SIOP White Papers Series
International Affairs Committee
One of the principle goals of the International Affairs Committee (IAC) in 2012-2013 was the publication of SIOP white papers on topics of interest to the international I-O community.
To meet this purpose, in April 2011, IAC Chair (Donald Truxillo) and White Paper Subcommittee Chairs (Lynda Zugec and Alok Bhupatkar) began the development of the white paper publication process with the rest of the IAC Committee. We were able to fulfill our goal and publish two white papers on the following topics: (1) Applicant Reactions by Talya Bauer, Julie McCarthy, Neil Anderson, Donald M. Truxillo, and Jesús F. Salgado; and (2) Retirement by Mo Wang and Beryl Hesketh. These white papers can be downloaded from the links below.
Special thanks to the White Papers Subcommittee of the SIOP International Affairs Committee for making our goals a reality: Lynda Zugec and Alok Bhupatkar (chairs), Doug Pugh, Gene Johnson, Stephanie Klein, Autumn Krauss, and Donald Truxillo.
Going forward, our newly created IAC White Paper Series Board (Barbara Kozusznik, Fernanda Afonso, and John C. Scott) will take the initiative to identify and review new topics that will form the basis of our next papers in the white paper series.

The purpose of the Hot Topics white paper series is to provide short briefs on high-interest topics in I-O. These papers are written with a non-I-O audience in mind, and SIOP members are encouraged to use these papers as a resource to share with clients, business partners, and others who are interested in learning more about a topic.
About: The Visibility Committee Hot Topic white papers are written by I-O PhD students and undergo reviews from both a committee member and an external reviewer who has expertise in the topic area. This work is managed by the HR/Business subcommittee of the SIOP Visibility Committee. The committee was created to enhance the visibility of I-O Psychology to inform thought leaders in business, HR, and government, as well as students and the general public, of the ways in which I-O can improve the profitability of business and the productivity and well-being of the workforce. The Visibility Committee is comprised of 6 subcommittees, each with unique goals related to promoting I-O: Branding, HR/Business, Media/Outreach, Metrics, Public Policy/Advocacy, and Students/Academia.
