About the Journal

The Journal of Organizational Psychology (JOP) aims to publish empirical reports and theoretical reviews of research in the field of organizational psychology. The journal will focus on research and theory in all topics associated with organizational psychology within and across individual, group and organizational levels of analysis, including but not limited to: personnel selection and training; organizational assessment and development; risk management and loss control leadership development, marketing and consumer behavior research, organizational culture, organizational justice, organizational performance, performance appraisal, feedback, staffing and selection. It is also the aim of JOP for all research to have an end benefit to practitioners and policy makers. All empirical methods-including, but not limited to, qualitative, quantitative, field, laboratory, meta-analytic, and combination methods-are welcome. Accepted manuscripts must make strong empirical and/or theoretical contributions and highlight the significance of those contributions to the organizational psychology field. JOP is not tied to any particular discipline, level of analysis, or national context.

Impact Information

North American Business Press uses the h-index to measure the impact of its research. We chose this approach as the ISI (Thomson Reuters) citation approach only includes journals listed within their proprietary database. The h-index uses Google Scholar which is a better representation of all published work and we believe it is the direction of the future.

 The h-index is an easy to understand method, proposed by Jorge E. Hirsch, to quantitatively measure the impact of a particular researcher or academic journal. For example, a journal has an h-index of 5, if, during the years 2016 and 2017, five of the total papers published during those years were each cited at least five times. The selection of the years 2016 and 2017 allows for an extra full year (2018) to account for the typical delay in the publication of research, and therefore in the production of new citations.

The 2018 h-index for the Journal of Organizational Psychology is 2.

As a point of comparison, the 2018 h-index for the Journal of Marketing Management is 8, and the 2018 h-index for the Journal of Applied Business Research is 2.
