Outstanding Article of the Year

This award recognizes the individual or individuals for outstanding contribution to the OD Network’s professional publication, OD Practitioner

Award Purpose

This award recognizes the outstanding, substantive, research grounded article published in the Network’s professional, peer-reviewed, publication in the current year.

Since 1968, the OD Practitioner (ODP) has been fostering critical reflection on OD theory and practice and sharing applied research, innovative approaches, evidence based practices, and new developments in the OD field. The ODP welcomes articles by authors who are OD practitioners, clients of OD processes, Human Resource staff who have partnered with OD practitioners or are practicing OD, and academics who teach OD theory and practice. As part of our commitment to ensure all OD Network programs and activities expand the culture of inclusion, we encourage submissions from authors who represent diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious/spiritual practice, economic class, education, nationality, experience, opinion, and viewpoint. You will find the Guidelines for Authors here.
