Abstract and Keywords

The purpose of this chapter is to highlight some of the most valuable suggestions for future organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) research made by the authors of this handbook. It is organized by section, beginning with future research issues related to the conceptual nature of OCB. Following this, we examine new directions for research on the consequences and antecedents of OCB. Next, we highlight promising ideas related to the mediating mechanisms and boundary conditions of the antecedents and consequences of OCBs that could be investigated in future research. Finally, we call attention to several methodological issues and problems that have implications for future research.

Keywords: conceptualization of OCB, antecedents of OCB, mediating mechanisms, boundary conditions, methodological considerations, future OCB research
