Aim & Scope

Aims and Scope: The Psychologist-Manager Journal (TPMJ) is a scholarly publication for members of the Society of Psychologists in Management (SPIM) and others with similar interests. Conceptualized as a hybrid between a journal and a professional guide to good managerial practice, it is directed at the practicing psychologist-manager. Submissions are invited for the following areas:

Management Principles: The Theory of Management: Full-length articles (typically 20 doublespaced typed pages, including references) discussing a particular theoretical application. The relevance for the practice of psychology in management should always be clear.

Live from the Firing Line: The Practice of Management: These brief articles (typically under 15 double-spaced manuscript pages) should be lively, well-written, first-hand experiences illustrating particularly effective management techniques or methods, difficult situations or failures. The experiences should hold general appeal to the readership and should clearly communicate the learning that came from the experience.

Research Tools for the Psychologist-Manager: Original empirical research relevant to the practicing psychologist-manager. Studies of applications of management to psychology or psychology to management are welcome, provided they have clear and direct implications for the psychologist-manager. These articles are normally 25 pages or less, including all figures and tables.

Book Reviews and Other Submissions: Innovative contributions of value to psychologist-managers are encouraged.
