General Invitation for Special Issue Proposals - deadline extended


The Editors of Human Resource Management Journal invite applications for special issue proposals on themes related to the core aims and scope of the Journal. HRMJ has an established reputation for publishing well-written and influential articles on contemporary issues in human resource management and employment studies. It has an international audience and attracts scholars from across the globe. Special issue proposals will need to be cutting edge in terms of theoretical contributions, methodological innovation and rigour, with a level of critical scholarship that engages with policy and/or practice.

All proposals will be reviewed by members of the editorial team and judged according to quality of the likely contributions and the importance of the topic to the mission of HRMJ. The Special Issue would be published in 2019.

Proposals should include the following as a minimum:
• The proposed Guest Editor/Editorial Team including affiliations and short biographies (150-200 words)
• A statement of the objectives of the special issue and a provisional title
• An indication of the theoretical contribution and practical importance of the special issue written as the text that would be used as the call for papers for the special issue
• A clear indication of how the call for papers will be advertised and generated (e.g. which distribution lists, networks or associations etc.)
• An indication of the international coverage and scope of the focus of the proposed special issue
• A statement demonstrating why the special issue is best placed in HRMJ
• The anticipated timeline for the special issue

Proposals should be submitted to by Monday 31st January 2017.
When submitting proposals please include in the email submission line: ‘HRMJ Special Issue Proposal’.
