Personnel Assessment and Decisions is the official journal of the International Personnel Assessment Council (IPAC). The journal welcomes any studies or reviews related to staffing organizations and assessing its members. This might include (but is not limited to) research on:

  • applicant recruitment and assessment
  • selection tools (e.g., interviews, tests, work samples)
  • selection decisions
  • on-boarding and training
  • job search and choice
  • performance assessment and employee development
  • job analysis and competency modeling
Considerable emphasis will be placed on applied research that is novel, accessible, important, and newsworthy (think Psychological Science for personnel psychology). Articles should have practical relevance and be of broad interest. The journal is indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

News (08/06/20) We are announcing a call for papers for a special issue on understanding effects of impression management on assessment outcomes which can be found here. The submission deadline for this issue has been extended to January 1, 2021.
