About the Journal
Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, published six times a year by APA, publishes theory, research, and public policy articles in occupational health psychology, which concerns the application of psychology to improving the quality of work life and to protecting and promoting the safety, health, and well-being of workers.
The journal has a threefold focus: organization of work, individual psychological attributes, and work–nonwork interface in relation to employee health, safety, or well-being. The journal seeks scholarly articles from both researchers and practitioners.
Special attention is given to articles with a prevention and a promotion emphasis, including consideration of the financial costs and economic benefits of prevention and promotion programs evaluated. Manuscripts dealing with issues of contemporary relevance to the workplace, especially regarding the unique challenges of occupational safety, health, and well-being experienced by minority, cultural, or occupationally underrepresented groups, or topics at the interface of work and nonwork, are encouraged.
