Aims of the Special Issue and possible topics
The aim of this In Practice Special Issue is to provide a platform for practitioners and researchers to showcase the latest practice, research and trends in the areas of innovation in performance management and feedback interventions.

We invite both empirical and theoretical submissions and especially welcome contributions from practitioners who have developed and/or implemented innovations in performance management and feedback interventions. In particular, we encourage submissions that address issues related (but not limited) to providing a “missing link” in this area as DeNisi and Murphy called it:

• Is there (some) empirical evidence regarding the relationship between individual performance outcomes and firm level performance?
• What are the latest trends in performance management and feedback interventions?
• If “instant” or “continuous” feedback is the right thing to do, is there evidence regarding its effectiveness or is it just “old wine in new bottles?”
• Evidence-based techniques, tools and methods in the area of performance management and feedback interventions
• Empirical research in the organizational context on innovations in performance management and feedback interventions
• Also, very much appreciated are studies conducted outside the field of organizational psychology, such as for instance in sports. The learnings from performance management in sports can be very fruitful to the organizational domain (Roth, Young, Koenig, Schmerling, & Pritchard, 2017).

In order to be considered for publication in the Special Issue, a proposal of 1,000-1,500 words (can include a figure/table) should be submitted by 1st October, 2018. The editors will review the proposals and contact authors with an invitation to submit full manuscripts up to a maximum of 7,000 words by 1st March, 2019.

Proposals and full papers must be written in English and in the style of In Practice (see

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not be in the process of being submitted to other journals. Publication of this Special Issue is planned for October, 2019.
