The purpose of the current paper is to present the scope of the Journal of Managerial Psychology. From our perspective, the organization and its members are being affected and are affecting their internal and external contexts. The external environment interacts with the internal one through various mechanisms, including communication, observation, diffusion, interaction, friction, and yearning. Those mechanisms operate simultaneously yet differently at different systemic levels (community, organization, group, and individual). Actors (including institutions, organizations, their members, and stakeholders in the environment) need to develop awareness, strategies, and tactics for approaching those differing levels, the ways by which the various mechanisms manifest themselves at each level, and for different populations. Given the reciprocal interaction of organizations and their environments, we believe that research is needed on the various mechanisms considered in this article. Changes may come from within or from without. Thus, we offer examples and propose directions for research on them.
