Organizational Psychology Review is a new quarterly, peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by SAGE in partnership with the European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology. Organizational Psychology Review's unique aim is to publish original conceptual work and meta-analyses in the field of organizational psychology (broadly defined to include applied, industrial, occupational, personnel, and work psychology as well as organizational behaviour).

Articles accepted for publication in Organizational Psychology Review have the potential to have a major impact on research and practice in organizational psychology and have instant global readership of over 1,200 EAWOP members. They offer analyses worth citing, worth following up on in primary research and worth considering as a basis for applied managerial practice. As such, contributions move beyond straightforward reviews of the existing literature by developing new theory and insights. At the same time, however, they are well-grounded in the state of the art and the empirical knowledge base, providing a good mix of a firm empirical and theoretical basis and exciting new ideas.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

    1. What do we publish?

    1.1 Aims & Scope

    Before submitting your manuscript to Organizational Psychology Review, please ensure you have read the Aims & Scope.

    1.2 Article Types

    Organizational Psychology Review invites submission of conceptual contributions and meta-analyses in all areas of organizational psychology, inclusively defined. Organizational Psychology Review does not publish primary empirical research. Contributions may range from innovative new theory to address emerging issues in organizational psychology on which there is little research yet to thorough reviews of the literature to meta-analyses that quantitatively review and integrate the literature. All contributions should have in common, however, that their primary value lies in their conceptual contribution.

    Contributions should strictly conform to APA guidelines as outlined in the Publication Manual (6th ed.) published by the American Psychological Society, which includes the understanding that the manuscript is not under review elsewhere nor previously submitted to Organizational Psychology Review (the clear exception to the latter being invited resubmissions). (Contributions should typically not exceed 8,000–10,000 words all-included; although we recognize that large meta-analyses by their very nature can be substantially longer, this word limit will typically be enforced for conceptual contributions, and for meta-analyses too their length to contribution ratio is an important consideration in editorial decisions.)

    1.3 Writing your paper

    The SAGE Author Gateway has some general advice and on how to get published, plus links to further resources.

    1.3.1 Make your article discoverable

    When writing up your paper, think about how you can make it discoverable. The title, keywords and abstract are key to ensuring readers find your article through search engines such as Google. For information and guidance on how best to title your article, write your abstract and select your keywords, have a look at this page on the Gateway: How to Help Readers Find Your Article Online.

    2. Editorial policies

    2.1 Peer review policy

    Organizational Psychology Review uses a double-blind peer review system in which submitting authors and reviewers are not known to each other. Submissions sent out for review will be reviewed by two referees. Organizational Psychology Review puts a premium on speedy turn-around, and aims to reach a decision about submissions within 8 weeks.

    2.2 Authorship

    All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A student is usually listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis.

    2.3 Acknowledgements

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who provided only general support.

    2.3.1 Writing assistance

    Individuals who provided writing assistance, e.g. from a specialist communications company, do not qualify as authors and so should be included in the Acknowledgements section. Authors must disclose any writing assistance – including the individual’s name, company and level of input – and identify the entity that paid for this assistance”).

    It is not necessary to disclose use of language polishing services.

    Any acknowledgements should appear first at the end of your article prior to your Declaration of Conflicting Interests (if applicable), any notes and your References.

    2.4 Funding

    Organizational Psychology Review requires all authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate heading.  Please visit the Funding Acknowledgements page on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway to confirm the format of the acknowledgment text in the event of funding, or state that: This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

    2.5 Declaration of conflicting interests

    Organizational Psychology Review encourages authors to include a declaration of any conflicting interests and recommends you review the good practice guidelines on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway.

    3. Publishing Policies

    3.1 Publication ethics

    SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway.

    3.1.1 Plagiarism

    Organizational Psychology Review and SAGE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Equally, we seek to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked with duplication-checking software. Where an article, for example, is found to have plagiarised other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author's institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal action.

    3.1.2 Prior publication

    If material has been previously published it is not generally acceptable for publication in a SAGE journal. However, there are certain circumstances where previously published material can be considered for publication. Please refer to the guidance on the SAGE Author Gateway or if in doubt, contact the Editor at the address given below.

    3.2 Contributor's publishing agreement

    Before publication, SAGE requires the author as the rights holder to sign a Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement. SAGE’s Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement is an exclusive licence agreement which means that the author retains copyright in the work but grants SAGE the sole and exclusive right and licence to publish for the full legal term of copyright. Exceptions may exist where an assignment of copyright is required or preferred by a proprietor other than SAGE. In this case copyright in the work will be assigned from the author to the society. For more information please visit the SAGE Author Gateway.

    3.3 Open access and author archiving

    Organizational Psychology Review offers optional open access publishing via the SAGE Choice programme. For more information please visit the SAGE Choice website.

    As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID.
