Decision-Making in Selection and Assessment: Implementing Evidence-based Practice and Exploring Innovations

International Journal of Selection and Assessment

CALL FOR PAPERS

Personnel selection was and still is the ‘Supreme Problem’ of applied psychology. The main question answered by studies on personnel selection is whether scores on tests and assessments predict work behavior. While this research is important, it does not answer the question if the better candidates get hired. This special issue will explore decision-making in selection and assessment procedures.

Call for Unpublished Data

Anonym 0 365 Article rating: No rating

I am seeking unpublished data on the association between mental health (e.g., depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc.) and workplace injuries (i.e., frequency, severity, or presence/absence) for a meta-analysis on the topic. 

If you have access to data that potentially captures these variables but are short on time, please send me a quick note and we can work something out when it is convenient for you. 

If you are able to share the raw data, please reply with an anonymized dataset and how you would like it to be cited. 

If you would like to share results from data which itself cannot be shared, I kindly request a few pieces of information: 
1. Effect size(s) (e.g., preferably correlation coefficients, but could vary depending on the nature of the variables [e.g., chi-square, OR, Cohen’s d may be more appropriate]) for the relationship between mental health and workplace injury indicators.
2. Measurement characteristics including 2.1) how the indicators were measured (scale, number of items, measurement source, length of recall used), and if applicable, 2.2) internal reliability of measurement. 
3. Study characteristics including 3.1) design (e.g., concurrent, longitudinal, case-control) and 3.2) context (e.g., field, residence, lab). 
4. Sample characteristics including 4.1) sample size, 4.2) mean age, and 4.3) % male. If available, any information on 4.4) industry/occupation of sample, as well as 4.5) minority-, 4.6) relationship-, 4.7) income-, and 4.8) educational-status would also be welcome. 

Participate in the UCL study on research practices in Social Science

Anonym 0 300 Article rating: No rating

Much has been discussed in recent years about research practices in the Social Sciences, yet factors that influence these practices remain largely unknown. To address this, Kyoo Kim and Prof. Ana Guinote (University College London, U.K.) have recently launched a survey as part of their pre-registered research project. They are trying to reach academics in social science who conduct empirical hypothesis testing studies.

Participants' honest and realistic answers will greatly help in identifying trends in research practices. The survey is simply an online based link, where all data will be completely anonymous and fully voluntary.
