Performance Improvement Journal
We want YOU! The editor of the Performance Improvement Journal (PIJ) encourages those who are fans of the journal and have always wanted to submit to do so. Published in partnership with John Wiley & Sons Inc., PIJ is an acclaimed journal geared toward practitioners of performance technology in the workplace. Learn from hands-on experiences with models, interventions, “how-to” guides, and ready-to-use job aids, as well as research articles. PJI also offers updates on trends, reviews, and field viewpoints. The journal deals with all types of interventions and all phases of the HPT process. The common theme is performance improvement practice or technique that is supported by research or germane theory.

We encourage presenters from the ISPI Reno Conference–especially those who presented 90-minute sessions and Chat ‘n’ Chew sessions–to seriously consider turning your presentation into an article for a future issue of PIJ. You have already done the research and given your presentation and received feedback from practitioners who attended your session–just go one step further and put into writing your ideas!

Follow our link www.ispi.org/journal for more details about publishing in the journal. Articles can be forwarded to publications@ispi.org. Follow the Performance Improvement Journal on Twitter @ISPI1962 with hashtag #PIJournal for updates and notifications. We are looking forward to your submission.

Performance Improvement Quarterly
We want YOU! Performance Improvement Quarterly (PIQ) is our peer-reviewed journal created to stimulate professional discussion in the field and to advance the discipline of HPT through publishing scholarly works. Its emphasis is on human performance technologies such as front-end analysis or evaluation. It also offers literature reviews and experimental studies with a scholarly base, and some case studies.

We are always looking for new authors to submit original works from these communities of practice: process improvement, organizational design and alignment, analysis, evaluation, measurement, performance management, instructional systems, and management of organizational performance. However, we are not limited to only those areas. PIQ will consider literature reviews, experimental studies, survey research, and case studies with a scholarly base.

Follow our link www.ispi.org/quarterly for more details about publishing with PIQ. Follow ISPI on Twitter @ISPI1962 with hashtag #PIQuarterly for updates and notifications. We are looking forward to your submission.
