OP is transdisciplinary using organizations to create greater good and noble purpose. This section will address leadership, coaching, emotional intelligence, interpersonal relationships, flourishing, and neuroscience with the usual range of scholarly papers as well as replication and change studies.
The objective of the Organizational Psychology Specialty Section is to encourage and allow for broader worldwide access to research and theoretical articles of both rigor and relevance in the many fields which constitute Organizational Psychology.
Organizational psychology is an extensive field, which addresses timeless concepts including, but not limited to: Individual differences; Personality traits; Well-being; Inter-organizational conflict versus cooperation; Structure and systems; Organizational climate and culture; Roles, style and Identity; HRM and HRD; Competencies and competency development; Complex systems; Teams and Group Dynamics; and Leadership and cross-cultural management.
While we seek to expand and refine boundaries in these core constructs, we especially encourage research from emerging topics, such as:
- Emotional intelligence,
- Social capital
- Networking and Gig work
- Positive psychology
- Interpersonal abuse
- Artificial Intelligence
- Social change
- Neuroscience studies
The Section particularly encourages submissions with the following methodology: (a) theory building; (b) empirical research of the qualitative nature, with discovery of new relationships or phenomenon to model building, whether lab or field experiments, studies or survey studies; (c) empirical research that is quantitative hypothesis testing using multivariate statistics (d) multi-method, multi-trait designs, especially those using some unobtrusive measures (not merely sole source studies); (e) change studies with appropriate rigor in design, measures and statistics; (f) mathematical modeling; (g) meta-analyses.
Accordingly, we welcome authors to submit papers and propose Research Topics from fields such as Occupational Psychology, Positive Psychology, Organizational Development, Human Resource Management, Career Development, Professional Development and Management Development, and faculties of Universities with Schools, Faculty or Departments that deal with leadership, learning, teams, and organizations.
We strive to promote the development of new theory through relevance and rigor.
