Journal of Applied Psychology
J Appl Psychol
Published/Hosted by American Psychological Association.
The Journal of Applied Psychology will emphasize the publication of original investigations that contribute new knowledge and understanding to fields of applied psychology (other than clinical and applied experimental or human factors, for which there are more appropriate American Psychological Association [APA] journals). The journal primarily considers empirical and theoretical investigations of interest to psychologists doing research or working in the private or public sector in such settings as universities, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, industry, government, and health and educational institutions. A theoretical or review article may be accepted if it represents a special contribution to an applied field. Topics appropriate for the Journal of Applied Psychology include personnel selection, performance measurement, training, work motivation, job attitudes, eyewitness accuracy, leadership, drug and alcohol abuse, career development, the conflict between job and family demands, work behavior, work stress, organizational design and interventions, technology, polygraph use, the utility of organizational interventions, consumer buying behavior, and cross-cultural differences in work behavior and attitudes. The specific topics addressed, however, change as a function of societal and organizational change; studies of human behavior in novel situations are also encouraged.
