The Journal of Management Studies (JMS) has issued a call for paper on “‘Theories from the Lab’: How Research on Science Commercialization can Contribute to Management Studies.” The special issue points to an important origin of the scientific knowledge and technology being commercialized – the research laboratory. And it connotes our belief that the science commercialization context can serve as a laboratory for researchers seeking to advance our understanding of key issues in management and organization studies.
The special issue will be edited by Riccardo Fini (University of Bologna, Italy), Einar Rasmussen (University of Nordland Business School, Norway), Johan Wiklund (Syracuse University, USA), and Mike Wright (Imperial College Business School London, UK). Deadline for manuscript submission is 30th September 2016. Find the full call for papers here.

We are editing a Special Issue of the International Journal of Manpower on “Human Resource Management and Public Service Motivation”. Public Service Motivation (PSM) is defined as an “individual’s predisposition to respond to motives grounded primarily or uniquely in public institutions and organizations” (Perry & Wise, 1990, p. 368). Given this definition, it seems reasonable that scholars have high levels of PSM. For example, the “commitment to public interest” dimension of PSM seems to correspond to the norm of communism (i.e., scholars share their work with their invisible college for the common good) in the Mertonian sociology of science. However, we still know little about the antecedents and consequences of PSM in higher education organizations. For example, how does PSM moderate the relationship between performance measurement and scientific misconduct? If you have ongoing work in this or closely related fields, please consider a submission to our Special Issue. You find the Call for Papers here.
