Recent Offerings From the SIOP Professional Practice Series

Nancy Tippins

The Professional Practice Series is intended to provide current information regarding science and best practices in a variety of industrial and organizational psychology topics. In each volume, the reader will find guidance and insights that are firmly grounded in science as well as advice on how to apply the concepts, findings, methods and tools to organizational problems. The series is designed to meet the needs of a broad audience of practitioners, including industrial and organizational psychologists, organizational scientists and practitioners, human resources professionals, managers, executives, and others interested in organizational behavior and performance.


Past volumes in the series have typically been edited volumes focused on a particular topic. Several have included case studies that highlight how science has been put into effective practice in a particular organization.

  • Using Experience to Develop Leadership Talent: How Organizations Leverage On-the-Job Development edited by Cynthia D. McCauley and Morgan W. McCall, Jr.
  • Advancing Human Resource Project Management edited by Richard J. Klimoski
  • Diversity at Work: The Practice of Inclusion edited by B. M. Ferdman and B. R. Deane

In 2016, SIOP contracted with a new publisher for the Professional Practice Series, Oxford University Press (OUP). The Professional Practice Series Editorial Board is excited about this new relationship and the opportunities for marketing the Professional Practice Series books to a broader audience. In addition, OUP has encouraged the editorial board to explore types of volumes other than edited ones and different formats that better serve the needs of potential readers.


Although no new volumes are officially under contract, several are well underway:

  • The Practice of I-O Psychology: Current Practices and Applications in Organizational Settings edited by Rob Silzer and Wally Borman
  • Becoming a Talent Magnet: Lessons From the Field on Attracting and Recruiting Great People edited by Mark Morris


In addition, Will Shepherd is developing a volume on employment value proposition, and Bill Macey and Alexis Fink have agreed to write a new volume on current survey practices. The board is also developing other ideas for new books on a variety of other “basic” I-O topics, including the following:

  • Performance management
  • Training and development
  • Teams
  • Organizational development
  • Getting from individual performance to organizational results: Multilevel strategies
  • Personality assessment


The Board welcomes your ideas for new topics.
