The Journal of Personnel Psychology (JPP) is seeking proposals from prospective guest editors for special issues to be published in the 2014 and 2015 volumes. Proposals will be evaluated by the team of associate editors, and the guest editor(s) will be responsible for overseeing the review process and selecting the content of the issue.

Successful proposals must have an overarching theme that fits the mission and scope of JPP. To give a few examples, JPP (formerly Zeitschrift für Personalpsychologie, ZPP) in the past years published special issues on

  • Commitment in organizations (2006, guest edited by Rolf van Dick and Michael Riketta)
  • Assessment centers (2005, guest edited by Stefan Höft)

In 2013, JPP will publish a special issue on the Role of Norms in Virtual Work (guest editors: Karin Moser and Carolyn Axtell).
