Nominate the Next IOP Editor


by SIOP Administrative Office

SIOP is now soliciting nominations for the position of editor-in-chief of the Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives on Science and Practice (IOP) journal. 

The new editor will be selected by the Publications Board and approved by the Executive Board in March 2015.  The new editor-in-training would begin working with the current editor, Kevin Murphy, beginning March 2015, and assumes duty beginning September 1st, 2015

The editor must be a SIOP Member or International Affiliate. Any SIOP Member or International Affiliate can nominate for the editorship. Self-nominations are also welcome.

Position Description

•    a broad knowledge of topic areas and leading experts in the field of I-O 
•    an understanding of the various perspectives that exist regarding important issues to the field
•    the ability to solicit and develop focal articles and responses from all types of contributors (e.g., academics, researchers, practitioners, business leaders etc.) to ensure a balanced set of perspectives
•    a plan for publishing focal article topics that are high in quality and of interest within and outside I-O   
•    the organizational skills necessary to manage a large journal
•    sufficient time to devote to the journal on a regular and uninterrupted basis for 3 years

If you are interested in serving as editor of one of SIOP’s most influential publications, or if you know someone who might, submit your nomination via email by January 1, 2015 to Allan Church (allan.church@pepsico.com), SIOP Publications Officer.
