JMO Special Issue – Call for Papers
Authentic Leadership: 20-Year Review
Kevin Lowe, PhD, The University of Sydney, email@example.com

Deadline for Submissions: 30 June 2024
The most recent Special Issue on authentic leadership was published in Leadership and edited by Iszatt-White et al. (2021). Their focus echoed the times, following the critique by Alvesson and Einola (2019) and the subsequent exchange between Gardner et al. (2021) in The Leadership Quarterly, which set the scene for an impassioned critical retrospective of the shortcomings of authentic leadership theory. There was an appetite for this kind of work at the time but given the critical and backward-looking emphases of the Special Issue, it did more to encourage scholars to reconsider the merits of authentic leadership, than it did to advance the field.
