Building Leadership Bridges (BLB 2001-2008)
Each year we publish original, peer-reviewed, never before published articles in an annual thematic volume. BLB captures the best contemporary thinking about leadership today from a diverse range of scholars, practitioners, and educators working in the field of leadership around the world. In keeping with the mission of the ILA, each volume connects different experiences, traditions, and ways of thinking about leadership in the modern world. Global Leadership: Portraits from the Past, Visions for the Future, the 2008 volume of our annual Building Leadership Bridges Series, the latest in the series, is now available.
The ILA is officially affiliated with the The Leadership Quarterly, a premier leadership journal published by Elsevier. ILA Members receive substantial discounts off both online and print subscription rates to the journal. 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.
In partnership with Executive Excellence Publishing, the ILA offers members free online access to Leadership Excellence, the monthly magazine devoted to Organizational Leadership. Each issue features 16 to 18 short articles authored by top executives, professors, trainers and consultants on seven dimensions of management and leadership: management, vision/mission, innovation/ change, competence, people, performance, and ethics.
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.
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.
