Introduction to the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior This year marks the launch of the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behav- ior. This launch initiates what we believe will be an essential resource for those who study people at work. In this article, I would like to introduce this new jour- nal, provide a little background on its origin, and out- line what we see as our distinctive mission. Frederick P. Morgeson Michigan State University For over 80 years, Annual Reviews has published com- prehensive collections of critical reviews written by lead- ing scientists. It currently publishes 46 journals across numerous disciplines within the biomedical, life, physi- cal, and social sciences. Prominent among these journals is the Annual Review of Psychology, one of the highest impact journals in psychology. Each year since 1950, the Annual Review of Psychology has published a handful of articles in the field of industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology, organizational behavior (OB), and human resource management (HRM). Although these articles have been highly impactful, their focus has often been necessarily broad, and limited space has prevented more in-depth coverage of the full range of I-O psychol- ogy and OB/HRM topics. Recognizing this fact, the An- nual Reviews Board of Directors approved the creation of the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior, a journal devoted to publishing reviews of the I-O psychology and OB/HRM literature that will replace the limited coverage of these topics in the Annual Review of Psychology. The start of a new journal is, in part, a journey into the unknown. Although we are cognizant of the numerous outlets for review articles, none are published annually The Industrial Organizational Psychologist 125
