Wanted: Unpublished Studies on Job Crafting Interventions

We are doing a meta-analysis on job crafting interventions and are looking for unpublished studies. If you have any unpublished data on job crafting interventions (including a pre- and post- measure of job crafting, and/or other dependent variables), would you be able to share them with us? Pre- and post-intervention means and standard deviations would be perfect or any other data which can be used in meta-analysis to compute an effect size such as Cohen’s d (e.g. the results of ANOVAs).

If you have any data you’d be willing to share please contact Fangfang Zhang at the following email address: fangfang.zhang@curtin.edu.au.

We very much appreciate your help!

For more information, contact Caroline Knight, Research Fellow, Centre for Transformative Work Design, Future of Work Institute, Faculty of Business and Law, Curtin University, Perth WA, caroline.knight@curtin.edu.au.

2018 Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences

Broad Agency Announcement for Basic Scientific Research

Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) W911NF-18-S-0001 for the Foundational Science Research Unit of the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) solicits new proposals for its fiscal year 2018 program of basic research in behavioral science.  The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences is the Army’s lead agency for the conduct of research, development, and analyses for the improvement of Army readiness and performance via research advances and applications of the behavioral and social sciences that address personnel, organization, training, and leader development issues.  The basic research program supports research projects that are designed to expand fundamental knowledge and discover general principles in the behavioral and social sciences. 

A key consideration in the decision to support a research proposal is that its findings are likely to stimulate new, basic behavioral research which, in turn, will lead to improved performance of Army personnel and their units.  Proposals may address both traditional behavioral issues as well as psychophysiological (to include neuroscience) and network science approaches to social phenomena, memory, cognition, and personality.  ARI will not support proposals through this BAA that are primarily applied research projects (e.g., human factors studies or training program evaluations) or purely focused on physiology, psychopathology, or behavioral health.  Interested offerors are encouraged to submit white papers prior to submitting proposals. 

The full research announcement and application instructions for both white papers and proposals may be viewed at FedBizOpps, http://www.fbo.gov, or Grants.gov, http://www.grants.gov under opportunity number W911NF-18-S-0001. 

This Broad Agency Announcement closes on 15 June 2018.
