Dear colleagues,

Journal of Management and Organization Studies (JMOS), while saying welcome to you with its fourth issue, complete its 2nd years. In this issue, we, while taking pride in being 2 years old journal, are unfortunately in the sorrow of losing our founder editor, Hüseyin Leblebici. Hüseyin Leblebici, other than lots of contribution he made to the field of management and organization in Turkey, led YOAD to come into existence and to get to this point by taking the role and responsibility of editorship. We remember him with mercy and gratitude.

Journal Board of Directors gathered after Hüseyin Leblebici’s passing away and gave the task and responsibility of editorship to myself. Our desire, when we emerged as JMOS, was to be a well-regarded Turkish based journal that makes original contributions to the improvement of academic knowledge accumulation in the field of management and organization. As JMOS, we wish to be known that we keep being in an intense effort to accomplish this desire.

We have kept this issue, by which YOAD completes its 2nd year, limited to 3 articles as in the earlier issues. All the 3 articles, which are in the areas of business history, organizational behavior, and organization theory, carry potential to make contributions to the academic knowledge accumulation. The first article, written by Ahmet Sait Özkul, is on business history. In this article; teaching structure, curriculum, and course descriptions of the commerce school, as the first school that gave commerce education in Higher Education System of the Ottoman, is studied between the years 1883-1916. The article is worthwhile to read with regard to understanding the traces and progress of business education in the historical process in the Turkish education. The second article is on leadership, which is one of the basic topics of organizational behavior field. This article, written by Çiğdem Vatansever, examining the autobiography of Turgut Uzer from his book titled Olymp and Mortals, provides a contribution to understanding how authentic leadership arises in different conditions. The article may take place among the ones that must be saved for those who are interested in authentic leadership. The third article of this issue is on institutional logics, which is one of the most studied topics in organization theory. In this article, the authorship of which is made by Mustafa Özseven, a complicated problem of institutional logics is investigated in the healthcare field. Özseven, in this article, examines how Turkish healthcare field evolves and takes shape in terms of (in)compatibility between the “substance of health”, which he put as field substance, and the substances of institutional logics, which appears to be influential in patches in the field. This article, while, on the one hand, giving an idea about the dynamics shaping Turkish healthcare field, on the other hand, carry a potential to be a source for those who want to understand the issue of institutional logics and substances.

As we complete our 2nd year, there are lots of our colleagues that we should thank. First of all, we express our respect and gratitude to our founder editor Hüseyin Leblebici again. Secondly, I thank the authors that make contributions to our journal with their manuscripts. Other thanks that I wish to make it to our reviewers who make valuable contributions by their comments and feedback in the process of evaluation of manuscripts that were sent to our journal this year.
