SIOP Journal: “Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives on Science and Practice”

 
June 2011
Editor: Cynthia McCauley
  
 
Goals
 
1.     Produce four high-quality issues per year. Each issue consists of two focal articles accompanied by commentaries on topics of broad interest to the I-O field.
 
2.     Involve a mix of academically-based and practice-based authors and U.S. and international authors.
 
3.     Enhance visibility of the journal.
 
4.     Ensure a smooth transition from current to new editor (who will be responsible for the journal starting with the Volume 6).
 
 
Progress Report
 
Volume 4 is nearing completion. Issues 1 and 2 has been published. Issue 3 is in production. And commentaries for Issue 4 are being reviewed.
 
Issue 4.1: Rob Briner and Denise Rousseau on evidence-based I-O psychology (with 13 commentaries); Howard Weiss and Deborah Rupp (with 10 commentaries) on a person-centric work psychology.
 
Issue 4.2: Elaine Pulakos and Ryan O’Leary on why performance management is broken (with 12 commentaries); Berrin Erdogan, Talya Bauer, Jose Maria Peiró, and Donald Truxillo (with 8 commentaries) on overqualified employees.
 
Issue 4.3: Rob Silzer and Dick Jeanneret on individual assessment (with 10 commentaries); Ellen Kossek, Boris Baltes, and Russell Mathews on work-family research and practices (with 13 commentaries).
 
Issue 4.4 Lise Saari and Charles Scherbaum on the promise and perils of identified employee surveys; Michael McDaniel, Swen Kepes, and George Banks on concerns about the Uniform Guidelines.
 
Most of the article topics and authors for Issue 5 have been finalized and include:
·          Scott Tannenbaum, John Mathieu, Eduardo Salas, and Deborah Cohen – examines how teams are changing and whether science and practice are keeping up with these changes
·          Rob Ployhart – the psychology of competitive advantage
·          Katherine Holt – sorting through the competing “cultural competence” frameworks
·          Harold Goldstein – I-O’s narrow view of cognitive ability
·          Scott DeRue and Susan Ashford – what do we mean by “learning agility”
·          Deniz Owens, Stephan Dilchert, and Susan Jackson – the greening of I-O psychology
·          Fran Yammarino and Eduardo Salas – collective/shared leadership
 
 
Although commentary authors are primarily from the U.S., 11% of the journal’s published commentaries thus far in 2011 were authored by individuals currently residing outside the U.S. About two-thirds of the commentaries are authored by individuals currently in academic work settings. I continue to put effort into soliciting commentary submissions from practitioners, including special invitations, extended deadlines, and extra editorial assistance. The table below shows the sources of commentaries for each of the focal articles published (or in press) thus far in 2011.

In terms of journal visibility, Wiley-Blackwell engages in various marketing activities to make a broader audience aware of the journal, for example, e-campaigns to various email lists they maintain (with free access to one of the issues) and advertising in other journals they publish. The journal is included in the PsycINFO database (citation only) and the Ebsco Business Complete database (access to the full journal article for articles published at least one year ago). The journal has just been accepted for inclusion in the Web of Science (and thus in 2012 will be included in that database’s Impact Factor calculation).
