Proposed Topic:

Enhancing Scientific Impact: Publishing Psychology Research in Top Management Journals

Most Work and Organizational Psychologists (WOPs) are trained to publish their research in the leading disciplinary journals (e.g., JAP, PPsych, JOOP, EJWOP). However, increasingly, WOPs are also seeking to publish their work in broader management and business journals (AMJ, Org Science, JOM). These journals often have a broader audience and allow WOPs to communicate their findings and perspectives beyond their own discipline to other scholars in the organizational sciences, thus potentially increasing the scientific impact of Work and Organizational Psychology. However, publishing in management journals often requires a different emphasis in terms of theory, methods and focus. Professor Jason Shaw, Editor of Academy of Management Journal, will share his experiences with publishing psychology research in AMJ and will provide tips for WOPs seeking to do so.
