Ripco evolves
Revue Internationale de Psychosociologie et de Gestion des Comportements Organisationnels (RIPCO)
The fifth RIPCO research day, focused on "well-being/malaise at work," brought together 93 participants and featured 35 presentations from 63 international contributors at the ICN campus in Paris-La Défense on June 6, 2024, and the editorial committee is considering transforming this annual event into a two-day academic congress.

Development of RIPCO over the next three years

In the coming years, the RIPCO team will pursue its development strategy through actions already underway since 2018 combined with new essential steps to ensure that the journal becomes a reference exclusively dedicated to OB. The emphasis will be on the determining factors of the journal's evolution in line with the new criteria for ranking management journals in 2025 announced by the FNEGE Scientific College. The following paragraphs briefly report on these development paths.


Strengthen RIPCO’s position as an academic journal

RIPCO plans to consolidate its position as the only management journal in France exclusively dedicated to the study of organizational behavior. The new image of the journal, created and conveyed over the past three years by its stakeholders, should enable it in the short term to publish only research work that sheds new light on organizational behavior, and to progressively move away from subjects addressed by other specialized journals in France. The large francophone base will be preserved, but coupled with real international visibility so that researchers from the English-speaking world become aware of works from the French-speaking world. The challenge is for the journal to forge a legitimate place in order to make a contribution to major international scientific and cultural exchanges.


Consolidate its role as a gatherer of OB researchers

Following the research days already organized in 2019 and 2021, RIPCO plans to further develop its gathering role with the objective of providing spaces for constructive exchanges around organizational behavior issues. In doing so, RIPCO aims to develop multidisciplinary collaborations. Exchanges will continue to take place on all of the traditional concepts of OB while exploring particular themes in line with an evolving political and economic context. The ambition of the journal is to play a federating role among French-speaking actors on major themes of organizational behavior to bring together efforts that are currently still too dispersed.


Progress in rankings and referencing

The referencing of the journal on Cairn International and references in progress by Scopus will significantly increase the visibility of RIPCO at the international level. These references are essential to meet the new criteria for ranking management journals announced by FNEGE this year. To achieve this goal, the emphasis will be on increasing the journal's impact by enhancing the value of its articles before, during and after their publication, using all the human and technological levers required.


Continued internationalization

The internationalization of the journal will continue at all levels with the consolidation of the international and multidisciplinary editorial team, the scientific committee, the body of reviewers and especially the contributors. The stated strategy is to become a bilingual journal in the medium term. Manuscripts can be submitted either in French or in English. In the short term, new French manuscripts will be translated into English on a voluntary basis, whereas in the medium term this practice will become the norm.


Encourage research on sustainable development issues

Since organizational behavior issues are at the heart of the sustainable development of organizations, RIPCO will encourage research dedicated to sustainable development, CSR and ecological transition. The objective is to encourage the development of adapted practices in organizations in order to contribute to the resolution of problems directly or indirectly related to global warming.


Evolution of the periodicity of publications

RIPCO will continue its efforts to increase the share of direct submissions. These have been steadily increasing since 2018, and so more frequent publication of regular issues is not excluded. If necessary, three or four issues could be published per year, while maintaining two annual special issues, provided, of course, that the quality of the manuscripts is in line with expected academic standards.

Artificial intelligence in organisations, how to (better) work with it?
Guest editors: Christelle MARTIN LACROUX and Fabienne PEREZ
Deadline : 31/08/2024
Organisations are undergoing a significant transformation, described as the fourth industrial revolution or the era of algorithms. Artificial Intelligence (AI), defined as a technology that allows machines to reproduce human-like behaviours, plays a major role in this, with technologies now widely deployed in organisations. Machine Learning is a notable technology that enables cumulative learning from training data to create algorithmic decision support systems. These technologies are reshaping practices and processes at both team and individual levels. AI has transformed how people collaborate with algorithmic systems and how those systems interact. In recruitment, AI is used in various stages, from information extraction to automated interview analysis. "Augmen ...

Sensitive research and organisational behaviour: from dilemma to action
Guest editors: Emilie HENNEQUIN, Bérangère CONDOMINES, Philippe JACQUINOT, Olivier GUILLET
Deadline : 31/08/2024
In organizations subjected to a highly competitive environment, with an increasingly fractured work world, the consideration of sensitive topics by companies—pertaining to ethical issues (fraud, deviance, power plays), taboos (addictions), vulnerable individuals (health conditions), disadvantaged groups (discrimination), and marginalized statuses (gray areas of employment relationships)—as well as behaviors related to private life (domestic violence) becomes as pressing as it is complex, often echoing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) challenges. The field of "sensitive research" helps to understand the emotional, managerial, and strategic difficulties faced by all stakeholders (executives, operational managers, employees, researchers, etc.) and to propose an operational framework to g ...
