Journal of Organizational Behavior – Special Issue: Affect in Organizational Interpersonal Exchange Processes

In this special issue, we seek to advance the theoretical and practical significance of the role of affect in interpersonal exchange processes at work by studying when, why, and how different forms of affect (i.e., discrete emotions, positive affect, negative affect, emotional regulation, emotional labor, emotional intelligence, affective tone and emotional climate) emerge and shape different forms of interpersonal exchange processes (such as leader-member exchange (LMX), relative LMX, LMX congruence, LMX differentiation, LMX social comparison and also team-member exchange (TMX) and TMX differentiation) among supervisors, subordinates and coworkers across different timespans and levels of analysis.
