Aims and scope

JOEPP includes papers which provide synthetic and state-of-the-art reviews, conceptual pieces, and quantitative and qualitative studies on performance and people management process issues.  It carrys research that provides integrative reviews and critiques of existing theory and practice.  To address the multiple-levels of analysis challenge it publishes research papers that tackle performance issues that have relevance at the individual, team, function, organization and societal (policy) level. 
A wide range of papers with strong methodology would be welcome from empirical to conceptual and review papers from the disciplines of management, HR, OS and social sciences.

  • All papers should have a performance connotation, either by including hard performance data or by focusing on key processes and capabilities considered central to performance.
  • The research should cover issues that academics, practitioners and employees see as being important and investigate performance in terms of what it means for organizational effectiveness, business models and the people management process.
  • Papers should be capable of contributing to strategic (and policy) thinking and identifying the long-term performance issues that confront workforces and organizations, with findings that can provide guidance on the best ways forward.
  • The paper format will include obligatory sections on the implications of the study for Policy and for Practice.
