Morgeson Annual Review
This inaugural volume of the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior initiates what we believe will be an essential resource for
those who study people at work. I would like to introduce this new series, provide a little background on its origin, and outline what we see as our distinctive mission.
For over 80 years, Annual Reviews has published comprehensive collections of critical reviews written by leading scientists. It currently publishes 46 journals across numerous disciplines within the biomedical, life, physical, and social sciences. Prominent among these journals is the Annual Review of Psychology, one of the highest-impact journals in psychology. Each year since 1950, the Annual Review of Psychology has published a handful of articles in the field of industrial and organizational (I/O) psychology, human resource management (HRM), and organizational behavior (OB). Although these articles have been highly impactful, their focus has often been necessarily broad, and limited space has prevented more indepth coverage of the full range of I/O psychology and HRM/OB topics. Recognizing this, the Annual Reviews Board of Directors approved the creation of the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior, a journal devoted to publishing reviews of the I/O psychology and HRM/OB literature.
