IPPA’s Work and Organizations Division is seeking a Copy Editor to join the Editorial Board of its ground-breaking, bi-annual publication, Positive Work and Organizations: Research and Practice.
Positive Work and Organizations: Research and Practice (PWORP), is aimed at creating a space for our member scholars and practitioners around the world to share knowledge, experience, and insights on a common platform, and develop opportunities for networking and growth.
