The goal of the chapters in this SIOP Organizational Frontiers Series volume is to challenge researchers to break away from the rote application of traditional methodologies and to capitalize upon the wealth of data collection and analytic strategies available to them. In that spirit, many of the chapters in this book deal with methodologies that encourage organizational scientists to re-conceptualize phenomena of interest (e.g., experience sampling, catastrophe modeling), employ novel data collection strategies (e.g., data mining, Petri nets), and/or apply sophisticated analytic techniques (e.g., latent class analysis). The editors believe that these chapters provide compelling solutions for the complex problems faced by organizational researchers.
"When I first heard of the idea for this book a few years back, I was truly excited. Now that it's finished, I'm truly amazed. Professors Cortina and Landis not only identified a set of topics that will move organizational research forward, but also recruited some of the most knowledgeable people in the world to write on them. This book needs to be required reading in any research methods course oriented toward the organizational sciences. It will truly get students to think about research design issues very differently." - Bob Vandenberg, University of Georgia, Professor of Management, Past Editor, Organizational Research Methods
"Cortina and Landis bring a wide range of research methods that are not familiar to I/O psychologists to the attention of this community. Their introductions of techniques such as catastrophe theory, social network analysis, latent class analysis, petri nets, and experience sampling (to name only a few of the techniques described in this volume) will add breadth and depth to the toolbox of I/O scientists and practitioners alike." - Kevin R. Murphy, Colorado State University
"Scientific progress accelerates when newer methodological approaches allow for the novel examination of enduring issues. I am confident that the methodological approaches described in this wonderful volume will lead to advancements in many important domains for years to come." - Herman Aguinis, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University

The Series of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP)
Launched in 1983 to make scientific contributions to the field, this series has attempted to publish books on cutting edge theory and research derived from practice in industrial and organizational psychology and related organizational science disciplines.
The goal of the series is to inform and stimulate research for SIOP members (students, practitioners and researchers) and people in related disciplines, including other subdisciplines of psychology, organizational behavior, human resource management, and labor and industrial relations.
