Management professors to be published in Journal of Applied Psychology
A paper co-authored by two management professors has been accepted for publication as a featured article in the Journal of Applied Psychology.
Marne Arthaud-Day, associate professor, and Bill Turnley, professor, along with Joseph Rode, of the department of management at the Farmer School of Management at Miami University, submitted the paper “Direct and Contextual Effects of Individual Values on Organizational Citizenship Behavior in Teams”
Brian Niehoff, professor of management and associate provost for institutional effectiveness, also contributed to an earlier version of this paper.
The researchers used Schwartz’s theory of universal value types to look at the relationship between values and organizational citizenship behaviors performed in a group setting. Among their findings is support for multiple motivations for why people perform organizational citizenship behaviors, strong effects for self-direction values, and that similarity in values can reinforce, or attenuate, organizational citizenship behaviors.
The Journal of Applied Psychology is a publication of the American Psychological Association, and publishes empirical and theoretical research that promotes the understanding of psychological events, including cognitive, motivational, affective and behavioral.
Arthaud-Day's areas of teaching include strategic and international management. She has been published in the Academy of Management Journal, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, and the Business Ethics Quarterly among others.
Turnley is the Sam and Karen Forrer chair in business ethics, as well as a College of Business Administration faculty fellow. His areas of teaching include organizational behavior and human resource management. He has been published in many journals, including the Academy of Management Review, and the Journal of Management.
