Call for Papers „21st Century Skills for the 21st Workplace“


Special Section Guest Editors:

Kevin R. Murphy, Colorado State University

Samuel Greiff, University of Luxembourg

Christoph Niepel, University of Luxembourg

This call for papers reflects the rapidly growing need for skills such as complex problem solving, creativity, self-direction, teamwork, or work ethic (i.e., 21st century skills) that enable working citizens to cope with the demands of an increasingly complex workplace. It aims at gathering innovative manuscripts that will advance our knowledge on the nature, measurement, implications, interrelationships, and distributions of a number of skills particularly relevant to the 21st century workplace. Submitted manuscripts may fall into one of three categories: (1) research on the utility of 21st century skills and incremental contributions relative to well-studied constructs such as general cognitive ability; (2) research on the assessment of these 21st century skills; and (3) research on interventions aiming at developing 21st century skills. Only original empirical research will be considered for this Special Section. Suitable manuscripts should target cognitive and noncognitive 21st century skills at the workplace. A more detailed version of the Call for Papers can be found at

Interested authors should prepare a proposal (1000 words max.) that describes the paper they intend to submit. The proposal can be sent directly to Kevin Murphy by email ( by May 6, 2015. Each proposal will receive feedback within 4 weeks and full manuscripts will be due November 30, 2015. Details are provided in the full call for papers.
