Call for Papers
Law and Human Behavior

Law and Human Behavior (LHB), the official journal of the American Psychology-Law Society (APA Division 41), publishes original research and review articles about the relations between human behavior and law, our legal system, and the legal process. The incoming editor (Brian Cutler, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, SIOP member) enthusiastically welcomes submissions on I-O-law topics such as personnel section (e.g., affirmative action, disparate impact, sexual harassment, and expert psychological testimony), I-O issues unique to legal institutions (e.g., occupational stress and safety among police officers, attorneys, judges, and jurors), and criminal behavior in the workplace (e.g., theft and interpersonal violence).

LHB has been published since 1977 and currently has six issues per year. The journals ISI Impact Factor in the past 6 years has varied from 1.56 (2003) to 2.84 (2001). A study conducted at Washington & Lee Law School rankEd LHB in the top 25% of ranked law journals (http://law.wlu.edu/library/mostcited/index.asp). 

The incoming editor is implementing several changes to improve LHBs effectiveness (see http://www.ap-ls.org/publications/lhbarticlecutler.html). One of these changes is that LHB will soon join Springers On-Line First program. About 2 months after a manuscript is accepted for publication, it is published and made available online (not as in press, but published). Soon thereafter, it is published in a journal issue. This program allows us to get important research to the screens of readers with minimal publication lag. It will be possible for a manuscript to go from submission to online publication in 4 months (assuming the original submission is superb and requires no revision!).

Correspondence concerning LHB (including expressions of interest in reviewing manuscripts) should be addressed to Brian Cutler, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Incoming Editor, at lhb@email.uncc.edu.

Special Issue on Typical and Maximum Job Performance

Guest editors: Dr. Ute-Christine Klehe, Prof. Neil Anderson (Univ. of Amsterdam), and Prof. Chockalingam Viswesvaran (Florida International Univ.)

Human Performance is planning a special issue on performance under typical and maximum job performance conditions. To highlight the importance of theoretically innovative and empirically rigorous research on this performance distinction, this issue will consider papers that address any aspect of typical versus maximum job performance. Topics may include:

  • Theoretical models regarding the processes underlying performance under typical versus maximum performance conditions 
  • Moderators of performance under typical versus maximum performance conditions
  • The development of typical versus maximum performance over time (e.g., in the context of socialization, skill acquisition, career stages)
  • Use and consequences of typical versus maximum performance in personnel selection validation studies (e.g., in regard to criterion related or construct validity, utility)
  • Predictors of typical and maximal performance
  • Consequences of typical versus maximum performance conditions on performers cognitions, emotions, and behaviors (e.g., goal orientation, cognitive interference) 
  • Cross-links between the research on typical versus maximum performance and other research traditions (e.g., social loafing, choking under pressure, creativity) 
  • Countertheoretical consequences of maximum performance conditions (e.g., in relation to social desirability)

Other proposals for relevant papers are encouraged by the guest editors. Papers should be a maximum of 7,000 words in length, double spaced, and submitted in accordance with Human Performance guidelines. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed in accordance with normal journal policies and procedures. Thus, publication of any submitted manuscript cannot be assured in advance. Prospective authors must submit a 56 page summary of their proposed paper to the lead guest editor, as noted below. Authors will be notified promptly whether they should prepare full manuscripts for further review.

Call for Empirical Studies

To support a meta-analysis, we are asking for your help in compiling the most comprehensive set of published and, especially, unpublished empirical studies possible that include quantitative data on the perception of justice as a predictor or correlate of anger, violence, conflict, aggression, or the behavioral intentions for these dependent variables.

We are gathering these data for a meta-analysis that is part of an effort to identify variables that are important to include in computer simulations of individual and group behavior across cultures to make the simulations more accurate. The results of the meta-analysis will also be submitted for publication through a peer-reviewed journal and will therefore be available to the academic community as well as other applied users. 

Collecting a comprehensive data set is very important to the validity of the analysis, and we are hoping that with your help our reach can extend beyond the standard circles. We are actively seeking papers in languages other than English, and we will perform any necessary translations.

If you have work, or know of work, that would contribute to this analysis, please send it to Dr. Michael Silver & Dr. Eric Holder, Anacapa Sciences, Inc., 301 E. Carrillo St., 2nd Floor, Santa Barbara, CA, 93101; (805) 966-6157 ext. 11; e-mail: msilver@anacapasciences.com; e-mail: eholder@anacapasciences.com


Call for Research Participants

Seeking Executive Coaches! We are looking for executive coaches who are willing to be interviewed for academic/practitioner collaborative research on the active ingredients of executive coaching. If you have at least 5 years experience coaching executives and have worked with over 30 clients in relatively long-term engagements (i.e., 6 months or more), we would like to interview you and up to four of your new coaching clients to help determine which coaching activities have the greatest impact. This research is being conducted by David Peterson of Personnel Decisions International along with John Muros and Joyce Bono of the University of Minnesota. Only the University of Minnesota researchers will be aware of the identity of coaches who participate in this research. 

For more information, please contact John Muros at ldrcoach@umn.edu.
