Leadership Journals from ILA

ILA publishes or offers its members many types of leadership journals; scroll down or follow these in-page links to learn more.

Leadership and the Humanities

In partnership with Edward Elgar Publishing, the ILA offers members free online access to the Leadership and the Humanities. This peer-reviewed, international journal is dedicated to advancing understanding of, research on, and applications concerning leadership. The journal publishes explorations of leadership from many disciplinary perspectives, including philosophy, ethics, religion, history, psychology, arts, literature, drama, film, ancient and modern languages, classics, communication and media studies, anthropology, political science, and sociology. Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. The journal welcomes studies of leaders and leadership in many different settings, in fiction and art, and across different times, places, and cultures. This may include studies of formal as well as informal leaders, and it may focus on followers, organizations, and the context of leadership, or on symbolic representations and depictions of leadership. Research that stresses the diversity of leadership across gender, race, class, religion, and age are encouraged.

The Leadership Quarterly

The ILA is officially affiliated with the The Leadership Quarterly, a premier leadership journal published by Elsevier. ILA Members receive free access to the online journal and substantial savings off print subscription rates (34% off the non-ILA member rate of $181). LQ brings together a focus on leadership for scholars, consultants, practicing managers, executives and administrators, as well as those numerous university faculty members across the world who teach leadership as a college course. It provides timely publication of leadership research and applications and has a global reach. 

Journal of Leadership Studies

In partnership with Jossey-Bass/Wiley, the ILA offers members free online access to the Journal of Leadership Studies.  Further, ILA members enjoy a discount of up to 33% off the cost of the print journal, should they choose to subscribe.  Launched in 2007, the mission of the Journal of Leadership Studies is to publish leadership research and theoretical contributions that bridge the gap between scholarship and practice and that exemplify critical inquiry into contemporary organizational issues and paradigms. The journal promotes interdisciplinary and interorganizational theory, fostering dialogue that transcends industry specific contexts and that explores leadership's role in improving organizational practices and human life. Published material in the journal includes research-based and theoretical papers that explicitly address leadership on various social, cultural, and organizational contexts. The journal incorporates contributions from business, non-profit organizations, government entities, education, and health care; however, the emphasis on leadership theory and practice spans the boundaries between these settings to promote discussions that center on human activity and interrelations. Accordingly, material published in the journal represents a wide range of methodological approaches and theoretical foundations of leadership.
