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 leading a manuscript to be published in top-tier outlets. This workshop has three goals. It seeks to (a) provide feedback on (nearly) finished manuscripts that are led by junior scholars; (b) provide opportunities for junior researchers to engage in manuscript review and peer-feedback process; and (c) discuss effective strategies for responding to reviewer comments/feedback. The workshop will be facilitated by current and former Associate Editors. Each participant will be assigned to a small group led by one facilitator. In this small group, participants will receive feedback on their manuscripts from the Associate Editor and one other workshop participant. The Associate Editor will also provide feedback on the manuscript reviews. Finally, the group discussion will focus on identifying strategies to effectively address the concerns raised by the reviewers on the manuscript.
The sessions will be held virtually between June 7-June 18, 2021. Exact day and timing will be determined based on participant time zones and availabilities. This interactive workshop will last 2 hours.
Please note that in order to keep the size of the discussion group led by an Associate Editor small so that manuscripts can receive full attention, 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 and the fit of topic areas between the manuscripts and the expertise of the participating Associate Editors. The topic of your paper 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 Journal of Applied Psychology.
