Call for Papers: Psychology, Law, and the Workplace

Law and Human Behavior invites manuscript submissions for a special issue focused on psychology, law, and work. Plans are for the issue to contain several categories of articles, including:

  • Empirical investigations of psychological issues that arise when the law and work intersect, including but not limited to issues related to employment discrimination, affirmative action, personnel selection, and criminal behavior in the workplace.
  • Reviews of empirical research on the psychology of employment litigation or criminal behavior in the workplace. Reviews should include clear descriptions of (a) ways in which the research can or should inform the resolution of legal issues involving the workplace, and (b) directions for further research and suggestions for paradigms by which this research could be accomplished.
  • Descriptions of important or newly emerging legal issues related to the workplace or employment. Descriptions should include suggestions for the types of research that could be used to inform policy or practice in these areas and, whenever possible, suggestions for paradigms by which this research could be accomplished. These manuscripts are likely to be briefer than those in the other two categories.

Contributions from any area of psychology (e.g., clinical, cognitive, industrial-organizational, social) are welcome. Collaborative efforts between psychologists and lawyers are particularly encouraged.

Guest editor for this issue is Margaret Bull Kovera. Four copies of manuscripts, prepared for anonymous review, should be sent to Margaret Bull Kovera, PhD, Department of Psychology, Florida International University, University Park Campus, Miami, FL 33199.

Margarets e-mail address is Margaret.Kovera@fiu.edu. Manuscripts should be received by November 1, 2002.

Contributions from the National Studies of the Changing Workforce

Guest Editors: Shelley M. MacDermid, Ellen Galinsky,
and James T. Bond

The Center for Families at Purdue University and The Families and Work Institute are collaborating to edit a special issue of the Journal of Family Issues. Submissions are due December 1, 2002.

The 1992 and 1997 National Studies of the Changing Workforce are the first detailed examinations of work and family issues with nationally representative samples in almost 2 decades. These data sets now are available to researchers for analysis.

The special issue will publish original empirical contributions addressing gaps in the workfamily literature. Such gaps include but are not limited to:

  • Issues related to the aging of the populationexperiences with caregiving, policies and programs related to elder care, and the issues of older workers
  • Studies of groups underrepresented in existing research (e.g., low-wage workers, single parents, ethnically and culturally diverse workers, and workers who work in small workplaces)
  • Links among work conditions, marriage, and parenting
  • Studies designed to test specific propositions from recent theories

Manuscripts must include analyses of one or both of the National Studies of the Changing Workforce. Analyses conducted for the special issue should be firmly grounded in theory and those connections should be explicitly articulated. Analyses should not duplicate those already reported by the Families and Work Institute.

Each paper will be blind reviewed by at least two reviewers. Manuscripts should be no more than 25 pages long including all references, tables, and figures, and should follow APA guidelines. Submit 4 copies of manuscripts to Shelley MacDermid, The Center for Families at Purdue University, 1267 CDFS Building, West Lafayette, IN 47907-1267.

For information about the special issue, contact Shelley MacDermid (shelley@purdue.edu). For information about acquiring data set(s), or existing analyses of the National Studies of the Changing Workforce, see the Families and Work Institute Web site: www.familiesandwork.org.
