In this special issue, we aim to establish a stronger connection between research in applied psychology and workplace coaching by presenting a series of theoretically robust, empirically novel, research studies examining the antecedents, outcomes and processes associated with workplace coaching effectiveness. Therefore, the types of research design best suited for the special issue are pre-test-post-test treatment design with control group, meta-analysis, systematic literature review and conceptual papers. However qualitative papers and papers utilising emerging methodologies such as diary studies and multi-level studies will also be considered. Potential topics and research questions are included in the file attached.

 Applied Psychology: An International Review has an Impact Factor of 1.865 (2-year) and 2.415 (5-year, 2016 Journal Citation Reports (r). Thomson Reuters, 2016). It is ranked '3' on the UK Chartered Association of Business Schools Academic Journal Guide 2018 (ABS List), 'A' on the Australian Business Dean's Council Journal Quality List 2016 (ABDC list) and 'B' on the German VHB-JOUQUAL 3.

This special issue will see the first collection of publications on coaching in a high ranking journal. We are looking for papers that demonstrate extremely high levels of theoretical and methodological rigour in developing and advancing our understanding of how and why coaching works.

Please share this call for papers widely within your network.

Any questions regarding the special issue should be directed to either myself or my co-editor, Dr Rebecca Jones (r.j.jones@henley.ac.uk).
