A Note From the Publisher

It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly seven years since the first issue of The Journal of Psychological Issues in Organizational Culture went to print. And that is why it’s so difficult to inform our readers that Volume 6, Issue 4, will be the final printing of JPOC.

Bridgepoint Education and Wiley have decided to amicably part ways, but in the interim, we’ve boasted an amazing array of creative and diverse articles and have made a significant contribution to the ongoing scholarly discussion of organizational development, leadership, and behavior.

From its first volume, JPOC achieved recognition from publishing peers in the industry and was honored with an APEX 2011 Award of Excellence in the category of New Magazines and Journals. The following year, JPOC received a second APEX Award of Excellence, this time in the category of design and layout.

Our fifth volume anniversary year celebrated the journal’s range of subject and scholarship with articles such as “May the Odds Ever Be With You,” which examined leadership through the lenses of the Hunger Games, a popular cultural franchise targeted at a millennial audience; “Reflections From Prestigious LGBTQ Leaders in Higher Education” which expanded a much-needed discussion beyond the current limitations of deficit-based research; and “Bucking the Stereotypes: My Little Pony and Challenges to Traditional Gender Roles,” which examined how a cartoon for young girls became a cultural phenomenon by unexpectedly bringing the question of gender role to the forefront.

We would like to thank Executive Editors Tina Parscal and Amy Kahn; JPOC Editor-in-Chief Ken Sherman, and all of the Board Members and authors who have acted as reviewers, solicited submissions and tendered articles, for all of their hard work.

But most importantly, we would like to thank all of JPOC’s readers for their curiosity, ideas and support.
