5th Biennial EO/EEO Research Symposium
Patrick AFB, FL, February 1718, 2005

Announcement and Call for Papers & Presentations

The directorate of Research and the Research and Evaluation Committee of the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) are proud to announce the 5th Biennial EO/EEO Research Symposium, to be held February 1718, 2005 at the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, Patrick Air Force Base, Florida (located 5 miles south of Cocoa Beach, Florida). This symposium continues a tradition begun in 1994 of providing a valuable outlet for legitimate research concerning military EO/EEO issues and an opportunity for discourse on these important issues. The symposium serves to encourage behavioral scientists, both within the military and outside the Department of Defense, to conduct and report research on military EO/EEO issues. Research topics include (but are not limited to) racism, sexism, extremism, anti-Semitism, sexual harassment, religious diversity, climate analysis, discrimination perceptions, diverse work groups, leadership and diversity, discrimination, job satisfaction, disability, ageism, and EO in a war environment. 

Papers. Papers should be submitted by November 30, 2004. In general, we are seeking empirical papers; however, nonempirical papers contributing toward theory or practice within the field will also be considered. The submitted papers and proposals will be reviewed (by committee) for scientific merit and quality, and authors whose works are selected for the program will be notified by December 15, 2004. The selected submissions will be grouped, based on the relatedness of their topics, into presentation sessions of (at most) 45 papers. Each session will last an hour and 20 minutes, with a 10-minute break between sessions. Depending on how many papers we receive, the number of sessions and number of papers in each session may vary. The final schedule will not be determined until mid-January 2005 (after all papers have been reviewed). We plan not to schedule in the late afternoon or evening unless we are overwhelmed with presenters. We want to allow time for professional conversation and dialog.

Invited panels and presentations. In addition to the paper sessions, we envision having several invited panels and/or presenters to discuss more general research issues. For example, we might have a DEOMI research panel, a climate survey (such as the Military Equal Opportunity Climate Survey- MEOCS) panel (to include a field commanders perspective), an international panel (to discuss relevant EO/EEO in various countries), and a DoD EO panel to discuss the general status and needed directions of EO research in the military. Invited speakers will be chosen based on their history of accomplishment in the field and current research contributions. All invited panels and presentations must submit their material by December 15, 2004.

Poster sessions. Proposals for poster sessions should be submitted by December 15, 2004. Depending on the number of posters accepted, there may be several poster sessions in the early evening hours. During the sessions, researchers will stand by their posters to explain their ongoing research and answer questions.

Publication. Paper and panel/poster abstracts will be published and made available to conference participants.
Paper/Presentation/Panel Formats. Please contact Mr. Scarpate at address below for specific guidance.

The final symposium schedule (ready about the end of December) and updated information will be posted on the DEOMI Web site: https://www.patrick.af.mil/deomi/deomi.aspx.

Call for Papers
Special Issue on Social Comparison Processes
Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes

Social comparison is a fundamental process by which people create meaning about social reality. Since the seminal work by Festinger (1954), research on social comparison processes has flourished in the organizational behavior, social psychology, and judgment literatures. These literatures fall within the domain of Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, which makes the journal an appropriate outlet for integrating and advancing research on social comparison.

The goal of this special issue is to create new theoretical and empirical understandings about social comparison processes in and around organizations. We invite papers that address gaps in the social comparison literature, such as:

1. Initiation. What prompts people to conduct social comparisons?
2. Referent selection. How do people choose referents for comparison, and do different organizational or social settings evoke different classes of referents?
3. Evaluation. How do comparisons against various referents influence the evaluation of an object? How do people process information on multiple referents and manage conflicting evaluations from different comparisons?
4. Objects of comparison. How does social comparison apply to different objects of comparison, such as cultural values, learning, and organizational change?
5. Levels. How do social comparison processes at the individual level extend to group and organizational levels?
6. Context. Are social comparisons affected by context, such as work and nonwork settings and different cultures?
7. Method. What methodological improvements and innovations would enhance social comparison research?

This list of gaps is suggestive, not comprehensive. We are open to multiple perspectives on identifying new areas for enhancing our understanding of social comparison processes.

Manuscripts should be received by July 30, 2005. Instructions for preparing manuscripts are provided at http://authors.elsevier.com/GuideForAuthors.html?PubID=622929&dc=GFA. The issue has commissioned reviews of organizational behavior, social psychology, and judgment perspectives on social comparison, so priority will be given to papers other than reviews.

For more details, please see the July 2004 issue of the journal. Questions should be directed to Paul S. Goodman (pgoodman@cmu.edu), special issue editor, or Jeffrey R. Edwards (jredwards@unc.edu).

Call for Papers for a Special Section of 
Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology 

Beyond Positivism and Statistics: Neglected Approaches To 
Understanding the Experience of Work

The Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology (JOOP) is pleased to announce a special section addressing the issue of neglected approaches to understanding the experience of work. This special section will be guest edited by Gillian Symon (Birkbeck College) and Catherine Cassell (University of Sheffield). It is anticipated that the special section will appear in the September 2006 issue of JOOP.

It has been argued that occupational and organizational psychology has been dominated by natural science models of the research process and by measurement through surveys and statistical analysis. Past editors of JOOP have argued that the journal would benefit from publishing a wider range of relevant research work (West, Arnold, Corbett, and Fletcher, 1992; Sparrow, 1999)work which may have different underlying philosophical commitments and draw on different kinds of methods. As a contribution to this aim, this special section aims to publish a small selection of outstanding papers, which investigate the established and/or emerging topics of occupational and organizational psychology but from different epistemological positions than the traditional positivist/normative perspective, and utilising alternative methods to the survey instrument.

Papers for the special section could be in any of the recognised topic areas of occupational and organizational psychology (e.g., selection and assessment, performance appraisal, career development, organization development, motivation etc.) but must be empirical papers that adopt an alternative epistemological position (such as interpretivism, critical theory, or postmodernism, for example). Where occupational psychology might normally ask questions such as to what extent? or how does it differ? in search of norms, these papers might ask other interesting questions such as how was it experienced?, what accounts were given?, how was the process justified? or whose voice was heard? A range of methods and analytic techniques (e.g., interviews, ethnography, observation, case study, narrative analysis, discourse analysis) are welcome. The papers must demonstrate how the epistemological perspective taken can contribute significant insights into the topic addressed.

Manuscripts must be received by April 30, 2005. Authors should prepare and submit manuscripts in the usual way (see http://www.bps.org.uk/publications/jOP_1.cfm) and in accordance with regular JOOP guidelines. When submitting your paper, please indicate on the front page that it is for the special section on neglected approaches.
All submissions will be blind reviewed, using the normal JOOP review process but drawing on a set of evaluation criteria specific to the requirements of alternative approachescriteria such as reflexivity, credibility, authenticity, liberation and insight. Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to g.symon@bbk.ac.uk or c.cassell@sheffield.ac.uk
