    Dear HR Division Members,

    The International Journal of HRM is now inviting proposals for special issues. Let me know if you have an idea you would like to discuss. The due date for proposals is June 1, 2024.

    Best regards,

    Sandy Fisher



    DEADLINE: JUNE 1, 2024

    The International Journal of Human Resource Management is currently soliciting proposals for special issues. For this new round, we invite submissions of proposals for special issues to be published in 2026-27.

    Proposal Guidelines

    The Proposal for a Special Issue needs to include the following:

    ·      The proposed guest editor(s): name, short bio, and contact details (address and mail address), which editor will be the primary contact person;

    ·      Objectives of the Special Issue (maximum 250 words);

    ·      Theoretical contributions of the Special Issue (maximum 500 words);

    ·      International coverage and fit between the Special Issue and IJHRM (maximum 200 words);

    ·      Proposed timeline and information on how the Call for Papers will be advertised.

    A Special Issue should contain a minimum of four and a maximum of seven papers, in addition to a substantial Introduction written by the guest editor(s). The introduction of the Special Issue 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 the domain. The Guest Editor(s) may author a maximum of one other article in the Special Issue.

    Review Process

    Proposals for Special Issues should be submitted to Special Issues Editor Sandy Fisher by June 1, 2024 (sandy.fisher@fh-muenster.de). When submitting a proposal, please include in the email subject line: "Special Issue Proposal IJHRM".

    All proposals will be reviewed by the Special Issues Editor and the Co-Editors-in-Chief of IJHRM (Michael Dickmann, Emma Parry, Fang Lee Cooke, Sandy Fisher) and assessed based on the quality of the proposal, qualifications of the proposed guest editor(s), and the fit with the journal. Decisions will be announced by the end of June 2024. The Special Issues Editor will liaison with the guest editor(s) of the selected proposals throughout the process, from posting the Call for Papers to sending the final 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.
