(The) Journal of Organisations and Human Behaviour (JOHB) is a multi disciplinary journal which publishes articles in fields of interest to people who research, teach and apply organisational studies from a human behavioural perspective. The journal brings together researchers and practitioners, both within and outside India, who are in the areas of organization management, change and development, and Human behaviour. This journal covers all private, public and not-for-profit organizations’ conceptual organisational framework in relation to human behaviour. It publishes three sections of articles in each issue. The first section focuses on original, empirical research based papers .The second section stresses upon conceptual /theoretical articles and research reviews about multiple disciplines linking organisations with human aspects of behaviour. The third section includes articles about the applications of organisations and human behaviour analysis in organisational/institutional settings and that have corporate managers/CEOs as an intended audience.
Key Areas / Scope of Journal
Topics covered by the journal include micro as well as macro organisational behaviour. Just to name the few, organisational motivation, perception, attitudes, personality, emotional and social intelligence, well-being and performance on one hand and organisational design, development, change, culture and effectiveness on the other. We are interested in articles that investigate these topics as they pertain to individuals, groups, and broader organisational perspectives. For each topic, we place a premium on articles that make fundamental and substantial contributions to understanding psychological processes relevant to human attitudes, cognitions, and behaviour in organizations.
More so, research papers from interdisciplinary and upcoming areas covering human dimensions in organisations like economic psychology, consumer behaviour, organisational health, environmental issues in organisations, promoting ecological consciousness in organisations, impact of climate change on organisational behaviour and other related fields from culture specific/cross cultural perspective are especially encouraged.Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
An important role of the publisher is to support the extensive efforts of journal editors, and the often unsung volunteer work undertaken by peer reviewers in maintaining the integrity of the scholarly record. It is a tribute to scholarly practice that the system works well and problems are comparatively rare. The publisher has a supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process and is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practices are followed.
We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.
