Citizenship pressure refers to a specific job demand in which an employee feels pressured to perform organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). Citizenship pressure not only enriches the related studies of job demand, but also provides a new path for improving employees’ organizational citizenship behavior and work engagement. The previous study achievements involve citizenship pressure mainly focused on its definition, theoretical basis, structure and measurement, antecedents, and consequences. Based on this, we discussed several future research directions including clearly defining the concept of citizenship pressure, fully describing the inner structure based on its sources and types, enriching its forming and influencing mechanisms, and focusing on localization research.

Keywords citizenship pressure      organizational citizenship behavior      job demand      a climate of OCB      OCB norms
