SIOP White Papers Series
International Affairs Committee
One of the principle goals of the International Affairs Committee (IAC) is the publication of SIOP white papers on topics of interest to the international practitioner and academic I-O community. Three papers have been published and can now be downloaded from the links below.
The newest paper is entitled “Humanitarian Work Psychology: Concepts to Contributions” by Stuart C. Carr, Lori Foster Thompson, Walter Reichman, Ishbel McWha, Leo Marai, Malcolm MacLachlan, and Peter Baguma.
In 2011, Donald Truxillo, as past IAC Chair, began the development of the white paper publication process. We are pleased to welcome incoming IAC Chair Angelo DeNisi who will continue the effort moving forward. Lynda Zugec, as the White Paper Subcommittee Chair, will collaborate with the rest of the IAC Committee to ensure the development of the White Paper Series.
The newly created IAC White Paper Series Board (Stuart C. Carr, John C. Scott, and Soo Min Toh) will identify and review new topics for papers in the white paper series, so keep a look out for these!

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.
