OTHC invites abstracts from health care organization researchers. Priority will be given to submissions from junior faculty, but we also welcome submissions from doctoral candidates and others with an academic affiliation. Submissions on all topics are considered, with strong preference shown to topics that directly integrate and contribute to organizational theory. Submissions that are not selected for a live presentation will be considered for a poster presentation, another key part of the conference. Research using qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods is welcome. Theory development submissions are also welcome, but should offer an original contribution to theory, going beyond background literature reviews or syntheses.
The 2021 conference will be held online with an abbreviated agenda. Approximately four papers will be selected for virtual podium presentation based on peer review. Accepted papers must be completed by May 10th. A larger number of abstracts will be selected for a virtual poster presentation, with a format currently in development.
If you would like to present your research at the conference, please submit a structured abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org following the guidelines below.
