IJOPE, Call for Papers

Description of the Journal

The International Journal of Psychology and Education (IJOPE), an official journal of Department of Psychology & Education, Faculty of Educational Studies of the University of Education, Winneba, Ghana, emphasises the publication of original investigations that contribute new knowledge and understanding to fields of Psychology and Education (other than clinical and applied experimental or human factors, which are more appropriate for other journals). The IJOPE primarily considers empirical and theoretical investigations that enhance understanding of cognitive, motivational, affective, and behavioural psychological phenomena in work and other organisational settings, broadly defined.

The International Journal of Psychology and Education (IJOPE)  is a multidisciplinary Journal that addresses non-exhaustive sample of topics to include individual differences in abilities, personality, and other characteristics; testing and personnel selection; performance measurement and management; training, learning, and skill acquisition; work motivation; job attitudes, affect, and emotions; leadership; team development, processes, and effectiveness; career development; work–family interface; work stress, health, and well-being; positive and negative work behaviours; diversity and cross-cultural differences in work behaviour and attitudes; technology and work systems; expertise and knowledge management; creativity, innovation, and adaptation; organisational culture climate organisational design, change, and interventions.  IJOPE therefore welcomes papers from researchers, academicians and scholars from all over the world. IJOPE is a double-blind peer reviewed Journal that promotes originality with zero tolerance for plagiarism. IJOPE publishes twice annually: June and December.
