International Journal of Selection and Assessment (IJSA)
Special Issue on Counterproductive Behaviors at Work
Employees can engage in a wide spectrum of counterproductive, disruptive,
antisocial, and deviant behaviors at work. These behaviors include, but are not
limited to theft, white collar crime, absenteeism, tardiness, drug and alcohol
abuse, disciplinary problems, accidents, sabotage, sexual harassment, and
violence. Such counterproductivity costs employers billions of dollars annually
worldwide. Additional resources are spent on attempts to forecast such
undesirable on-the-job behaviors at the time of hire, sometimes using
questionable methods. The objective in this special issue is to publish papers
that explore the prevalence, causes and consequences of counterproductive
behaviors in organizations. We seek submissions that will enhance our
understanding of counterproductive behavior at work and meaningfully contribute
to personnel selection and assessment practices in organizations. We
particularly welcome manuscripts that focus on the determinants of and
covariation among various counterproductive work behaviors so that effective
selection and assessment techniques can be developed and utilized. Specific
topics for the special issue may include: theories of workplace deviance, theft
at work, white collar crime, absenteeism and tardiness as dysfunctional
behaviors, substance abuse at work, workplace violence, sexual harassment, the
role of individual differences in disruptive behaviors at work, integrity
testing in organizations, and the role of stress in counterproductivity at work.
Papers on legal and ethical dimensions of counterproductivity and applicant and
other stakeholder reactions to organizational use of selection systems to curb
counterproductivity are also invited. Submission of theoretical work that
synthesizes and expands the existing literature as well as manuscripts that
provide empirical investigations on measurement and prediction are desired.
Consistent with the major aim of IJSA to promote international and
cross-cultural research of excellence on personnel selection, we especially
welcome papers that explore cultural influences on workplace counterproductivity.
Authors should follow IJSA instructions in preparing manuscripts. A
double-blind review process will be used in reviewing submissions. Please submit
five copies of manuscripts to the Special Issue's Guest Editor: Deniz S.
Ones, Department of Psychology, University of Minnesota, 75 East River Road,
Minneapolis MN 55455-0344; e-mail: Deniz.S.Onesfirstname.lastname@example.org.
Contributions should be received by September 30, 2000.
