Rigor and Relevance
Bell, Bradford S.
[Excerpt] As the incoming editorial team, our goal is to build on this position of strength and to advance both the reputation and readership of the journal. One way in which we intend to do this is by staying true to the mission that has guided P-Psych since its inception, which is to publish rigorous psychological research centered around people at work. Over the years, this focused mission has enabled the journal to publish seminal articles in personnel selection (Barrick & Mount, 1991), person-organization fit (Schneider, 1987), organizational citizenship behavior (Organ & Ryan, 1995), and many other areas of industrial-organizational psychology, human resource management, and organizational behavior. In addition, articles that have recently appeared in the journal have helped to shape current thinking about a diversity of workplace topics, including leadership (DeRue, Nahrgang, Wellman, & Humphrey, 2011), work engagement (Christian, Garza, & Slaughter, 2011), work-family conflict (Kossek, Pichler, Bodner, & Hammer, 2011), and strategic human resource management (Chuang & Liao, 2010).
