One of the best ways to get involved in SIOP is to work on one of its several publications. SIOP is now soliciting nominations for the roles of TIP editor and several positions on the Publications Board. Continue reading to find out if one of these positions is right for you or someone you know!
TIP Editor: SIOP is now soliciting nominations for The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist (TIP). The new editor will be selected by the Publications Board and approved by the Executive Board in January 2013. The new editor-in-training would begin working with the current editor immediately after the announcement. The term for TIP Editor is for 3 years.
The purpose of TIP is to provide news, reports, and noncommercial information related to the practice, science, and teaching of I-O psychology. It is to SIOP what the APA Monitor is to APA. TIP publishes four issues per year (January, April, July, and October). The editor must be a SIOP Member or International Affiliate. Any SIOP Member or International Affiliate can nominate for the editorship. Self-nominations are also welcome. Nominations and/or self-nominations with appropriate submission materials outlined below should be sent via e-mail by November 16, 2012 to Allan Church (email@example.com), Publications Officer, SIOP.
Requirements for TIP Editor:
Nominees should have the following: (a) a broad knowledge of the goals and activities of SIOP members, officers, clusters, committees, and the administrative office; (b) knowledge of the trends and interests related to the science, practice, and teaching of I-O psychology, encompassing the opinions and interests of both teachers and students; (c) the ability to motivate SIOP members to submit articles, columns, and information relevant to members, (d) ability to identify and recruit subject matter experts who can contribute articles, columns, and reports; (e) ability to create new ideas for communicating news, information, and trends in I-O psychology; (f) knowledge of relationships between SIOP and external organizations (e.g., APA; APS; SHRM; Academy of Management; Federation of Behavioral, Psychological and Cognitive Sciences); and (g) the ability to coordinate with SIOP president, officers, committee chairs, executive director, and staff in administrative office. Prior editorial experience with a strong publication history is preferred.
The TIP editor serves a 3-year term, but the editor-elect works with the current editor for 4 months prior to assuming the editor’s role.
Nomination Submission Requirements:
Each submission should include an electronic version of the following:

- Three letters of recommendation from SIOP Members or International Affiliates.
If you are interested in serving as TIP editor, or if you know someone who might, submit the nomination to Allan Church (firstname.lastname@example.org) before November 16, 2012!
Publications Board: SIOP is also now soliciting nominations for the Publications Board. Several positions are currently available to serve a 3-year term with the board. The Publications Board is chaired by the SIOP Publications Officer Allan Church.
Three new members will be selected by the Publications Board and approved by the Publications Officer in October of 2012. New members would begin working with the current board immediately following notification of approval to select future candidates for SIOP publications as appropriate. The term for the Publications Board is for 3 years. Requirements for the board membership are as follows:
Nominees must be a SIOP Member or International Affiliate. The individual should have extensive experience with SIOP publications (either as ex-editor or widely published authors in SIOP outlets) and/or experience with professional journals and/or practitioner publications in I-O or related disciplines. The role of the Publications Board is critical in selecting future leaders of SIOP’s publications as those positions rotate through succession so experience is of paramount importance.
Self-nominations are also welcome. Nominations and/or self-nominations included with a full CV should be sent via e-mail by October 1, 2012 to Allan Church (email@example.com), Publications Officer, SIOP.
