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.
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).

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 will have the potential to have a major impact on research and practice in organizational psychology. They will offer analyses worth citing, worth following up on in primary research, and worth considering as a basis for applied managerial practice. As such, these should be contributions that move beyond straightforward reviews of the existing literature by developing new theory and insights. At the same time, however, they should be 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.
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.
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 vary 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.)
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you carefully read and adhere to all the guidelines and instructions to authors provided below. Manuscripts not conforming to these guidelines may be returned.
Organizational Psychology Review is hosted on SAGE track, a web-based online submission and peer review system powered by ScholarOne™ Manuscripts. Please read the Manuscript Submission guidelines below, and then simply visit http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/opr to login and submit your article online.
IMPORTANT: Please check whether you already have an account in the system before trying to create a new one. If you have reviewed or authored for the journal in the past year it is likely that you will have had an account created. For further guidance on submitting your manuscript online please visit ScholarOne Online Help.
All papers must be submitted via the online system. If you would like to discuss your paper prior to submission, please contact the editor at email@example.com.
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 our Frequently Asked Questions on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway.
If you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to non subscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self author archiving deposits (green open access) visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.
Within your Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement you will be required to make a certification with respect to a declaration of conflicting interests. Organizational Psychology Review does not require a declaration of conflicting interests but recommends you review the good practice guidelines on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway.
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.
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, writing assistance, or a department chair who provided only general support. Authors should disclose whether they had any writing assistance and identify the entity that paid for this assistance.
To compile with the guidance for Research Funders, Authors and Publishers issued by the Research Information Network (RIN), Organizational Psychology Review additionally requires all Authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate heading. All research articles should have a funding acknowledgement in the form of a sentence as follows, with the funding agency written out in full, followed by the grant number in square brackets:
This work was supported by the Medical Research Council [grant number xxx].
Multiple grant numbers should be separated by comma and space. Where the research was supported by more than one agency, the different agencies should be separated by semi-colon, with “and” before the final funder. Thus:
This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]; the Natural Environment Research Council [grant number zzzz]; and the Economic and Social Research Council [grant number aaaa].
In some cases, research is not funded by a specific project grant, but rather from the block grant and other resources available to a university, college or other research institution. Where no specific funding has been provided for the research we ask that corresponding authors use the following sentence:
This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.
Please include this information under a separate heading entitled “Funding” directly after any other Acknowledgements prior to your “Declaration of Conflicting Interests” (if applicable), any Notes and your References.
