Research Models of the Future for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
Barrett, Gerald V.
This paper presents three different aspects of research in industrial and organizational psychology. First, characteristics of major advances in science, and in the social and behavioral sciences are given, including: (1) team research is more common for major advances; and (2) young men under 35 are responsible for many major contributions. Secondly, the characteristic ways industrial and organizational psychologists conduct their research and the research requirements in these areas for the seventies are considered, including: (1) standardization; (2) replication; (3) more funding; (4) more valid instrumentation; and (5) measured response to "innovation". Third, considering the above two areas, the optimum approaches of industrial and organizational psychology research to meet the requirements of the future are explored. Examples included the setting up of a series of panels to serve as standard-setting groups, problem solvers, links between the academic and non-academic researchers, and to perform functions which are described.
