Call for Papers: Special Section
Human Resource Management is soliciting and accepting papers for a special section of the Journal. This section will focus on research methods in HRM. We would like to invite papers for this section, which will be part of the HR Science Forum. Below are more details.
We are interested in receiving papers that help researchers in HRM understand the best practice application of specific research methods, research tools, and research designs.
Human Resource Management Practices in the Family Business Setting
Editor: Donald O. Neubaum (Oregon State University)
While the past ten years have seen tremendous growth in the quantity and quality of scholarly research on family businesses, nearly all of that research has focused on the decisions of, or the interactions within, the family unit. Given the fact that family businesses are responsible for over half of employment in countries around the globe, surprisingly little is known about the human resource practices of these firms. With this in mind, this Special Issue has two broad purposes in mind:
1) Explore the state of the art of research on the human resource practices in family business.
2) Increase our understanding of how the use of human resource management practices influences innovation, growth and performance in family firms.
The Journal strives to create a bridge between theory (academic research) and real-world practices, allowing academicians to learn from practitioners and allowing practitioners to apply leading-edge research theories to their day-to-day operations. Papers submitted for the Special Issue should develop, test or extend theory, as well as provide meaningful implications for family business owners, managers, or HRM practitioners who work or consult for family businesses.
The Special Issue may carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2014 Family Enterprise Research Conference (FERC 2014) (deadline is April 1, 2014), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call (deadline is November 1, 2014).
