Over its 30 years of existence, Organization Studies has embodied three enduring themes, namely: a desire and respect for diverse theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches; a concern with the study of organizations, organizing, and the organized in and between societies; sustaining an interdisciplinary range. These three interrelated themes constitute the core identity ofOrganization Studies and EGOS—indeed, constituting the idea of a distinctive European identity. The paper traces how these themes have survived as the field of academic scholarship and publishing in organization andmanagement has changed, in particular: the emergence of international business school ranking systems; the development of the US Academy ofManagement into a more and more international body; and even greater influence or hegemony of the United States in organizational and management scholarship.
