The state of I-O Psychology research: Where have we been, and where are we going?
Gilad Chen, Ph.D. (University of Maryland)
In 2017, the Journal of Applied Psychology (JAP) has celebrated its Centennial. For this occasion, leading experts in our field have reflected on 100 years of I-O psychology research (see a Special Centennial Issue, published by JAP in March, 2017). In this talk, I will first briefly summarize key milestones and trends in I-O psychology research, based on the recent JAP Centennial Issue. Reflecting on my experience as JAP Editor, I will then discuss emerging trends pertaining to publication topics, methods employed in our research, and other publication issues (e.g., open science topics). Throughout the discussion, I will also consider the important interplay between academic/scientific and practice/applied issues in our field.
