Dr. Frank Bosco is a member of the Department of Management at Virginia Commonwealth University. His research spans the areas of human resource management, organizational behavior, and organizational research methods. Dr. Bosco is especially interested in employee staffing (e.g., employee selection), cognitive ability testing, meta-analysis, big data, open science, and approaches for summarizing entire scientific literatures. His research appears in outlets such as Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, Organizational Research Methods, and Personnel Psychology.

Dr. Bosco is co-Founder of metaBUS.org, a winner of the 2013 National Endowment for the Humanities' Digging into Data Challenge and currently funded by the National Science Foundation, SHRM Foundation, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canadian Centre for Advanced Leadership, and the VCU Presidential Research Quest Fund. When launched, the project will enable researchers and practitioners to make sense of more than 1,000,000 research findings by navigating an easy-to-understand "map" of constructs that conducts instant meta-analyses on virtually any topic in the scientific space.
