    Proposal Guidelines

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

    ·      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 this 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 the Special Issues Editor Sandy Fisher by June 1, 2023 (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 2023. The Special Issues Editor will liaison with the guest editor(s) of the selected proposals throughout the process, from the Call for Papers to sending all 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.
