Series description

New Horizons in Managerial and Organizational Cognition (NHMOC) is a series of themed collections that bring to light emerging ideas, theories, methods, or application of MOC. Each book is a distinct project where the series editors engage with a guest editor to create a volume with a focal concept. Chapters can be conceptual, methodological or empirical in nature with a common objective to challenge our understanding and use of managerial and organisational cognition. A key objective of the series is to create space for authors with new ideas that challenge our horizons. A key objective is for each book to provide a platform from which scholars in the field can draw inspiration and engage with emerging ideas that are articulated through rigorous engagement with theory. The book format provides a flexibility to achieve this goal in ways journals papers cannot.

Chapters selected for inclusion in the New Horizons in Managerial and Organizational Cognition series will engage state-of-the-art applications of MOC-related theories. We encourage critical reflection and theoretical or methodological advances. We are open to both conceptual and empirical work, and to both qualitative and quantitative work. Chapters must present depth in cognition theory and where appropriate in the focal domain. We are also open to studies that advance knowledge through the application of an established cognition theory or method to novel domain contexts (where the primary theoretical contribution will be to the books focal domain); or contributions that advance knowledge of cognition theory or method utilizing the focal domain as a context (where the primary contribution will be to cognition theory/method literature). We strongly encourage prospective authors to be clear about these objectives and approaches as early as possible in the submission.

All books involve an open call for papers which is linked in the Upcoming books section on this page (while the call is open) and editors may also invite submissions. All chapters are subject to desk review by the editors and double blind peer review before publication.


These key topics are not exhaustive, and we encourage you to get in touch with the editorial team if you would like to discuss your proposal further.

With the aim of strengthening connections between academics, practitioners and policy makers, your proposal should bring new ideas on hot topics, emerging trends and issues in:

  • HR and organizational behaviour
  • Organizational structure dynamics
  • Management techniques
