INTRODUCTION: Research Methodology in I/O Psychology. Changes are constantly occurring in industrial-organisational (I/O) psychology in response to the emergence of new theories and adoption of new research methodology (see Porter & Schneider, 2014). For example, the issue of bias in selection testing (Volume II) has had a dramatic impact on the organisational psychology (OP) field and has stimulated re¬ search into new constructs, such as organisational behaviour (OB), and preemployment integrity tests (Ones et al, 2003). In addition, problems that employees face transferring newly acquired skills to the workplace have also been the subject of considerable research efforts (Baldwin & Ford, 1988). In recent decades, there have been major advances in I/O research methodology and multivariate statistical procedures, most notably, meta-analysis. Likewise, as Aamodt (2013) point out, there have been advances in technology with the advent of the World Wide Web (Internet) enabling online screening and recruitment of job applicants, use of social media (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedln), e-learning and distance education.
