Rigorous quantitative, qualitative, field-based, and lab-based empirical studies are welcome. Interdisciplinary scholarship is valued and encouraged. Submitted manuscripts should be well-grounded conceptually and make meaningful contributions to scientific understandingsand/or the advancement of science-based practice.

The Journal of Business and Psychology is

- A high quality/impactful outlet for organizational science research

- A journal dedicated to bridging the science/practice divide

- A journal striving to create interdisciplinary connections

In addition to publishing high quality research on a regular basis, every year we will have a special feature edition. For example,

a. A “State of the Practice” edition. This edition would have about 12 pieces (around 3000 words each), typically written by well-known scientist-practitioners. Each peer-reviewed piece would discuss best practices in a particularpractice area that are extremely relevant in today’s business world (e.g., Succession Planning; High Potential Identification). In addition, and most importantly, the piece would discuss the type of research that is needed tohelp in this area from a practice perspective. This would hopefully promote our science/practice ideals and further support the notion of evidence based management.

    This special issue follows a paper recently published in the Journal of Business and Psychology (Dalal et al., in press). The goal of the current special issue, building on the recent paper, is to catalyze micro-, meso-, and macro-organizational science research on cyber security, privacy, and surveillance. We welcome submissions that emphasize knowledge transfer from organizational science to cyber security, privacy, and/or surveillance as well as submissions that emphasize knowledge transfer in the opposite direction.
