Bridging Research and Practice: Jean Bartunek Kicks Off the JABS Podcast Series

May 29, 2012 951

Dr. Jean Bartunek

We’re delighted to present the inaugural Journal of Applied Behavioral Science (JABS) podcast featuring Dr. Jean Bartunek, an associate editor of JABS and of the Academy of Management Learning & Education.

Dr.  Bartunek is the Robert A. and Evelyn J. Ferris Chair and Professor of Management and Organization at Boston College.  Her Bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology is from Maryville University (St. Louis), and her PhD is in social and organizational psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago.  She is a past president (2001 – 2002) and fellow of the Academy of Management.  In 2009 she won the Academy of Management’s Career Distinguished Service Award.  From 2008 – 2010 she was a visiting international fellow of the Advanced Institute for Management Research in the UK.

She has published over 125 journal articles and book chapters, as well as five books.   Her work has won “best paper” awards from JABS and Human Relations and was a finalist for a best paper award in the Academy of Management Review. She was previously a co-editor for the non-traditional research section of the Journal of Management Inquiry (1994-1997) and an associate editor of Advances in Qualitative Organizational Research (1998 – 2004).  She has also co-edited special research forums in the Academy of Management Journal (1993, 2001) and Academy of Management Review (2007, 2012).  She is currently serving as the Ethics Adjudication Chair for the Academy of Management.

Dr.  Bartunek’s commentary in the June 2012 JABS Special Issue: Studying Change Dynamics Using Qualitative Methods explains the journal’s role as a bridge from research to practice.

“Who’s the audience for the articles? Who is supposed to do something about their findings?  Unlike articles in general management journals that primarily address ‘managers’ or ‘organizations,’ the articles here were definitely addressed to change agents—all kinds of them, including change managers, facilitators, politicians, university extension agents and union leaders. The fact that change agents are being addressed may not seem like the biggest news flash in world history, but it does make clear that a journal like JABS is important because it often addresses a different audience than do many management journals.”
