    Solicitation of Proposal for JAP Virtual Research Proposal Development Workshop

    Journal of Applied Psychology Research Proposal Development Workshop Call for Participants

    The Journal of Applied Psychology is hosting a workshop designed to support junior researchers from a variety of backgrounds who have relatively less experience and support with developing a research idea and corresponding methodology. This workshop has three goals. It seeks to (a) provide feedback on a research proposal developed by junior scholars; (b) provide opportunities for junior scholars to develop adequate and high-quality methodology in order to test well-crafted research ideas; and (c) share insights and knowledge with regards to research proposals of others. The workshop will be facilitated by current and former Associate Editors and winners of JAP's "Best Editorial Board Reviewer" award. Each participant will be assigned to a small group led by one team leader. Please note that it is unlikely that the assigned team leader or other participants in the session will be an expert in your specific research. In this small group, participants will receive written feedback on their research proposal from the team leader and verbal feedback from other session participants. 

    The sessions will be held virtually between May 30-August 30, 2024. Exact day and timing will be determined based on participant time zones and availability. This interactive workshop will last 2 hours.

    Please note that in order to keep the size of the discussion group small, space for this workshop is limited. The application process is competitive, and applications will be evaluated based on the participant's experiences with publishing research in top-tier outlets, participant's current mentoring team, and the fit of topic areas between the manuscripts and the expertise of the participating team leaders. We will be giving priority placement to qualified applicants from non-WEIRD (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic) countries. The topic of your research proposal needs to be related to cognitive, motivational, affective, and behavioral psychological phenomena in work and organizational settings, broadly defined. Finally, participating in the workshop does not guarantee the eventual acceptance of the manuscript by the Journal of Applied Psychology.

    To apply for participation in the JAP Research Proposal Development Workshop, please complete this Qualtrics survey ([https://ugeorgia.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0DIjr6hLjsPUKTs]) to provide more information about yourself and your research proposal (including a 2-page summary of the research idea). If you are selected to participate you must submit an 8-page proposal (maximum, excluding references, figures/tables and supplementary materials) and mock study preregistration form (using the form found here: https://osf.io/byu28) by April 15, 2024. 

    Application deadline for the workshop is March 4, 2024. You will be notified about the workshop acceptance by March 15, 2024. 

    If you have any questions, please contact Lillian Eby (leby@uga.edu).
