Journal of Organization Behavior (KJOB)
Editor: Leigh Thompson

The Kellogg Journal of Organizational Behavior, or KJOB, is a online journal that publishes the abstracts of papers that are written by doctoral students in Management and Organizations.  Under the direction of Professor Leigh Thompson, students choose a topic and propose a research methodology for testing an organizationally-relevant question.   The best papers are then selected to be posted on this Web site.  Students are then encouraged to complete the research investigations -- i.e., to collect the necessary data to test their hypotheses.  Thus, the abstracts and papers that you may download from this Web site are research papers that are in the proposal stage, rather than the completion stage. If you would like any further information about these papers or would like to be notified when new papers are posted on the site, please contact the KJOB editorial assistant, at
