An Analysis of Studies on Organizational Citizenship Behaviors in Turkey: 2000-2015
Yaylaci, Ali Faruk
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v4 n8 p99-115 Aug 2016
In recent years, the number of studies on the organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs) that reflect the mainstream tendencies has dramatically increased especially in the field of business and educational sciences in Turkey. On the other hand, there is a need for a new conceptualization of the OCBs better suited to educational organizations. An overall evaluation of education-related studies on the OCBs with a holistic approach would be highly fruitful to meet this need. Prompted by such a motive, the purpose of this study is to make a general evaluation on the course of studies on the OCBs in Turkey in the last decade, from 2000 to 2015. This study was designed as a qualitative research. Data were collected through the document analysis, and analyzed in light of the questions about conceptualization of OCBs, method, sample, related structures, etc. According to findings of the study, it is seen that quantitative studies predominate the field. The studies focus on the antecedents of OCBs and the relation between OCBs and such structures as the organizational justice, commitment, leadership, work performance, organizational trust and organizational culture. The studies on the OCBs strongly reflect the approaches developed for business organizations.
