Journal of Organization Design (JOD) is an online open access journal aimed at publishing high- quality papers in the field of Organization Design. The journal is published by the Organizational Design Community (ODC), with ICOA researchers both as founding members, members of the board of directors, part of the editorial team and office.

JOD has published 39 papers in the first six issues, and with more than 130,000 combined abstract, article, and video views in the first two years (index statistics excluded), the journal is building a strong foundation with many high-profile articles. For a few examples, please see a small selection of the most read articles: The Evolution of Enterprise Organization Designs by Jay Galbraith, Design of Industrial and Supra-Firm Architectures: Growth and Sustainability by John Mathews, Open Innovation and Organization Design by Michael Tushman, and Designing the Organization for User Innovation by Peter Keinz, Christoph Hienerth, and Christopher Lettl. Readers are welcome to dig deeper into the journal archives here.

JOD has an editorial structure composed of (a) Co-Editors Børge Obel (ICOA, Aarhus University) and Charles C. Snow (Penn State University); (b) Associate Editors Richard M. Burton (Duke University), Dorthe Døjbak Håkonsson (ICOA, Aarhus University), Samina Karim (Boston University), Peter Klaas (WTT A/S), and Phanish Puranam (INSEAD); and (c) a distinguished Editorial Board. Manuscripts are reviewed in a double-blind review process by at least two reviewers. A short but meticulous review process is of great importance to JOD.

JOD provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Furthermore, an open access article stands a greater chance to be used and cited than does one published behind the subscription barriers of a traditional academic journal.
