Introducing the New IOP Practice Forum – Call for Papers

With the December 2016 issue, the IOP journal is introducing a new Practice Forum, designed to help advance the effective practice of industrial-organizational psychology through practitioner-oriented articles. This forum will give practitioners an outlet for communicating and/or learning about various practice-related issues.

Various types of articles will be considered for the forum; for example, a case study of an I-O practice intervention, commentaries/critiques on a practice-related service or topic, review of evidence-based best practices for a practice area, discussions of challenging or emerging practice issues with calls for more research, or description of practice-related challenges experienced and how those were overcome.

Submissions will be evaluated on the clarity and quality of the article, contribution to the advancement of I-O practice, relevancy and appropriateness for the forum, originality/creativity of the submission/practice intervention, and effective integration of science with practice.

The goal is to publish one practice forum article for each issue of IOP. Please visit http://www.siop.org/journal/PFGuidelines.aspx for more information about submission and review guidelines. Submissions may be sent directly to Mark Poteet at mlpoteet@verizon.net.


Two focal articles are now available for Volume 11 Issue 1 of the journal.
