Interested in Shaping the Future of TIP: The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist?

Seeking the Next TIP Editor/Change Agent

SIOP is soliciting nominations for the next editor of The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist (TIP). Today, TIP provides news, research, reports, and noncommercial information related to the practice, science, and teaching of I-O psychology, with four issues published per year (January, April, July, and October). SIOP is reimagining TIP to ensure that it remains valuable and relevant to our members, making this a great opportunity for the next editor to have a significant and lasting impact on SIOP.

Nominations, including self-nominations, with appropriate submission materials outlined below, should be sent via email by January 31, 2024, to Liberty Munson (liberty.munson@microsoft.com), SIOP Communications Portfolio Officer.

What to expect in this role?

The incoming editor will work closely with an advisory task force (comprised of the outgoing editor, editorial board, and members of the Executive Board and Visibility committee) to shape the future of TIP. This is a unique opportunity for someone to collaboratively build and execute a vision for SIOP’s strategic communication efforts.

The TIP editor serves a 3-year term, plus one “in-training” year with the current editor.

During the first year, the editor-in-training will work with the outgoing editor to survey SIOP members and TIP readership to understand the content, format, and frequency of communication that is most valuable to members. The incoming editor will be responsible for working closely with the TIP Task Force to lead this transition and align the publication with SIOP’s strategic communications plan and member benefits.

Nominees must be a SIOP Member or Fellow. Self-nominations as well as nominations by any SIOP Member or Fellow are welcome.

  2. A strong interest in defining, shaping, and implementing the future of TIP;
