ephemera is an independent peer-reviewed journal, which encourages the discussion of theoretical and political perspectives on all aspects of organisation(s) and organising. All content can be downloaded from the website. 

This is a time of unprecedented debate and diversity in organization studies, when intellectual reassessments go alongside a plurality of organizational forms and practices in a globalizing world. The central task for students of organization is to construct those analytical narratives and ethical discourses appropriate to the radically changing structural, theoretical and ideological realities we now face. Organization seeks to address this important task.
