We are organizing a Special Issue to bring together interdisciplinary perspectives on emotions and occupational health across a wide range of health, life, and social sciences, in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. This is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Emotions in organizational life have become increasingly acknowledged as being critical, both academically and practically, particularly in the last two decades. Researchers and practitioners have sought to extend our understanding and predictability of work life beyond a “rational, cognitive” framework. Theories and constructs, such as affective events theory, positive and negative affectivity (PA/NA), emotional labour, and emotional intelligence, have provided foundational structures upon which to build theory and practice regarding emotions in the workplace. In addition, discrete emotions in the workplace, such as anger, pride, and joy, provide unique information above and beyond broad affect and emotion. In this Issue, we seek to provide a series of empirical and theoretical papers that specifically showcase the role emotions and affect-related constructs play in occupational health.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to understanding the complexity of emotions in the workplace, and occupational health. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
