Progress Report
Volume 3 is nearing completion. Issues 1 and 2 has been published. Issue 3 is in production. And commentaries for Issue 4 are being reviewed.
Issue 1: Morgan McCall on leadership development (with 10 commentaries) and Eden King and Jose Cortina on LGBT-supportive organizational policies (with 7 commentaries).
Issue 2: Cary Cherniss on emotional intelligence (with 11 commentaries) and Adam Meade and Scott Tonidandel on test bias (with 6 commentaries).
Issue 3: Ann Marie Ryan and Kevin Ford on changes in the professional identity of organizational psychology (with 10 commentaries); and Jeff Johnson, Piers Steel, Charles Scherbaum, Calvin Hoffman, Richard Jeanneret, and Jeff Foster on synthetic validity (with 9 commentaries).
Issue 4: Reeshad Dalal, Silvia Bonaccio, Scott Highhouse, Daniel Ilgen, Susan Mohammed, and Jerel Slaughter on increasing connections between IO psychology and judgment and decision making research; and Fritz Drasgow Oleksandr Chernyshenko, and Stephen Stark on the advantages of Thurstone’s approach to personality assessment. Each of these two articles have generated a high number of commentary submissions (24 and 16 respectively).
The journal continues to attract commentaries from U.S. and international authors. However, only one author of a Volume 3 focal article was from outside the U.S.  To improve this situation, I have secured a focal article for each of the first two issues in Volume 4 which is authored or co-authored by a non-U.S. individual.  I continue to work with the focal article authors and the reviewers of the articles to identify individuals in practice settings to personally invite to write commentaries. These efforts did yield slightly more commentary submissions from individuals in practice settings for the last two issues of Volume 3 (25% of the commentary submissions included a co-author working in a practice setting).
At the SIOP annual conference, Stephany Schings and I met with Bonnie Warren, our main contact at Wiley-Blackwell about continuing to market and increase the visibility of the journal. A campaign to have SIOP members recommend the journal to their libraries is underway. We also put in place plans to get the journal indexed in PsychInfo, ABI Inform, Scopus, and Business Source Premier; and included in ISI’s journal citation report. Bonnie has invited us to meet with the marketing group at Wiley to continue developing marketing plans for the journal.
