Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to an upcoming special issue in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology entitled: "New Frontiers in Employability Research: Towards a Contextualized Perspective of Employability Development". With this special issue, we aim to assemble a collection of papers that strongly advance scientific knowledge on the role of context and time in employability research. Thereby, we hope to stimulate new directions in employability research that give rise to more 'tailor-made', evidence-based employability policies and practices aimed at specific groups or categories of workers.

The submission deadline for the special issue is January 1st 2022. We primarily aim for longitudinal quantitative and qualitative studies that can probe employability development, though conceptual papers are also welcome. We strongly encourage interested authors to submit a brief abstract of their intended submission. This will allow the Guest Editors to offer preliminary feedback about the potential fit with the special issue and suggestions for potentially improving the fit and scope of the intended study.

More information can be found on the special issue website: EJWOP Special Issue Employability.

We look forward to receiving many great submissions!

Best wishes,
Pascale le Blanc, Beatrice Van der Heijden, Jos Akkermans, and Ans De Vos
