Age and Work: Advances in Theory, Methods, and Practice 
Edited by Hannes Zacher & Cort W. Rudolph 

The workforce in most nations around the world is aging, and this has serious implications for the future of work. A distinguished set of authors from multiple disciplines considers the challenges presented by this aging workforce, and discuss how research on age and work has developed, identifying new directions are most likely to advance our understanding of age and work.  Authors examine how age is conceptualized and measured, the role of intersectionality in age research, the role of lifespan theories and generational models, research methods in age research and effective organizational strategies for coping with the challenges and taking advantage of the opportunities presented as the age profile of the workforce changes.

Data, Methods and Theory in the Organizational Sciences
Edited by Kevin R.  Murphy

The increasing availability of big data, unobtrusive data collection and archival data sets has the potential to change the relationships between data, methods, and theory.  This volume considers the implications of the changing nature of data for data integrity and interpretability, theory development, research design, data collection, and analysis.  This volume examines the implications of the changing data landscape for the training of organizational scientists and the conduct of research on behavior in organizations. Finally, it discusses the importance of correcting the current situation, and proposes ways of striking a healthier balance among data, methods, and theory.

Neurodiversity in the Workplace 
Edited by Susanne Marie Bruyėre and Adrienne Colella 

Until recently, neurodiverse individuals (i.e., individuals on the autistic spectrum or who exhibit ADHD or other neurological and developmental conditions that affect behavior and cognition) had limited opportunities in the workplace.  This volume examines how organizations are changing to attract, select and employ neurodiverse workers and to tap the sometimes-unique talents of this workforce.  A distinguished set of experts explore how recruitment, selection, training, career development and job design can be changed to reduce the barriers to employment neurodiverse individuals face.  Other authors examine the role of organizational culture and climate, peers, and leadership, as well as the development and implementation of organizational programs to provide opportunities for a neurodiverse workforce. New directions for research aimed at improving organizations’ ability to attract and utilize a neurodiverse workforce are suggested. 

Expatriates and Managing Global Mobility 
Edited by Soo Min Toh and Angelo DeNisi 

Multinational enterprises (MNEs) are an increasingly important part of the world economy and they continue to rely heavily upon expatriates as part of their global workforce.  This volume examines the way organizations manage international assignments, from how expatriates are selected through to how their repatriation is handled.  A group of diverse authors discuss issues associated with career and adjustment challenges, work-family issues, as well as the unique issues faced by women and members of racial and ethnic minorities who are sent to work abroad.  These authors also deal with new forms of expatriation, the important role played by local employees in the process, and concerns over sending expatriates to hostile environments.  Suggestions for new directions of research are proposed for each area.
