Aims and scope

The Journal of Participation and Employee Ownership (JPEO) is seeking to publish original empirical and theoretical research in the broad area of employee participation and shared capitalism. In particular, the journal is calling for rigorous analysis of: employee participation in decision making at the top and grassroots levels; high-performance, high-involvement work systems; cooperatives; employee ownership; profit sharing; team incentives; broad-based stock option; and other related management practices and human resource management policies.

Professor Richard Freeman, Co-Editor of JPEO, introduces the field and the journal.

The journal embraces diverse methodologies ranging from conventional economic analysis (including both econometric and theoretical studies) to new institutional economics (including qualitative analysis) to behavioural and experimental economics. The journal welcomes contributions from a wide range of disciplines, from economics to management science, sociology, political science, public policy, and all other relevant disciplines. 

The title will publish 15 papers across 3 issues from 2018, which will be made freely available throughout 2018 to allow greater visibility of authors’ work. The editors strive to ensure a reasonable timeframe from submission to initial review and final decision, while operating a rigorous double-blind peer review system. Once accepted, individual articles will be typeset, proofed and published online as the Version of Record within an average of 32 days.

High quality editorial board 

The journal is managed by a highly respected and experienced editorial team, which spans the globe and reflects the disciplines covered by the title.
