Propose a Special Issue for The International Journal of Human Resource Management
Deadline: 30 June 2019
From 2019, The International Journal of Human Resource Management (IJHRM) adopts a Call for Proposal approach to solicit strong proposals for special issues. Instead of approving proposals for Special Issues throughout the year, we will select five proposals for special issues once a year. We therefore invite submissions of Proposals for Special Issues to be published in 2022, with the deadline June 30, 2019.
The Proposal for a Special Issue needs to include the following:
- The proposed Guest Editor(s) / Editorial Team (name, bio and details (address and mail address), max 100 words for every guest editor)
- Objectives of the Special Issue and a provisional title (max 1000 words, excluded references)
- Theoretical contributions (added value) and practical importance of the Special Issue (max 400 words)
- International coverage and fit between the proposed Special Issue and IJHRM (max 200 words)
- Provisional timeline and information on how the Call for Papers will be advertised and generated
A Special Issue should contain a minimum of four and a maximum of seven papers, in addition to a substantial Introduction. The introduction should contain an overview of the field, specific contributions of the Special Issue and a short overview of the articles in the Special Issue. It should also contain future directions for research in this domain. The guest editor(s) are the authors of this Introduction and maximum of one other article in the Special Issue.
Proposals for Special Issues should be submitted to the Special Issue Editor Prof Karin Sanders by June 30, 2019. Please also contact Karin Sanders if you have any queries. When submitting a proposal, please include in the email subject line: “Special Issue Proposal IJHRM”.
All proposals will be reviewed by the Special Issue Editor and the Co-Editors-in-Chief of IJHRM and assessed based on the quality of the proposal and the fit with the Journal. Decisions will be announced by August 15, 2019. The Special Issue Editor will liaison with the guest editors of the selected proposals throughout the process of Call for Papers, till sending all the papers and Introduction to the publisher.
All papers for the Special Issue will be subject to the same double-blind peer review process as regular issues of IJHRM and accepted papers must meet the editorial standard of IJHRM.
