Top 20 Most Prolific Presenters at SIOP 2015

2015 March 11

The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology is the primary organizational affiliation for industrial/organizational psychologists, and its annual conference has a substantial impact each year on the thinking and networking of the field.  So have you ever wondered who the most prolific presenters are each year?

Well I did. And not just because I thought I’d be on it! That’s very cynical of you! (Wait, was that out loud?)

This year, 2724 different people appear on the SIOP program. It’s huge! Who are the biggest influencers? The Top 20 appear below (because who can resist a listicle?), which are really 21, because there was an 8-way tie for 14th! If you don’t appear on the list, never fear – you can find your precise ranking and value as a human being by taking a look at the original data here.

And if it’s not blatantly obvious by now, I think judging yourself on rankings is a little silly. This is just for fun!

    “Prolific” – interesting word choice. Assume given you are on the list, it describes value not simply volume.
    Not surprising that researchers/academia top the list with only 1 consultancy and 1 firm making the list. Would be good to see a more international representations of institutions and research focus descriptions going forward.

      Oh no, it only describes volume. I like to think my contributions are of value, but I cannot vouch for the others. 🙂
