The Organizational Ombuds Reader - Call for Article Nominations and Reviewers

The IOA Research and Assessment Committee will be developing The Organizational Ombuds Reader with an anticipated publication date during 2022.

Edited by Dr. Shannon Lynn Burton and Dr. Shereen Bingham, The Organizational Ombuds Reader is a collection and bibliography of the scholarly pieces considered to be the most influential in organizational ombuds practice published since the 1960s. The purpose of the Reader is to serve as a resource for ombuds scholars and practitioners wanting to learn more about the field.

We need YOU to make this Reader complete! As part of this initiative, Drs. Burton and Bingham are reaching out to ombuds colleagues, practitioners, and researchers far and wide with two requests:

1. Nominate scholarly pieces (journal articles, book chapters, and books) written on organizational ombuds practice to be considered for inclusion in the Reader. Any nominated piece should be considered by the nominator to be influential in your practice, thinking, or own research/writings. You may nominate more than one piece as well.

To submit a scholarly piece for the Reader, please complete our Google Form

Submit Now

2. Nominate yourself to serve as a Reviewer for the Editorial Board. The Reviewers will be assigned scholarly pieces to review and evaluate over a 3 month period, and the Editorial Board will use these evaluations to make the final decisions on which pieces will be listed as the most influential pieces on organizational ombuds practice and research.

To submit your self-nomination to be a Reviewer, please complete the following Google Form

Submit a Nomination

Nominations will be considered until November 1st, 2021. Thank you for your time and assistance with this valuable project. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either Dr. Burton or Dr. Bingham.

Best Wishes,
