Calling All Authors!



SIOP Committee Seeks White Paper Writers

HR-Business Subcommittee
SIOP Visibility Committee

The HR-Business Subcommittee of the SIOP Visibility Committee has been working on a series of Hot Topic Papers aimed at an HR and business audience—and we need your help to identify other areas that would be of interest!

These short briefs (4-6 pages) discuss important topics in the field of I-O in an accessible and business-friendly way. We have been posting these papers on the SIOP website, and we continue to look for more venues to share these business briefs to a wider audience (if you have any suggestions, please let Jolene Skinner know at skinnerjolene@bfusa.com). We also have more in the pipeline that will be posted in the coming months, and we need your help to identify other areas that would be of interest to the HR and business audiences.

As we evolve our process, we are putting out a general call for papers to the larger SIOP membership. If you are interested in submitting a Hot Topic paper, please submit a one paragraph proposal to Jolene Skinner. Describe your topic (not listed in the table below) and how it addresses an important business need. All papers must be collaborations. We highly encourage scientistpractitioner and professionalstudent partnerships. Because we hope to continue to build our Hot Topic paper library, this is an ongoing open call for papers.

The following white papers are available or in progress (please do not suggest a topic that is covered by the list below).

*High potential: Identification, development, and retention.

*Learning agility: Its use as a measure to identify high potentials.
