Aims and Scope

The Journal of Managerial Psychology (JMP) has a unique focus on the psychological and social understanding and impact of management in organizations. The journal concerns itself with application of theory and practice of managerial psychology, which as a field focuses on the behaviors, theories, practice, methods, and tools used to solve workplace problems and increase the efficacy of people at work. Managerial Psychology is a field that applies psychological principles and theory to executive and managerial roles, to support, improve, and advance the effectiveness of those in the roles towards achieving a healthy, meaningful, and productive organization.

JMP strongly encourages empirical articles based on theory and a solid literature foundation that are interesting, novel, impactful, and well executed. The journal has no methodological preference; papers that fall along the qualitative to quantitative to mixed-method approach are welcome and will be given full consideration. Book reviews are not appropriate for the journal. Consideration will be given for full literature reviews that support and justify a series of propositions and advancement of theory in managerial psychology. Thus, conceptual papers grounded in a solid literature foundation, which provides for theoretical development and advancement in the field, are welcome. Case studies that describe actual interventions or experiences within organizations that are grounded in rigorous scientific methods, such as quasi-experimentation, and that can advance the field are welcome.

Why read Journal of Managerial Psychology?

JMP positions itself at the leading edge of developments in psychological knowledge as applied to managing and organizing people and work. JMP encourages novel discourse and the application of theory and best practices in research and science, aiming to provide a bridge from science to practice, and from practice to science.

Why publish in the Journal of Managerial Psychology?

JMP is dedicated to publishing rigorous and unique contributions to understanding the psychological underpinnings and mechanisms of managing in organizations. We aim to find contributions that matter – that make a difference in our science and practice, and that are based on credible scientific methods. Our goal is to make an impact on the field of managerial psychology by publishing good science that can inform practice and good practice that can inform science.
