Keywords:Procedural justice, Interactive justice, Organizational citizenship behavior, University
The purpose of this research was to study the relationship between procedural and interactive justice with organizational citizenship behavior. The population under study was all faculty members in Public Universities of Isfahan (1745) in 2011-2012 academic years. Using statistical random sampling based on the size of statistical community, 315 faculty members were selected as our sample. The study had a descriptive correlational design and the required data were collected through using the validated form of procedural and interactive justice questionnaire (Niehoff and Moorman, 1993) containing 16 questions and reliability coefficient (0.83) and organizational citizenship behavior questionnaire (Podsakoff and McKenzie, 1997) containing 24 questions and reliability coefficient (0.87). The obtained data were analyzed using Pearson's correlation coefficient and stepwise regression. Results showed that there is significant relationship between procedural and interactive justice with organizational citizenship behavior. In addition, procedural justice had been the best predictor of organizational citizenship behavior. The results of stepwise regression showed that the best predictor of organizational citizenship behavior in the dimension of conscientiousness had been interactive justice and in the dimension of sportsmanship, it had been procedural justice.
