Performance Improvement Call for Papers

Performance Improvement (PI) is a publication of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI). Founded in 1962, ISPI is the leading international association dedicated to improving productivity and performance in the workplace. ISPI and its members use evidence-based performance improvement research and practices to effect sustainable, measurable results and add value to stakeholders in the private, public, and social sectors.

Performance Improvement is committed to presenting multiple voices and multiple perspectives related to the practice of human performance technology (HPT). Geared towards practitioners of performance technology in the workplace, the journal strives to provide specific guidelines on performance technology applications, trends, and issues to help readers expand and understand the scope of HPT.

PI is currently accepting new articles and welcomes manuscripts in a variety of formats such as white papers or essays, practitioner viewpoints, case studies, procedural and process frameworks and how to guides, ready-to-use job aids and assessment tools and guidelines for carrying out applied and action research methodologies. Also of interest to PI readers are updates on HPT trends, reviews of new and relevant books, and summaries of the contributions from major thinkers and doers within HTP and related fields. The main emphasis of the journal is on the practical implications of the experiences and viewpoints of performance technolgists and the applicability of theories or concepts that are presented.
