Department or Administrative Unit
After defining and providing the current status of psychological capital (PsyCap), we address the need to better understand its stability (i.e., state vs. trait). Specifically, we issue a call for longitudinal research. The balance of this ‘‘incubator’’ article examines the relevance, potential obstacles, and advantages of this design in meeting PsyCap’s future research needs.
