Journal of Professions and Organization – new subscription

We have a new e-journal subscription – Journal of Professions and Organization

Journal of Professions and Organization aims to be the premier outlet for research on professional organizations, including their work, management and their broader social and economic role.  It will focus on the organizational level but will still maintain a broad interest in professionals, the professions, professionalization, professional practice and relevant work-place issues. The journal is receptive to interdisciplinary perspectives and contributions, with strong interests in all professional organizations, professional service firms (PSFs), and public sector professionals (PSPs). While recognizing the importance of traditional professions, they welcome work on new professions, occupations claiming some professional status, and on knowledge workers more generally.
