Ever wanted to edit a book series? Know someone who would make an excellent editor?

If so, then nominate yourself, or a colleague, for one of two open editor positions: SIOP Organizational Frontier Series and SIOP Professional Practice Series. Each editor will serve for a term of 5 years, and the positions are open to any SIOP Fellow or Member.

Nominations are being accepted until August 24, 2018.

Once selected by the Publications Board and approved by the Executive Board, the new editors will start working with the current series editors in December 2018, before assuming their duties in April 2019.Rich Klimoski is the incumbent editor of the Organizational Frontiers Series, and Nancy Tippins is the incumbent editor for the Professional Practice Series.

Below are brief descriptions of the editors’ requirements. Complete information on the positions and the nomination/application process was mailed to eligible nominators on March 9, 2018. If you would like the email resent, send your request to comms@siop.org.

Requirements for Organizational Frontiers Series Editor

It is highly desirable that the series editor be an experienced researcher who works in an academic or applied research position, for whom the conduct and application of research in the organizational sciences is a substantial component of their position. The series editor should also have a broad perspective of I-O psychology, including both its scientific base and the full spectrum of applications. If you are interested in serving as a series editor, or if you know someone who might be interested, submit your nomination, via email, to Neal Schmitt by August 24, 2018.

Requirements for Professional Practice Series Editor

It is highly desirable that the series editor be an experienced practitioner. Practitioners would include I-O psychologists in academic or applied research organization positions for whom applied practice is a substantial component of their position. That is, university faculty who devote virtually all their time to teaching, research, and service would typically not be recruited as a series editor unless their academic appointment was recent, and they had substantial practice experience in a previous position. Beyond being expert in particular practice areas, the series editor should also have a broad perspective of I-O psychology, including both its scientific base and the full spectrum of applications. If you are interested in serving as a series editor, or if you know someone who might be interested, submit your nomination, via email, to Mark Poteet by August 24, 2018.
