The “Research in Organizational Psychology” section is represented by three articles. Longitudinal study by Anna Smirnova“The dynamics of job attitudes of the employee in a threatening of job loss situation” found out a short-term motivating effect of the threat of job loss. The motivating effect of the threat of job loss is lost during six months. Long-term experiencing of the job insecurity leads to the change the job attitude (to the worse) and reduces the labor input. Research team Loan Le, Son Pham, Chinh Ha, Duc Bui explore how relational beliefs — Team-Member Exchange (TMX), and Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) — may affect the organizational commitment in the article “How Team-Member Exchange and Leader-Member Exchange effects on the Organizational commitment: the study of employees in industrial enterprises in North Vietnam”. The work “Emotional intelligence of HR managers: is it really improves management performance?” by Oxana Isaeva and Gerasim Mkrtychyan reveals the lack of correlation the average level of emotional intelligence and professional experience and career growth. According to the survey results, HR managers highly appreciate the role of emotional intelligence in professional activities. At the same time, they are not fully aware of the difference between emotional intelligence and other types of intellectual abilities and the role of its individual structural elements.

There are two papers in the “Organizational psychology in practice” column. The article by Ulyana Podverbnykh "The ecosystem of teams assessment of prospective industrial projects" discussed an implementation of business processes of the assessment ecosystem in the Russian industrial enterprises: assessment of project results and its phases, assessment of individual performance in a team, assessment of the potential of team members, assessment of team potential.

The “Reviews”  is represent by article “The role of organizational identification in organizational change” of Yelena Naumtseva, where author generalize and systematize the scope of study on organizational identification and its role in the situation of organizational change.  Study results give us reason to assume that a high level of organizational identification can both increase willingness to change and reduce it.
