here) for my own personal pre-publication copy. . This is what article should look like if you could find it
 

One last item on Nike. While MCB and JOCM will never again publish an article with the word "Nike" in it, there are other journals that will.  There is an extensive list of journals publishing Nike articles in the Nike Research proposal I put together with 45 other academic scholars who want to improve the condition of some 600,000 workers (mostly young women) working in what many describe as sweatshop conditions. Nike executives are now reviewing the proposal. We have requested permission to work with a sample from the 700 Nike subcontractor factories and see if we can demonstrate that paying a living wage and providing human-friendly working conditions is cost effective as well as humane. Our idea is that once sweatshop managers realize that change is possible and perhaps more profitable than fighting losing PR battles, they will genuinely committed to change.  In the meantime, I continue to embarrass Nike into ending its sweatshop practices. Ending sweatshops was an action that unites figures as disparate as Frederick Taylor, Karl Marx and Adam Smith. Surely we can all agree that global corporations who can afford to pay sports celebrities $100 million dollar contracts can also afford the pennies it would cost for living wages. 

Finally, if you have a Nike article, I edit a journal called TAMARA: Journal of Critical Postmodern Organization Science.  There you will find a joint issue on Nike by TAMARA and CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON ACCOUNTING.  Finally, Academies such as Academy of Management, International Academy of Business & Society, and International Relations Research Association are sponsoring sessions on Nike (and others are pending). 

The last I heard, JOCM was in over 700 libraries and had an 80% international subscription base. This was several years ago and though I even went to the UK and asked directly, I have not received any update on the circulation figures for several years.  Over the years I have also repeatedly asked for a reduced subscription rate for individuals and for Academy and IABD association members. The answer is "no."  At $3699 times 700 libraries, not to mention all the package deals with other journals, JOCM makes at least $2,589,300 dollars a year. That is just from JOCM. Consider that we are not the most expensive journal. In U.S. dollars as of September 30th, 1999 (press here):

Employee Relations Journal is $9759.00
European Journal of Marketing  is $7439.00
Industrial & CommercialTraining  is $7199.00
International Journal of Bank Marketing: For the financial services sector is $9979.00
International Journal of Manpower is $9699.00
International Journal of Physical Distribution & Logistics Management  is $9159.00
International Journal of Social Economics  is $7619.00
Journal of Economic Studies  is $6,999.00
Journal of European Industrial Training  is $9299.00
Journal of Management Development  is $7709.00
Leadership & Organization Development Journal  is $8699.00**
Library Management  is $8349.00
Management Decision is $8699.00
Marketing Intelligence & Planning  is $8749.00
Personnel Review  is $7999.00
      Note: Update- The Leadership and O.D. Journal  is now US$6,599 per year insted of $8,699. With a membership in The Organization Development Institute (price US$110), a one year subscription to The Leadership and O.D. Journal  is available for US$650

       

In sum, we are not the most expensive, but the price is beyond the average salary of an individual scholar and student. Many libraries do subscribe to MCB journals, including JOCM Libraries begin with the lure of a very reasonable 1989 $35 a year charge (in our case) which doubles until it approaches in a few more years, $4,699 and many are approaching the $10,000 mark. Being bureaucratic, it is not so easy for a library to drop a journal, so while the number of subscriptions for the cash cows drops off, the net result is massive accumulation of publisher wealth. U.S. libraries are particularly poor these days and have been weeding their collections. Thus, the 80% international subscription base for JOCM, plus the fact that our board is International in composition. MCB's strategic response has been to get into the virtual library market, by offering libraries on line access to a hundred MCB journals for say $20,000 (not an exact quote).  The thinking is that print journals are dinosaurs and virtual web and cd journals will overtake the market.  Indeed MCB's search engine will pull up topics from a wide array of journals with hot links to references. It is no doubt the way that scholarship will be conduced in transnational cyber-media publish or perish.

On the plus side, JOCM continues to be a strong journal, respected in its field with the best editorial board of any journal anywhere.  Copies of JOCM circulate in the academic community and theme issues are particularly well circulated in OD and Change Ph.D. seminars.  And MCB continues to support JOCM with annual best paper awards for the Academy of Managements, ODC division best paper aword, for the past eight years running.  And for the past several years, MCB has generously allowed editorial board members, reviewers, authors, and friends of JOCM to gather around some pizza at the annual meetings. In short, we get excellent support from MCB.

My Editor's vision - JOCM offers an alternative set of philosophies and critiques of change management, one not to be found in more managerialist-oriented journals. I am interested in particular in postmodern, including theatrics, large system or transorganizational development, storytelling, restorying, critical theory, and other areas not traditionally addressed in change journals.  I would like to see some comparative studies that would look for example contrast appreciative inquiry, Emery's participative democracy, and other approaches to change. In the past decade I have also worked hard to make JOCM an international and gendered journal. You can see this reflected in the make up of the editorial board.  We are strong supporters of the Consultation and Organizational Development and Change Divisions of the Academy of Management, as well as the International Academy of Business Disciplines. This year our critical postmodern track will deconstruct Las Vegas. Many of our editorial board members, reviewers, and authors attend these meetings so we can be more than a virtual community.  My vision in short is to help bring new philosophies and more qualitative methods to the scholarship and praxis of organization change.

JOCM THEMES - JOCM has established a number of unique themes that have shaped its identity in the past decade. Get to know us. When submitting articles please tie into one or more of these themes. They range from postmodern theory, critical theory, large system change, storytelling, spirituality, gender, diversity, voice, international change, environmental entrepreneurship, and critiques of such hallowed institutions as AACSB, TQM, and globalization.  You will also find pro and anti-TQM, and pro and anti-globalizaton themes.  Recent issues have been particularly critical of reengineering, mindless TQM, the excellence, market forces, globalization, and empowerment fads. At the same time, as editor I honor competing points of view and those who continue a dialogue begun in any of the earlier issues. To allow these critiques, debates, and emergent organizational change philosophies to continue, we invite you to search our databases. 

Several issues each year are organized around special themes. We continue to publish items that reference and extend these earlier themes.
