Resource Title: Personnel Psychology Call for Papers: Age and Age Differences in the Workplace

Publication Title: Personnel Psychology Special Issue

This Special Issue focuses on mid-life and older adult workers and age-differences in the workplace. The goal is to highlight empirical work that offers insights into research on phenomena related to age at work; proposes and tests new theory; and/or integrates existing work to explain the role of age in employee attitudes, motivation, behavior, well-being, and retirement and how organizations and societies can enhance these outcomes for workers across the lifespan. Studies may use an array of methods including field methodological designs (e.g., longitudinal, multilevel, within-person, qualitative methods, interventions), meta-analyses, and experimental methods.

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 1, 2020 DUE TO COVID-19. To be considered for the Special Issue, manuscripts must be submitted between August 1 and August 31, 2020, with a final deadline of August 31, 2020 by 8:00pm U.S. Eastern Standard Time. Papers for this Special Issue cannot be submitted prior to August 1, 2020. Submitted papers will undergo a double-blind review process and will be evaluated by at least two reviewers and a special issue editor.
