Amber Stark / Tuesday, August 8, 2023 / Categories: Member News, Items of Interest, SIOP Source Could You Be the Next IOP Editor? Are you detail oriented? Organized? Interested in the latest I-O research? If you answered yes, then consider applying to become the next editor in chief of Industrial and Organizational Psychology (IOP), SIOP’s premier journal. The journal is unique among academic publications because it uses a focal article/commentary format. This format allows for spirited debate and expands the topic at hand, providing multiple points of view in one issue. Current Editor Tori Howes explained, “We welcome submissions from a variety of disciplines as long as the information is relevant to the science and practice of I-O psychology. Another fun fact is that the 2022 Impact Factor was released a few weeks ago. IOP has done particularly well with an IF of 15.8 (compared to the 2021 IF of 9.375) and is ranked number 1 in applied psychology.” In addition to the prestige of editorship, the next IOP leader receives a stipend, appoints their own board, and helps guide the journal for 3 years. Some academics even receive a teaching and/or service reduction in exchange for their service to the journal. “IOP focal articles and commentaries are used frequently in graduate seminars. The topics are relevant to both science and practice, and the format of IOP means that academics and practitioners can engage in dialogue together,” Howes said. “These are exciting points - and how you choose to lead IOP means you could have a tremendous impact on the future of I-O. If you have an interest in the future of our field, you should definitely consider stepping into this role. Find all the information about this exciting position on the SIOP website.
