Calls for Papers

Wanted: Unpublished Studies on Microaggressions and Their Relationship to Well-Being

We are graduate students at Texas A&M University conducting a meta-analysis on microaggressions and their relationships with psychological well-being (e.g., anxiety, depression, stress), physical health (e.g., cardiovascular health) and job outcomes (e.g., performance, turnover, job satisfaction) under the supervision of Kathi Miner. As part of this process, we are reaching out to researchers who may have conducted any relevant research on this topic. We are especially interested in unpublished works due to concerns about publication bias. We are asking if you would be willing to share any articles, conference papers, or data you may have on race, gender, or sexual orientation microaggressions that includes:

  • Demographics (i.e., gender, race, and/or sexual orientation, mean age, occupation)
  • Sample size
  • Correlation tables and reliability of scales used (could be presented in the diagonal)
  • Type of scale used to measure microaggression and its source

Please send any relevant materials to Paula Costa at plc339@tamu.edu. We appreciate anything you may have and thank you in advance for your time.

Deadline for submitting materials: December 31, 2017

Special issue call for papers from Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: Advancing Research on Selective Incivility toward Devalued Groups in Organizations

Guest Editorial Team:

Dana Kabat-Farr, Dalhousie University
Lilia Cortina, University of Michigan
Isis Settles, University of Michigan

Incivility seems to permeate our work lives, manifesting in experiences such as being ignored or disregarded, being excluded from professional opportunities, or having your judgement unfairly questioned over a matter for which you are responsible. Research over the past 20 or so years has started to document the prevalence, costs, and correlates of incivility, finding that targets suffer personally and professionally and that organizations face financial and productivity loses.

While we have made great strides in understanding general experiences of incivility, less attention has been paid to how these experiences affect those with stigmatized identities. In 2008, Cortina introduced the concept of selective incivility to describe how subtle, ambiguous acts of rudeness may function as a covert manifestation of bias against devalued, stigmatized, or marginalized people in organizations. Such biases may be based on one, or multiple, identity groups such as gender, race, ethnicity, minority sexual orientation, minority religion identification, immigrant status, transgender identity, disability status, language, or accent.

Initial research in a test of this theory found disproportionate uncivil treatment may provide an explanatory mechanism for the lower rates of women and racial minorities found in the upper echelons of organizations (Cortina et al., 2013). However, not all research finds increased risk of incivility for stigmatized groups (see Welbourne et al., 2015; Kern & Grandey, 2009), leading to important questions regarding contextual and individual moderating factors. The purpose of this special issue is to foster constructive insights into the selective incivility phenomenon.

Paper submissions accepted March 1, 2018 – May 1, 2018.

If you have any questions, please contact Dana Kabat-Farr (kabatfarr@dal.ca).

Call for Papers – Special Issue: Work and the Multitude of Age Constructs

"Research has demonstrated that chronological age is only weakly, if at all, associated with important work-related outcomes, such as performance, job attitudes, and occupational well-being. Therefore, organizational researchers have argued that it is important to “move beyond chronological age” and investigate alternative age constructs, such as perceived, subjective, and relative age, as well as functional, psychosocial, organizational, and lifespan age. Based on research in the gerontology and lifespan developmental psychology literatures, it is often assumed that these alternative age constructs predict work outcomes better than chronological age. However, so far very few empirical studies have examined the content, construct, and predictive validity of these alternative age constructs. Moreover, most research in this area has relied on cross-sectional, single-source designs and neglected potentially important confounding variables (e.g., health, work ability, core self-evaluations). The purpose of this special issue is to advance knowledge of the multitude of age constructs through innovative conceptual, methodological, and empirical contributions."

Papers are due: December 31, 2017

Call for Papers: Relationship-based leadership: Current trends and future prospects

Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology

Submission Deadline: 1 April 2018 


Relationship-based approaches represent one of the dominant perspectives to understanding organizational leadership. There are many different perspectives under this broad umbrella including focusing on the exchange relationship between leader and followers, how the leader–follower relationship develops and changes over time, the relationship between a leader and a team, the effects of differentiated relationship quality within a team, and how the leader–follower relationship impacts wider organizational processes. What is central in these different perspectives is the concept of the ‘relationship’ that occurs between different individuals. Despite the interesting paths that relationship-based theories have opened up, there are many issues that require attention (such as understanding how leader–follower relationships develop and are maintained over time). Given the above, it is important to revisit the concept of ‘relationship’ between leaders and followers, take stock of progress made, identify research gaps, as well as borrowing ideas from other scientific fields to further stimulate discussion on relationship-based leadership perspectives and open new and exciting avenues of research.

For enquiries related to this special issue, please contact the Guest Editors: Robin Martin (University of Manchester, robin.martin@manchester.ac.uk), Olga Epitropaki (University of Durham, olga.epitropaki2@durham.ac.uk), Berrin Erdogan (Portland State University, berrine@pdx.edu), and Geoff Thomas (University of Surrey, geoff.thomas@surrey.ac.uk).

Effectiveness and the Measurement of Organizational Change

This call for papers is for chapters related to addressing two related issues, how to evaluate the effectiveness and utility of organizational change interventions and the development of methods to better present this information to organizational managers. This call is for a volume in the Research in Organizational Sciences series published by Information Age Publishing entitled Effectiveness and the Measurement of  Organizational Change (Daniel Svyantek, Ed.).

Good evaluation efforts provide data on how to fine-tune ongoing change efforts to improve the effects of these efforts and allow the practical significance of organizational interventions to be defined (i.e., the organization knows whether the intervention led to positive changes affecting the bottom-line).  The goal of this volume is to explore the relationship between change processes, change efforts, the organizations in which these change efforts occur, and good evaluation methods.  This volume seeks chapters which explore how evaluation methods on may be used to provide organizations with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their own internal processes and the value of interventions that are being conducted.  These chapters may be conceptual or empirical in nature.  Empirical chapters using quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods of evaluation are welcomed. We particularly encourage collaborative articles written by those in academia and corporations to better inform readers on this topic.

Individuals may send a 1-2 page proposal to Daniel J. Svyantek (206-B Thach Hall, Auburn University, Auburn, AL  36849-1234, svyandj@auburn.edu) by mail or electronically by August 15, 2015. Authors with accepted proposals will be notified by September 1, 2017. If your proposal is selected, we will need your finished chapter by November 1, 2017. Individuals with questions about this volume may contact the editor via email.
