Overview: Technological advances are changing the ways we work giving rise to new organisational forms. Increasingly, the professions are co-opting digital platforms from various public and commercial providers to organise their core activities.

Topics could relate to leadership, policy, organisational improvement, among others. Bringing interdisciplinary thinking to the issue of digital platforms and the organizing of the professions this research has the dual goals of generating cutting-edge knowledge and real-world impact for a timely issue.
