Research Excellence

The I/O program at UH prides itself on having a strong research culture. Our faculty members serve on the editorial boards of academic journals in the field and conduct ongoing research in collaboration with each other, our graduate students, and other colleagues in the field.

Research by our faculty members and graduate students has appeared in many high-quality peer-reviewed journal outlets and at regional, national, and international conferences. In fact, a recent article in The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist on the research productivity of I/O doctoral programs (Beller, Zimmerman, Doerr, & Clark, 2014) ranks the UH I/O program 15th when considering publications in top journals from 2003-2012 and 8th with regard to institutional presence at the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) conference from 2003-2012.

The high quality research produced by our graduate students has received national recognition. UH student conference papers have been designated for the “Best Paper Proceedings” at the Academy of Management conference and also have been named as best doctoral student papers at other conferences (e.g., SIOP and Southern Management Association). You can learn more about the research honors and awards earned by our grad students on our Student Success page.

Drs. Eisenberger and Witt are both fellows of SIOP and the APA (American Psychological Association). In addition, a study released in 2010 indicated that they were among the top 3% in productivity among scholars publishing in top-tier organizational science journals from 1988 to 2007. Learn more about our faculty and their research on our Faculty page.

 Graduate students in the Psychology Department at the University of Houston will have opportunities to participate in collaborative cross-program research.
