New I-O Psychology Journal


Personnel Assessment and Decisions is an open-access journal. Although people in industrial-organizational psychology and related fields may be skeptical of open-access journals, such journals have been quite successful in other fields. The open-access format enables practitioners and international scholars to download research articles at will. The open access format also eliminates the prohibitive costs associated with traditional journals. There will be no costs to readers or authors.

The journal will publish short reports of single studies, or concise reports of multiple studies, related to staffing organizations and assessing its members. As such, the focus is on publishing relatively brief articles (an exception is made for meta-analyses) that report cutting-edge scholarship. Novelty, clarity, and accessibility will be paramount. Articles should have practical relevance, and should be of broad interest.

The Measurement and Measures Section of Personnel Assessment and Decisions focuses on scale development and refinement, evidence of psychometric quality, and theoretical and applied problems of psychological measurement. This section has a separate editor and editorial statement.

The Personnel Assessment and Decisions journal is made possible, in part, by a gift from Harry Brull and Myra Barrett.

Personnel Assessment and Decisions is the official journal of the International Personnel Assessment Council (IPAC). The journal welcomes any studies or reviews related to staffing organizations and assessing its members. This might include (but is not limited to) research on:

  • applicant recruitment and assessment
  • selection tools (e.g., interviews, tests, work samples)
  • selection decisions
  • on-boarding and training
  • job search and choice
  • performance assessment and employee development
  • job analysis and competency modeling

Considerable emphasis will be placed on applied research that is novel, accessible, important, and newsworthy (think Psychological Science for personnel psychology). Articles should have practical relevance and be of broad interest.
