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.

  • Call for Papers: Racism Against Black People in Organizations

    This special issue will highlight the history and current state of anti-Black racism in general organizational settings as well as in the specific field of organizational psychology (and related fields, e.g., management). It will also showcase empirical and conceptual work that provides evidence of the manifestation, effects, responses, and solutions to anti-Black racism. We seek submissions that develop provocative examinations of current theories or models, integrate findings and theories across multiple disciplines, and highlight underrepresented or under-researched ideas and perspectives that shed light on anti-Black racism in organizations.

    Guest Editors: Enrica N. Ruggs, Mikki Hebl  and Kristen Shockley
    Deadlines: 
    Proposals (when necessary) are due by September 21, 2020. Final paper submission deadline will be January 31, 2021.
