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.

News (10/30/15) We have added some resources for authors and reviewers in the left sidebar. Feel free to check them out!

News (1/16/15) Since introducing the journal, we have received a number of high-quality submissions. Given the nature of a minority of submissions we received, a new subsection entitled “Practitioner Demonstration Projects” was added to the Measurement & Measures section.
